Deontay Wilder vs. Bermane Stiverne
|Deontay Wilder||Winner via KO|
From the recent boxing fight between Deontay Wilder and Bermane Stiverne on Saturday (November 4, 2017), reigning WBC heavyweight champion Wilder defeated his opponent via knockout.
Within just the 1st round of the scheduled 12-round WBC Heavyweight Title, Wilder made Stiverne lying on the canvass inside the ring with his powerful punches.
The 32-year-old reigning heavyweight champion defended his belt successfully by knocking out his opponent in the 1st round. Haitian-Canadian Stiverne fell on the canvas thrice and the hard punching and strength of Wilder did not give him any chance to survive the fight.
“So much frustration, it just seemed like my career, it’s been crazy. so many guys using PEDs,” said the defending champion as quoted by the news online. “I just want to prove that I am the best. I know I am the best, but I wanna prove I am the best,” he added.
The 39-year-old Stiverne went on break for almost two years and his skills went down, which is evident during the fight on Saturday night held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. His movement is too slow and Wilder easily caught him in the rope with his powerful punches.
The American heavyweight champion whom they recognized as “The Bronze Bomber” now improved his professional boxing record to 39-0 (38 wins via KO). He left Stiverne or “B. Ware” lying on the canvas and hanging on the rope after a huge left hook punch that knocked him down.
Bermane Stiverne current professional boxing record is 25-3-1 (21 wins via KO).
In 2015, both fighters already faced with each other and Wilder took home the championship belt that time. He won via 12-round decision and so this rematch proved that Wilder is more deserving with his convincing win.
