So we won’t see the promised rematch against Tyson Fury just yet.
It’s official that The WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will defend his belt against his mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale on May 18 at the Barclays Center in New York.
Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza explained: “It was critical for Deontay that this fight be available, not on PPV, but on Showtime.
“This is where a world heavyweight championship belongs, on Showtime, not on a streaming platform with a limited audience and limited viewership…
“He’s made a decision that demonstrates his loyalty and a decision that guarantees financial success for a long, long time.”
