In the wake of the cancellation of his heavyweight title defense against Alexander Povetkin in Moscow, Deontay Wilder expressed a desire for his next fight to be somewhere within his home state of Alabama. Wish granted.
Wilder (36-0, 35 KOs) will return to the ring for the first time since mid-January when he faces two-time world title challenger Chris Arreola(36-4-1, 31 KOs) on July 16 in the main event of a Premier Boxing Champions card on Fox. The title fight will take place at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, just 65 miles north of “The Bronze Bomber’s” lifelong hometown of Tuscaloosa.
