BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Deontay Wilder sported a three-piece suit, bow tie and shades to the pre-fight news conference. Chris Arreola wore T-shirt, jean shorts and a chip on his shoulder.The contrast in styles also emphasized their disparate situations. Wilder is a big favorite going into the fourth defense of his WBC heavyweight title Saturday night and third in his home state while Arreola is hoping to cash in on an unexpected opportunity. Its a fight that wasnt supposed to happen.Wilders scheduled fight in Russia with mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin fell through in May when Povetkin tested positive for the banned substance meldonium. Instead, Wilder (36-0, 35 knockouts) was left to file a breach of contract suit seeking at least $5 million and to find another opponent on relatively short notice.We needed a guy that was going to come and fight, he said. We needed a guy that wasnt going to come and make excuses. He may still make excuses at the end talking about weight. But we mainly needed a guy that was going to come and give the people of Alabama a show, and worldwide.Theres no other guy that we could have had that was going to give me the fight that I was looking for out of a fighter than Chris Arreola. Thats why we chose him.Wilder said he needed a quick fight after being down following cancellation of the Povetkin fight. This one is part of the Premier Boxing Champions series.I cant wait because Ive been wanting to pound something, he said. Ive been wanting to pound something since May. I got teased a little bit .I dont like to be teased. I got teased a little bit and now its time.Arreola (36-4-1, 31 KOs) is trying to profit from Vegas odds that put Wilder in the neighborhood of a 30-1 favorite. In previous title shots, he lost to Vitali Klitschko and Bermane Stiverne, who Wilder beat to claim a piece of the heavyweight title in January 2015.I told my wife before she got here to make sure she gave $1,000 to one of my cousins to go put at least $1,000 on myself, Arreola said. Thats $30,000. Ill take that all day every day.To me, thats very disrespectful. Extremely disrespectful. Those are almost Buster Davis odds.Douglas was a huge underdog when he knocked out previously unbeaten Mike Tyson in 1990.The 6-foot-7 Wilder has knocked out every opponent except Stiverne, but his three title defenses have all gone at least into the ninth. Wilder is coming off a ninth-round knockout of Artur Szpilka in January.The 6-3 Arreola hasnt fought since December, when he won a split decision over Travis Kauffman. It was declared a no contest because Arreola tested positive for marijuana.Arreola freely acknowledges he hasnt earned this title shot, but is hoping to catch Wilder looking ahead to possible bouts with unbeaten Anthony Joshua or Tyson Fury, who is awaiting a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko. Promoter Lou DiBella calls Arreola a scary man because he has nothing to lose. Arreola is seeking to become the first fighter of Mexican heritage to win a piece of the heavyweight championship.Im a sleeping giant because everybodys overlooking me, Arreola said. Wilder was overlooking me. Wilders already thinking about his next fight. Hes talking about fighting the IBF champion (Joshua). Hes talking about fighting Tyson Fury. Im first. Youve got to remember, Im first. Im here. Im a heavyweight to reckon with.The co-main event features welterweights Sammy Vasquez (21-0, 15 KOs) against 2008 Olympic gold medalist Felix Diaz (17-1, 8 KOs) of the Dominican Republic.

Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win. Quick stopped 27 shots in his return from a 24-game injury absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.Debutant Haseeb Hameed looks right at home at Test level, says Nasser Hussain. The teenage opener struck his maiden England half-century on day four of the first Test against India, helping the tourists to 114-0 at stumps - an overall lead of 163. The best of the action of the fourth day of the first Test The 19-year-old followed his impressive first-innings 31 with an unbeaten 62 off 116 balls with one six and five fours - skipper Alastair Cook contributing 46no to the stand - and Hussain said the knocks had helped to transform pre-Test perceptions about Hameeds game. Its a brilliant, brilliant start from the young man, said the former England skipper.We all had Hameed down as a bit of a blocker - someone who would go into his shell - so there was a bit of concern about whether the combination of Hameed and Cook would be able to get England off to a flying start.Instead they went after India. They played beautifully - the tempo of the partnership was superb.Hameeds footwork is well-drilled. He comes from a family that has cricket in its blood; he was born with a cricket bat in his hand. Nasser Hussain analyses Haseeb Hameeds first Test innings. Weve seen him around the traps here and he walks around as if he belongs on this stage. Hes not meek, quiet and under the shadow of all thhe senior players.ddddddddddddHis demeanour suggests this is my stage, Im going to show you what Im going to do and he did.He popped down the pitch to Ravindra Jadeja, who is not the easiest bowler to do that to, and smashed him over the top for six; when mid-off went back, he pushed him for one.He also went down the track to Ravichandran Ashwin and pushed through the off-side. He did get in a bit of discomfort when Ashwin attacked from around the wicket but on this pitch you are occasionally going to struggle.India made a decent fist of responding to Englands first-innings score of 537, but ultimately fell 49 runs short despite 70 from Ravi Ashwin to finish on 488 as Adil Rashid returned 4-114. England spinner Adil Rashid heaps praise on spin coach Saqlain Mushtaq The leg-spinners performance stood out - Sky Sports pundit Sir Ian Botham among several to say it was the best Rashid has bowled in an England shirt - but Hussain was also quick to praise the combined impact of the visiting attack.It sounds odd to say that England bowled brilliantly when the opposition get 480 but I can barely remember a period where they werent in control of the run-rate, said Hussain.Rashid was so good in this innings; it was an excellent effort all round from England. Although he ended up wicketless, Chris Woakes was absolutely exceptional. It set the tone and Hameed and Cook continued the momentum.
