Deontay Wilder: So Many Guys Ducking Me, So Many Using PEDs

Deontay Wilder destroyed Bermane Stiverne by knocking out the out-of-shape challenger with one second left in the opening round to retain his WBC heavyweight championship on Saturday.

The 32-year-old Wilder delivered an explosive performance as he floored Stiverne two times in the opening round before finishing him off with a punishing right-left to the head as the defenceless Canadian was pinned against the ropes.

Stiverne then slumped to the canvas and stayed motionless for some time before being helped up and into a chair where he was examined by the ring doctor at the Barclays Center arena in New York.

"I know I am the best. I just want to prove that I am the best," said Wilder, who has 39 wins and 38 knockouts. "I got the heart of a lion. I am the king."

Wilder was the heavy favourite going into this the sixth defence of his heavyweight title.

It was his second win over the 39-year-old former champ Stiverne who came into the rematch 15 pounds heavier and having fought just once since losing the belt to Wilder in January 2015. He won the first fight with a one-sided unanimous victory.

The Canadian earned another crack at Wilder in September, taking the rematch on short notice after the scheduled challenger, Luis Ortiz, of Cuba, failed a doping test.

"So much frustration. Man .... it just seems like my career has been crazy. So many guys ducking me and so many guys using PEDs," said Wilder.

Wilder was so confident that he would win again that he vowed to retire if he lost.

Stiverne blamed health issues for his failure to muster much resistance to Wilder's onslaught in their first meeting but the beefy boxer's his biggest mistake the second time around appeared to be spending too much time around the buffet table.

Still Wilder said he respected Stiverne's willingness to accept the challenge.

"It took lot of courage to step in ring with someone like me. He was a clean fighter and he did the best he could," Wilder said.

[QUOTE=Robbie Barrett;18185909]It was 3 and Wilder keeps the US revenue too. Which puts it over 4.[/QUOTE] The initial offer back in June was 3. It's the current offer that is 4. The next offer will be 5. Haymon isn't stupid.…

I think Wilder should fight Breazeale now. Joshua can fight Parker in a meantime. Wilder is not ready for AJ; not yet. he is at least 2 fights away.

[QUOTE=genrick;18186536]I don't even get your logic. Beontay fights a bum for a lot less. Yet he avoids a fight which you people say won't do anything to his career. What did the Stiverne 2 did for his career? It certainly…
