Rumors of Wilder-Stiverne II surface

The sport of boxing didn't need anymore dull rematches on deck. With talks of Pacquiao-Bradley III, Fury-Klitschko II, and Kovalev-Pascal already signed the fair share of rematches that nobody cared about should have been over. However, a Canadian media outlet broke news that WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder may be negotiating a rematch with Bermane Stiverne, who he took the belt from last January. There was no further comment from anyone with knowledge of that fight in the boxing industry. A recent interview with TMZ stated that Wilder may be interested in the 44 year old Shannon Briggs. The fight is scheduled to take place in just over a month at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn so an opponent needs to come fast.
