The former Haitian heavyweight champion of the world Stiverne Bermane (25-2-1, 21 knockouts) is set to fight Deontay Wilder (38-0, 37knockouts) for the WBC on 4 November almost 2 years since losing it to the American and media favorite in January 2015 by unanimous decision. The Haitian fighter wants to crash the party that is being prepared in the U.K. for the potential clash between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua and claim his belt back.
Stiverne Bermane will have a second shot at Deontay Wilder who routed the former heavyweight champion in a lopsided fight in 2015. The fight is scheduled to take place at Barclays Center, Brooklyn on 4 November this year for Wilder's WBC world heavyweight title.
2017 has brought a mixed bag for Haitian boxers but veteran Edner Cherry valiantly presses on to make sure there is a strong Haitian presence in the elite groups of the various boxing divisions. Edner Cherry is less known in the Haitian media than former and current champions like Joachim Alcine, Andre Berto, Jean PAscal, and Adonis Stevenson mostly due to the American media constantly referring to him as Bahamian despite that the boxer is never shy to display his Haitian pride.
