Two heavyweight contenders picking Dominic Breazeale to upset Deontay Wilder

Heavyweight contenders Michael Hunter and Dave Allen both feel Dominic Breazeale can unseat WBC champion Deontay Wilder tonight


Dominic Breazeale may be a 5/1 underdog with bookmakers to upset WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in their Brooklyn grudge match tonight, but at least two of his fellow contenders fancy him to give the title-holder more "Trouble" than he can handle.


Breazeale’s fellow Californian Michael Hunter, unbeaten since stepping up from cruiserweight and who meets Fabio Maldonado next week, is edging towards a change at the top of the heaviest division.


"I would say Breazeale has a great chance at winning," Hunter told Seconds Out. "He has a lot to fight for and I wouldn’t be surprised at an upset."


Doncaster cult hero Dave Allen goes a stage further, actually expecting Breazeale to knock out the reigning champion. Allen has been impressed with Breazeale’s recent three-fight winning streak, all inside the distance, and explains in this video why he feels the challenger will emerge victorious.
