Alabama head coach Nick Saban recorded a video throwing his support behind undefeated heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder. The 33-year-old Tuscaloosa native is taking on Tyson Fury on Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Wilder has 40-0 record with 39 of them coming by way of the knockout.

Saban and Alabama have a big day planned on Saturday as well. They’re taking on Georgia in the SEC Championship game.
If the Crimson Tide ends up losing the game we can point to the 5 or 10 minutes it took for Saban to record this video as the reason. It’s sad when an undefeated team loses focus so close to a perfect season.
