Deontay Wilder is apparently getting a little tired of waiting on WBC heavyweight titleholder Bermane Stiverne to get around to fighting him, so he's taking to Twitter to maybe hope to shame him off the sidelines.
Hey @BSTIVERNE man I just want to send you a Early Get Well basket, should I send it to your choice of hospital/Gym? pic.twitter.com/NShNQ0fOCP— Deontay Wilder (@BronzeBomber) November 14, 2014
Wilder has also created a Twitter account for "Sophia the Belt," which is the WBC heavyweight title that has a crush on -- you guessed it! -- Deontay Wilder.
How can anyone resist that smile? @bronzebomber #mancrushmonday #mcm pic.twitter.com/mH4Rjwmz1Q— Sophia The Belt (@SophiaTheBelt) November 10, 2014
(At least, I assume Wilder is behind Sophia the Belt. I sure hope so. Otherwise it's a little weirder than it is funny.)
Wilder (32-0, 32 KO) won a WBC eliminator in March against Malik Scott, and fought again in August, beating Jason Gavern to stay busy. Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KO) stopped Chris Arreola in the sixth round of their May rematch, claiming the vacant WBC belt. He'd dominated Arreola over 12 rounds in April 2013 in his previous fight.
