WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (41-0-1) is known for the spectacular power he posses in his right hand.
This past Saturday night “The Bronze Bomber” dismantled his fellow countryman Dominic Breazeale in the 1st round, delivering an astonishing KO which sparked the old debate who is the most powerful heavyweight – him or WBO, IBF and WBA “Super” champion Anthony Joshua (22-0).
Three years ago “AJ” also KO’d Breazeale in their world title fight, but the Brit needed 7 rounds to get the job done.
When the American champ was asked to compare the two fights, here’s what he had to say:
“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.”
“I mean, it’s hard,” Wilder said.
“You know, when you’re in boxing we always say styles make fights. And it’s so true. You know, certain styles may not complement other styles. And Breazeale’s style complements mines. Any guy that gets in the ring and can’t move their head or are not flexible, you know, it’s perfect for me. You know, because I’m gonna set you up and I’m faster than what people think. You know, people think, ‘Oh, he just got a right hand, so you stay away from that.’ You know, but when I settle myself down and really use my intelligence in the ring, magic happens. And tonight, I displayed that.”
