Deontay Wilder Proved to be Everything That is Right about Boxing


Deontay exhibited an excellent style in his fight; he fought with fierceness and enthusiasm and proved to be everything that is right about boxing.

The WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder effectively and vigorously defended his title on Saturday with a thunderous one-punch knockout of an overmatched Dominic Breazeale at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Deontay ended the fight in just two minutes and 17 seconds and left the crowd overwhelmed by the swift and violent conclusion.

Deontay foremost rebirth in the heavyweight division

Wilder repeatedly kept saying that he wanted a body bag on his record and would go back down even when told he was wrong to say that. He is a self-promoter though he carried things way too far in the build-up to fight with Breazeale.

He’s engaging and accessible, and it is merely because of the decline in boxing in general and the heavyweight division in particular that the public doesn’t have a better handle on him. He has been frustrated by the frequent negotiations to put together a rematch with Tyson Furyor, more importantly, a bout with IBF-WBA-WBO champion Anthony Joshua.

Deontay has emerged at the head of the renaissance in the heavyweight division. For the first time since the early-to-mid 1990s, there’s a legitimate talent in the division. Wilder is now 41-0-1 with 40 knockouts after his destruction of Breazeale.

How important is boxing on Wilders star power?

One of the most exciting things to watch in boxing is knockouts. Wilder made it more attractive as his punch went longer than six inches. He went beyond the great legendary heavyweight champion Joe Louis who was renowned for throwing six-inch crosses that could knock an opponent out.

Wilder is a star, and he needs to be exposed to more than just the boxing public because his personality is speaking volumes. He said that his fight with Breazeal was a big build up. There had been hatred between the two, but they settled their differences, and to him, that is what sports are all about.

His fight against Joshua will generate a common interest and would be boxing’s most significant event since Floyd Mayweather, and Manny Pacquiao met in 2015.
