Deontay Wilder

.

Deontay Wilder defended his World Boxing Council heavyweight title belt by knocking out challenger Dominic Breazeale with a monstrous right-hand punch in the first round of their bout Saturday night.

The fight lasted a little over two minutes before Wilder connected with the winning blow. With the win, Wilder improved to 41-0-1 in his career. He also recorded his 40th knockout.

Wilder’s latest knockout against Breazeale was seen by a crowd of 13,181 fans in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

The win was a bounce back performance of sorts for Wilder, whose previous fight was a draw against Tyson Fury last December.
