DEONTAY WILDER DISCUSSES HIS INJURIES & HIS WIN OVER CHRIS ARREOLA

“I’m going to still give it to you, whether I have one hand or two hands. I won’t stop. As a champion, it’s my duty to keep going no matter what I’m going through. Pain ain’t nothing to me…It was very satisfying to punish a guy like Chris Arreola. I straight punished him. I didn’t get my knockout like I want, but it was a knockout. I’ll take that on my record. I still advanced to 37-0 with 36 KOs,” stated undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, who talked about his broken hand immediately after his TKO victory over Chris Arreola. Check it out!

Q: What round did you hurt your hand?

DW: It was early – the third or the fourth round. It was from an (awkward) punch. I hurt the hand first, and then the bicep.

Q: Was he tougher than you thought?

DW: He was just as tough as I thought he would be. I know he was scared of the right hand for sure. I think I would have gotten him out of there (in the fourth round) if he didn’t hold the ropes. On that last one he told me in my ear, I had to hold the ropes. I had to hold the ropes.

I got one of the best jabs in the world, because I have super trainers. I got Mark Breland, who showed me all kinds of ways to throw my jab. I got Russ Ambers who shows me techniques. I have Jay my long-time trainer on everything, and of course I have Cuz Hill who gives me great work on the mitts.

Look at my hand; this thing hurts.

Q: What does it say about your toughness that you were able to fight for four rounds with a broken right hand and a torn right bicep?

DW: Man, it let’s me know I’m a force to be reckoned with. If I have one hand or two hands, you can’t deny that I’m the best in the world. I’m going to still give it to you, whether I have one hand or two hands. I won’t stop. As a champion, it’s my duty to keep going no matter what I’m going through. Pain ain’t nothing to me. I got a high tolerance on pain. When you’re dealing with fights, it’s not over until it’s over. Whoever fights me, they have to be ready. They just can’t come in and think they’re going to bully me or think they’re going to out-tough me or think they’re going to out-punch me, because there ain’t no out-bullying, there ain’t no out-toughing, there ain’t no out-punching, because I’m the heavyweight champion of the world. That means a lot to me.

Q: How satisfying was it to put on such a gutty performance before your home State fans?

DW: It was very satisfying to punish a guy like Chris Arreola. I straight punished him. I didn’t get my knockout like I want, but it was a knockout. I’ll take that on my record. I still advanced to 37-0 with 36 KOs.
