Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38) put any hopes that Bermane Stiverne (25-3-1)had at winning to its final resting place. After some pretty entertaining press conferences and war of words that even had me thinking Stiverne had a chance at a victory, the “Bronze Bomber” shut it down.
Bermane Stiverne threw 0 punches and landed 0 punches. Deontay dominated like a new generation Mike Tyson. Stiverne was dropped twice before getting knocked out cold. You almost had to feel sorry for the guy.
It seemed as if Wilder wanted to prove that he is the best heavyweight out there, and he delivered that statement flawlessly with the first round KO (whether it was Stiverne or not) and with flurries of words that had a Muhammad Ali jingle to it.
Deontay Wilder had called out British Heavyweight Super Star Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20) after the fight addressing him as, Anthony “Juicing” Joshua. The Alabama native went on to say he would fight him in his native country of England.
Wilder could have some time to make the press rounds and get his name out there even more as Joshua is at super star level bringing in a massive 70,000+ spectators to watch him fight a backup.
UPDATE: It was reported that Bermane Stiverne has said he is returning to boxing and dedicating himself 100% following his embarrassing loss last Saturday.
