Benny Henderson Jr.:
Give the readers your thoughts on your match-up against Wilder?
Bermane Stiverne: "I'm happy to be fighting at home and headlining at MGM."
Wilder has been quoted as saying that he plans on beating you within an inch of your life. You have been quoted as saying you want to hurt him. Why the bad blood?
"He wants to beat me up because he don't like me and I don't have any feelings about him. I'm saying that I will hurt him because of his experience and the fighter he is. There's a difference."
You have faced some heavy hitters in your career. And Deontay is coming into this bout with every victory via knock out. Being brutally honest with yourself and the fans. Is his power a concern?
BS: "Not at all. You can't win a war with one weapon and that's all he has, one weapon. I have many tricks and a lot of weapons.”
Without giving away all of your game plan, how will you approach this fight?
BS: "By being smart and delivering pain."
What can the fight fans expect from Stiverne come fight night?
"The best of Bermane Stiverne."
In closing, if you could send a message to Wilder using Doghouse Boxing as a platform. What would that message be?
"Honestly, I don't have any message for him but, next Saturday, I'm pretty sure I'll have a handful of messages for him in the ring."
