People say boxing is dead because there hasn’t been a premier heavyweight champ since Lennox Lewis (?), but WBC heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder is 39-0 with 38 knockouts and just annihilated Bermane Stiverne with a 32-second 1st round knockout that was reminiscent of an old Mike Tyson fight.
Wilder set down Stiverne 3 times during the near murder, and seemingly connected on every punch. Admittedly, Stiverne is built like a sack of Totino’s Pizza Rolls, but he was 25-2 entering the fight.
This is the best heavyweight knockout, just based on pure ass kicking, in an eternity. Boxing might be dead, but they should check on Bermane Stiverne to make sure he isn’t, too.
