Scott Says Deontay Wilder's Left Hook Left Him Senseless

Bayamon, Puerto Rico - Deontay "Bronx Bomber" Wilder (31-0, 31 KOs) dazzled the crowd with a powerful first round knockout over Malik "King" Scott (36-2-1, 13 KOs). The knockout, which came at 1:36 of the round, was the result of a quick left-right combination that sent Scott crashing to the canvas and unable to answer the 10-count.

After the fight, Wilder spoke with Grayabout his performance. "I've got power. I've got natural power. This is something that you can't buy. This is something that you can't enhance and put in your body. This is all natural pure Alabama power. The left hand was right to the temple, to the head, and that is a soft spot. My power is crazy. I go through the gloves. Even though he had his gloves, there is nothing stopping that. Even though it went through his glove it still hurts."

When asked if he is ready to take a step up and fight for a heavyweight title despite having not faced the top fighters in the division, Wilder responded, "All the testing is done in the gym. I bust my butt off in the gym to come here and perform for all the people and I make it look easy. I don't care if I don't go past four rounds or solve all the questions that people have about me. I have one mission and it is to unify all the heavyweight belts."

After the fight Scott, upset by his performance, said, "I got caught. I don't really remember what happened because I never saw the shot coming. I know he caught me with the left hook. I am so disappointed. I trained really hard. It is just awful.

I didn't know the "senseless" look was looking straight up at your opponent with crystal clear eyes.

[QUOTE=Cuban Linx;14332674]Ill admit, Wilder has really freakish power and he's probably one of the top 3 quickest heavyweights. But I'd like to see him get some rounds under his belt. Maybe there will be someone in the future who can…
