The WBC heavyweight champion has enlisted a variety of different boxers to prepare him for his upcoming fight
Deontay Wilder has revealed three of his sparring partners ahead of his December 1 world heavyweight title fight against Tyson Fury.
The 32-year-old invited YouTube outlet ThaBoxingVoice into his camp, and they showed footage of Robert Alfonso, Craig Lewis and Michael Polite Coffie discussing preparations with the WBC champion.
