PANDEMONIUM IN NIGER STATE AFTER BANDIT ATTACK
Timothy Bradley, an ESPN commentator, has given his opinion on the forthcoming fights of former WBC Champion, Deontay Wilder.
According to Bradley, Wilder should not rush back into fighting newly crowned WBC Champion, Tyson Fury in a trilogy clash; rather, he should carefully select his fights by taking on either Dillian Whyte or Andy Ruiz.
Whyte and Ruiz would still pose danger to Wilder, though the American would be the rightful favourite in both fights.
Dillian Whyte and Andy Ruiz
Recall that Wilder lost his belt to Fury in a brutal and gallant manner earlier this year (February 22) in their second fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Paradise, Nevada, U.S.
However, the Bronze Bomber immediately exercised his rematch clause, thus triggering an anticipated trilogy match.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the trilogy fight may likely take place in October or November, but Bradley would rather prefer something else for the American heavyweight.
Deontay Wilder vs Tyson Fury II
Below are Bradley's words to ESPN:
There's a couple of good heavyweights out there that Wilder can face. You've got Dillian Whyte; Charles Martin, who's a southpaw.
I think an Andy Ruiz Jr. fight would be good for Wilder as well. Ruiz is the type of fighter who brings it to you.
He's not going to run anywhere, and that'd be good for Wilder, to learn how to box -- set traps and set things up, move, figure out how to punch from different angles, and just learn different tricks of the trade.
Wilder needs to learn how to protect himself. Learn how to make guys miss, instead of standing straight up.
That's his biggest problem -- if you swing at Wilder, he stands straight up. He doesn't move his head left or right.
