Watch: Deontay Wilder destroys Dominic Breazeale with lethal right hand
Deontay Wilder is a killer in the ring and showed it yet again on Saturday.
Wilder knocked out Dominic Breazeale just over two minutes into their WBC heavyweight title fight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. He nailed Breazeale with a few big shots that backed up the challenger into the corner. Breazeale had to go into a clinch just to stop Wilder. Not long after the referee separated the two, Wilder landed his crushing right hand that ended the fight:

Wilder is a special, special fighter. You just don’t come across boxers with that type of punching power very often — someone who can knock you out with one punch.
Breazeale just missed making the 10-count. The knockout marked the 40th of Wilder’s career, the 20th coming in the first round. He has won all but one of his fights by knockout, with no losses. That was just Breazeale’s second defeat.
