Deontay Wilder on Tuesday announced he will be making his mandatory defense in SHOWTIME, remaining with Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) , despite a big offer for a switch over to DAZN. 

Wilder believes he is in good hands,  because big fighters like Floyd Mayweather grew into stardom working with the PBC, Al Haymon, Showtime’s Stephen Espinoza.. 

The WBC Heavyweight World Champion  Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs) received huge money offers from DAZN’s John Skipper and Bob Arum’s Top Rank/ESPN but has chosen to to stay with PBC and SHOWTIME because if they could do great with Floyd Mayweather, they could also propel him to Stardom.
“You’ve gotta look at Floyd – he’s a small fighter,” Wilder told a group of reporters following the press conference. “And if you were able to do what he did, being a small fighter, like I said, people don’t wanna sit around for 12 rounds now. I done been to many a fights and seen people get antsy, and a lot of people can’t wait till it just be over, just like this. You know what I mean? They don’t wanna see 12-round fights, but they’ll pay for it because of their love and passion for boxing. 
“Floyd came around at the right time in his career, because he was overshadowed by the heavyweight division. They say when the heavyweight division falls, so does everything else. But it gave him an opportunity to rise. That’s how he got to [Oscar] De La Hoya [in May 2007]. The universe worked for him. It was a moment in time, and when he got that opportunity, he took it away. He was with the right rthat knew how to get him where he needed to be. And guess what, my friend? I got the same damn people.”

Wilder also announced that his mandatory defense against Dominic Breazeale (20-1, 18 KOs) will be distributed on Showtime Pay Per View.

Deontay Wilder has knocked out all but One of his 40 opponents and believes that fighting Anthony Joshua and Rematch with Fury could get him far better money than offer received from DAZN.

“And the main thing, the most important thing about this, is I’m a heavyweight, I’m an American and I have the power,” Wilder said. “Easy. Imagine Floyd having power, [if] he would be knocking them out like I do? Oh, man, what? Easy.”
