Heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder posted a challenge on his recently-launched official Facebook fan page last month. “Get my Facebook page up to 5,000 likes,” he said, “and I'll post a video of me fighting one of my fans.”
It was an intriguing promise, and within weeks, Wilder’s goal was reached.
Mission accomplished!! I hit 5k on Facebook. Stay tuned for that video of me fighting a fan.

On Thursday, Wilder made good on his vow, posting a video on his YouTube page. It was certainly a fight against a fan, but it was perhaps not quite the fan that most had expected.
As is clear in the video, the poor fan didn’t stand a chance against Wilder; but in a fight against a 32-0 professional heavyweight boxer, who has won all 32 bouts via knockout, who really does?
