"I don’t have any doubt in my mind, I could knock out any man in the heavyweight division. The thing about me is that I have been blessed with God-given power. I don’t have to build up strength, I have been blessed with it. I do lift weights and train hard, but I am a very special individual – a very special man, with very special talent, and very special power. I can get any man, ANY MAN, out of there in a matter of seconds. That is the thing I love about myself." - said Deontay Wilder.
