Deontay Wilder and Bermane Stiverne hit the scales today ahead of tomorrow night’s fight.
Today, starting at 1pm ET, Showtime Sports will be live streaming the official weigh-is for tomorrow night’s card, headlined by Deontay Wilder vs. Bermane Stiverne. In this outing Wilder will be rematching the man he won the title from back in early 2015, and getting his mandatory defense obligation taken care of.
There’s been a lot of harsh talk between the fighters in this build up to this fight, with neither fighter particularly fond of the other, and both have claimed they are quite literally looking for a kill in this outing.
For Stiverne this will be his first fight in 2 years after losing the heavyweight title, and there are plenty of questions about whether he can offer anything more than he did in the first fight — a one-sided loss. Stiverne claims this fight will be completely different as he’s fully healthy now, but whether or not that will prove to be enough remains to be seen. Most are doubtful, though.
Check out the live stream above to catch the festivities. There’s sure to be at least some sort outburst during the weigh-ins given how much the rhetoric has heated up over the past couple of weeks.
