In one of the most intriguing heavyweight match-ups in the last ten years, explosive 29 year old Deontay Wilder (32-0, 32 KO) will face WBC heavyweight champion Bermane Stiverne (24-1-1, 21 KO) of Canada on Saturday.

Combacking former light heavyweight champion turned heavyweight contender Antonio Tarver predicts the January 17th WBC Heavyweight Title fight between title-holder Bermane Stiverne and undefeated challenger Deontay Wilder will end in a knockout within six rounds.

"If the fight ends within three, I like Wilder by knockout," Tarver told On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

A youthful and well-preserved 46, Tarver added, "I just think Wilder has a chance to clip him early.

[But] if Stiverne can withstand that and get that right hand in range and not take shots straight down the middle, I see him catching Wilder around round three or six."
