Deontay Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) added yet another violent finish to his career highlight reel with a brutal one-punch knockout at 2:17 of Round 1 against Dominic Breazeale. Wilder, 33, made the ninth defense of the WBC title he originally captured in 2015.
“The Bronze Bomber” reminded reporters and fans that he and Joshua eventually will settle this well-documented dispute in the ring.
“You know, we can compare all we want,” Wilder said during the post-fight press conference. “But, you know, at the end of the day, when both of us get in the ring, you don’t know what’s gonna happen. I can’t say that I’m gonna knock him out. I can’t say he’s gonna knock me out. We just have to see when that time comes, and see what happens.”
