Its been a little less than a month for Deontay Wilder (37-0, 36KOs) to have an opponent for his February 25th date. The search started when Deontay’s original opponent, Andrzej Wawrzyk tested positive for the steroid stanozolol.
Where to find a quick opponent in boxing? Look no further than heavyweights that fought on the same card in the past. I mean that’s what they’re there for.
Gerald Washington (18-0-1, 12KOs) gets the selection. Washington fought on the undercard against Ray Austin, knocking Ray out in the fourth. The same night Deontay Wilder knocked out Chris Arreola.
Deontay Wilder vs. Gerald Washington will take place February 25, 2017 at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.
