Michael “The Bounty” Hunter (19-1-1, 13 KOs) hits the mitts during a recent training session at the Delray Beach Boxing Club in Delray Beach, Florida as he is just 10 days away from his WBA eliminator against former amateur foe Mike “White Delight” Wilson (21-1, 10 KOs) on June 19th.

The bout which is also for the WBA Continental America’s heavyweight title, will be on the undercard of the Triller promoted main event featuring undefeated and unified world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez (16-0, 12 KOs) making his first defense against mandatory challenger unbeaten George Kambosos Jr. (19-0, 10 KOs) at the LoanDepot Park, Miami, Florida.

Hunter defeated Wilson when they were amateurs and Wilson feels that there is unfinished business to be settled between the two.

“It’s going to be a tough fight but this is my coming out party! I see him being stopped. I don’t know what round but I feel like I am going to knock him out,” said Hunter.

  • Lopez will knock out Kambosos in 2 or 3 rounds. I would not be surprised if this ends in 1.

  • Hunter will eat Wilson alive. They could easily have a rematch for the Bridgerweight championship, which Hunter would win again. Hunter is a force in either the Heavyweight class or the Bridgerweight class. Like his father, Hunter is SUPERB !!

    Easy work for Hunter. I don’t think Wilson has a chance.

    • Hunter has alot of talent. His only hang up is being on the smaller side of the heavies. I agree I don’t think he will have any issue at all with Wilson and if he did I would be shocked.

    • His had the ability to go all the way. He was one of the worst managed fighters ever IMO.

    • Thinking like that enables these organizations to get away with their multiple weight classes and champions.

  • Hunter is very good at his weight, so his best shot if he likes to wear green belts is to do the Bridgerweight route. If he wants to have more respect and following he will go the traditional HW route, although that’s a tough one, since the division is deeper than it was for a while. Sure, hunter should win. Hopefully the fight has some good action both directions

  • So if he wins this eliminator (is it a final eliminator by the way?) can he choose which of the WBA champs he wants to challenge?

  • If you’ve never seen Mike Hunter Sr. fight, it’s worth taking a look. Had some talent, but not sure how seriously he took the sport. There is a video on YouTube of him toying with, then knocking out a young Jimmy Thunder. Check out part 2 of that video.

  • Hunter is an average heavyweight at best and a ducker, didnt want to face Hgrovic because he would of got knocked out.

  • Not long ago Hunter was just a Jr. HW. Hunter has stepped up in fights before, facing Usyk, Povetkin, Kuzman. Hunter at most is a 224 pounder.
