Deontay Wilder destroyed Bermane Stiverne By KO
Undefeated champ Deontay Wilder destroyed Bermane Stiverne by knocking out the out-of-shape challenger with one second left in the opening round to retain his WBC heavyweight championship on Saturday.
The 32-year-old Wilder conveyed an unstable execution as he amazed Stiverne two times in the opening round before completing him off with a rebuffing right-left to the head as the vulnerable Canadian was stuck against the ropes. DJ Hustle
Stiverne at that point drooped to the canvas and remained unmoving for quite a while before being increased and into a seat where he was analyzed by the ring specialist at the Barclays Center field in New York.
“I know I am the best. I simply need to demonstrate that I am the best,” said Wilder, who has 39 wins and 38 knockouts. “I got the core of a lion. I am the King.”
Wilder was the heavy favourite going into this the sixth defence of his heavyweight title.
It was his second win over the 39-year-old former champ Stiverne who came into the rematch 15 pounds heavier and having fought just once since losing the belt to Wilder in January 2015.
He won the first fight with a one-sided unanimous victory and the rematch was even easier.
On Saturday, he flattened Stiverne with 45 seconds left in the first round with a left followed by a straight right that landed flush on the face of the Haitian-born challenger.
Only 20 seconds after the fact, he sent Stiverne back to the canvas with a substantial right hand that landed like a club to the side of the head.
At this point Wilder was having his way with Stiverne as he fixed the triumph with a four-punch blend that sent Stiverne unadroitly once more into the ropes as ref Arthur Mercante quickly endeavored to mediate and stop the assault.
