According to Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, an exciting heavyweight matchup between unbeaten knockout artist Deontay Wilder (27-0, 27 KOs) and IBF #9 Tony Thompson (37-3, 25 KOs) could happen in the next couple months. Schaefer apparently wants to match the two Americans in a CBS televised boxing event in order to showcase Wilder in front of a national audience against the toughest opponent of his young career. In regard to CBS, Schaefer said to the New York Fight Blog at ESPN: "We want to expose boxing to sports fans who haven't really watched boxing."

Interesting matchup.

I know many don't particularly rate Wilder but how do you see this one panning out?
