Deontay Wilder Knocked Dominic Breazeale The F*ck Out, Twitter Reacts

Deontay Wilder Knocked Dominic Breazeale The F*ck Out, Twitter Reacts

Joshua and Wilder have spent the past year engaged in very tense, very public negotiations for a unification fight, with the last round ending when Wilder turned down a four-fight deal from streaming service DAZN that would have guaranteed him two fights with Joshua-and $120 million for his trouble.

Wilder says the power is real and it is something he does not really have to train for.

While Wilder didn't cause that kind of damage, he nonetheless obliterated Breazeale with a massive right hand for a violent first-round knockout victory before an announced crowd of 13,181 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Breazeale attempted to get to his feet, but referee Harvey Dock counted him out at 2 minutes, 17 seconds.

It prompted Showtime commentator Mauro Ranallo to exclaim: "Wilder hit Breazeale so hard they are feeling it in Brazil!"

And with the last one, Breazeale's body language crumpled.

And Wilder also told Showtime that he plans on facing Tyson Fury in a world title rematch after their draw a year ago.

Fury meanwhile took to Instagram on Sunday to congratulate Wilder while taunting fellow Briton Joshua.

He didn't come close to doing that, but he ended the fight as emphatically as he could.

"Listen, Wilder had a lot of success and is a formidable fighter, but coming up against Tyson Fury is another ballgame".

An immediate rematch was expected before Fury surprisingly went another route.

United Nations concerned about rising US-Iran rhetoric
In a Fox News interview on Sunday, Trump said he was not seeking a conflict with Iran vowed not to let it develop nuclear weapons. He said that the military was investigating the cause but that the rocket was believed to have been fired from east Baghdad.

"I understand what Tyson Fury did", Wilder said.

"I don't want to get into knocking Eddie [Hearn - Joshua's promoter], but the thing is, we don't need the talk in the press, this silliness". But the rematch will happen, like all these other fights will happen.

"The great thing about this is all these fights are in discussion, no doors are closed, all teams, all parties that are involved are talking and that's the great thing about it", Wilder told reporters.

"That fight will happen".

It's why he's one of the most compelling figures in the sport.

The Bronze Bomber is the most fearsome, most destructive puncher in the heavyweight division. But he should certainly be a believer now. He nailed Breazeale with a few big shots that backed up the challenger into the corner. "I know for sure it's going to be fireworks from the opening bell, and there's going to be a fantastic finish", Breazeale said. "I'll be back and go for the heavyweight title again".

Wilder has won 39 of his 40 career fights through knockout, while Breazeale is 18 for 20.

"He has taken care of business, now AJ needs to do the same against Ruiz Jr at Madison Square Garden on June 1".

Wilder had said in the pre-fight build-up that he wanted to kill Breazeale, and several times said he wanted a body bag on his record. His record now stands at an impressive 41-0-1 with 40 knockouts.

He looked like a picture of peace as he carried his young daughter into the arena about three hours earlier, but was back to making his case as boxing's baddest man once the fighting started.
