I'm tired of hearing this Chump lie over and over again. His yes boy gives me a book because I'm sure neither of them can read it. They don't need to read #ANDTHENEW because they will hear it loud and clear come… https://t.co/D3LQBsCrQ8

The time for talking is over. Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main event.
TALE OF THE TAPE
DEONTAY WILDER (40-0-1, 39 KOs)
WEIGHT: 223.25 lbs.
DOMINIC BREAZEALE (20-1-0, 18 KOs)
WEIGHT: 255.25 lbs.
Andrews: The bottom line here is that this fight is taylor made for Wilder’s style. Breazeale is a fighter who likes to come forward and punish you and doesn’t mind eating shots to do it. This should give Wilder many opportunities to establish his jab and to catch Breazeale coming in with his patented right hand.
Breazeale has a puncher’s chance aside from connecting with a big shot if he can work the body of Wilder and maybe slow him down by the later rounds, but Wilder should be ready and waiting for that. The best defence for Breazeale is a good offence, but it will likely be his downfall. I would be shocked if this went past the ninth round.
Andrews Prediction: Deontay Wilder via TKO (6th Round)
