Who are Deontay Wilder’s favorite victims?
5. Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz
These two giants went at each other with the WBC heavyweight title on the line. Wilder vs Ortiz I took place at the Barclays Center in New York City on March 3, 2018. This fight still gives Ortiz nightmares. Wilder really showcased some crazy power and speed in this fight as he put Ortiz on the floor for good in the 10th round. A huge stunning and clean right hand followed by a left and another powerful right hand saw Ortiz fail to hold his ground and collapse. This KO is one of the most satisfying KOs in Wilder’s career.
4. Deontay Wilder vs Bermane Stiverne II
Barclays Center has always been good to Wilder. The rematch against Bermane Stiverne saw the KO artist destroy his opponent in a WBC heavyweight world title rematch. Another highlight KO reel for Wilder as he threw a huge windmill punch followed by an uppercut and continuous flurry of bombs to see Stiverne on the floor. The sight of Bermane while going down had the entire arena in shock rather than excited for Wilder.
3. Deontay Wilder vs Luis Ortiz II
In 2019, Ortiz came out seeking revenge at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The well-skilled Ortiz despite being an underdog was determined to prove a point to the entire world after his disastrous KO loss at his first meeting with the American KO artist. Things didn’t go the Cuban’s way this time either as Wilder defeated Ortiz via a seventh-round knockout to retain his WBC title.
2. Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale
This was one of Deontay’s scariest knockouts of all time. The heavyweight champion wanted to defend his belt in this fight and go for the potential belt unifier against Anthony Joshua. In this fight, Breazeale actually started out well in the beginning but it took only two minutes seventeen seconds for “The Bronze Bomber” to get his 40th knockout win. This KO was so scary to watch the entire crowd actually showed some concern before celebrating Wilder’s win.
1. Deontay Wilder vs Artur Szpilka
If you are a boxing fan, you can’t not know about this legendary KO. One punch is all it took for Deontay to show the world, the kind of power he had in 2016. The fight was starting to catch heat from both ends and both the fighters held their own ground by playing to their strengths. It was all even for Artur until he met the right hand of Deontay. That sure did the deal for that fight in the ninth round. This is considered the best KO of Deontay to date.
