WBC heavyweight champion of the world Deontay Wilder is waking up around now in Las Vegas to another fine knockout victory.
Every fight that goes by his media profile has steadily gone up.
Bit by bit but particularly in the last year following his fight with Tyson Fury.
A rematch he has now set up emphatically with a highlight reel right hand knockout this weekend over vanquished foe Luis Ortiz.
Following the fight Deontay Wilder told the world’s media:
“They have to be perfect for thirty-six minutes. I only have to be perfect for two seconds.”
He probably couldn’t have hit the nail on the head any better himself.
The thing is, while he’s a decent boxer (underestimated by many in the skills department) all he needs is just one single punch during the course of twelve three minute rounds in a championship fight to get the win.
When you think about how many seconds are in that in total — that gives Wilder such a huge advantage over everyone else really.
You’d have to say he hits harder than anyone in the division to the point where he can knock any of his competitors out in the blink of an eye.
He could be having an awful fight, with nothing going his way, and that almost magical power can be summoned upon at any time.
Following the fight many are now calling Wilder the biggest puncher in the history of boxing.
Time will tell if he can keep this incredible knockout streak going.
