Wilder Retains WBC Heavyweight Title With Brutal First Round KO

Fury Coach: Wilder Seems Psychologically Damaged After Tyson Fight

I would just like to say well done to Deontay Wilder in knocking out Dominic Breazeale.

He stunned Breazeale with a stiff right hand and backed him into the corner, but Breazeale came back and clipped the defending champion with a right hand over the top that had him momentarily backing away.

Wilder, who won the bronze medal for the United States at the 2008 Olympic Games, moved up the all-time heavyweight defence list and joined four iconic champions who also made nine straight defences: Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier, Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis.

So Wilder returns his attention to Anthony Joshua, with whom he has repeatedly failed to reach agreement and who has his own interim defence, against American-Mexican slugger Andy Ruiz Jr, in New York's Madison Square Garden on June 1. It's the heavyweight division so there's going to big shots from guys with power.

He said his incontestable victory that: "Everything just came out of me tonight".

"I don't want this to be a (Lennox) Lewis and (Riddick) Bowe situation". Later that night, there was a confrontation between the fighters and their teams at the fight hotel, and Breazeale alleged that Wilder's younger brother, Marsellos, had punched him in the head from behind. 'These fights will happen, ' insists Wilder. The great thing is all these fights are in discussion.

Threats of violence are a stock-in-trade part of promoting fights, but Wilder's gruesome pre-fight comments were condemned by many in the sport as going too far.


"That fight will happen".

"There's been a lot of animosity and a lot of words that were said and it just came out of me tonight. I'll be back and go for the heavyweight title again".

Not only was the finish one of the most violent things you'll see this year, it also threw gasoline on the heavyweight division fire as fans clamor for Wilder, Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury to eventually face one another.

Deontay Wilder made it look easy in his first round match on Saturday.

"The big fights will happen the way we all benefit".

Should Wilder prove unable to draw fights with Fury or Joshua in 2019 due to political and network entanglements, a rematch against Cuban slugger Luis Ortiz could be likely for the fall. Dillian Whyte, you'll get it as well. Wilder told Gray he didn't believe Fury was necessarily ducking the idea of getting back into the ring with the champion, who knocked him down twice in the latter rounds of their bout but could not put him away.
