Wilder: Winner of Joshua-Molina Sees Me
Undefeated IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and challenger Eric Molina will both be looking to make history when they face off with the title on the line on Dec. 10. Joshua looks for his second title defense and to continue his undefeated ways, while Molina gets a second chance to become the first Mexican-American heavyweight world champion.
But another world heavyweight champion will be up-close for their fight, as WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will be a part of the Showtime broadcast team for the telecast. In fact, he has experience competing against one of them, as Wilder made his first title defense back in June 2015 against Molina.
Now coming off of rehabbing a fractured right hand and torn right bicep, Wilder told BoxingScene that he is on the hunt to win as many heavyweight world titles and unify the division.
"I know firsthand just how tough Eric Molina is," Wilder said. "He’s coming to win because it’s a chance for him to win a world title, and he’ll definitely push Joshua. Whoever wins will have to see me eventually because it’s my goal to collect all the belts and become the undisputed heavyweight champion."
