Want more proof that Deontay Wilder isn't treating his fight against replacement opponent Jason Gavern as a tune-up bout? Wilder wrote and performed this song:
Wilder (31-0, 31 KO) was originally supposed to take a big step up in competition by fighting WBC heavyweight belt holder Bermane Stiverne on the Shawn Porter-Kell Brook undercard this Saturday, but that fight had to be postponed after Stiverne suffered an injury. Wilder has decided to go ahead and face replacement opponent Jason Gavern (25-16-4, 11 KO). Gavern is not perceived as a threat to Wilder and most observers view this fight as more of the same in terms of Wilder's level of opposition. Wilder has himself admitted that he would be a laughing stock if her were to blow this fight.
The music video was produced by Showtime and features clips of Wilder beating up heavyweight fighters that aren't as good as Bermane Stiverne.
