Deontay Wilder to defend heavyweight title vs. Andrzej Wawrzyk Feb. 25 on Fox

Unbeaten heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder returns home to defend his belt against once-beaten Polish challenger Andrzej Wawrzyk on February 25 at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama.

The Wilder vs. Wawrzyk fight will headline the first prime-time installment of Premier Boxing Champions in 2017 set at fight time of 8 p.m. ET, FOX.

Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs) known as “The Bronze Bomber,” has never fought since breaking his right hand and tearing his right biceps muscle in an eighth-round stoppage of challenger Chris Arreola last July.

He marks his fourth defense of his WBC title in his home state for the Tuscaloosa native.

Wawrzyk (33-1, 19 KOs) from Krakow, Poland, has only career loss at the hands of Povetkin in 2013, a third-round TKO. He has won all six fights since then, all by stoppage, including a third-round TKO of 40-year-old journeyman Mike Sheppard on a Wilder undercard in Birmingham in September 2015.
