Deontay Wilder: Is Parker Ready For Me? I'm Ready For Him!

BIRMINGHAM, AL. - Undefeated heavyweight world champion Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs) knocked out Gerald "El Gallo Negro" Washington (18-1-1, 12 KOs) in the fifth round of the main event of Premier Boxing Champions on FOX and FOX Deportes at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, AL.
 
In front of a crowd of 12,346 fans, Wilder was able to give his home state crowd another scintillating victory. Although Washington stole some of the early rounds, Wilder's patience paid off as he was able to find his pace and finish Washington in the fifth frame.
 
In the blistering televised opener, Dominic Breazeale (18-1, 16 KOs) stopped previously unbeaten Izuagbe Ugonoh (17-1, 14 KOs). Ugonoh controlled the fight early landing heavy blows to both Breazeale's body and head, but Breazeale was able to compose himself and stormed back to knock out Ugonoh in impressive fashion.

The co-main event featured Jarrett Hurd (20-0, 14 KOs) knocking out Tony Harrison (24-2, 20 KOs) in the ninth round of their contest. 
 
"I knew he was going to come in excited to fight for a world title. I just kept calm and found my rhythm. I really knew he was going to tire out, and when he did I took advantage," Wilder said.
 
"It was all about timing. I'm very smart when it comes to using different tactics in the ring. Fighting here in Alabama is a blessing. The people here show up to support me and I love them for it. I'm always going to support and be here for my Alabama family. To see the crowd's response tonight meant a lot to me.
 
"As I've been saying, I'm looking to unify the division. I think it's critical to have one fighter and one champion, and that's Deontay Wilder. Let's hope Joseph Parker is ready for me because I'm definitely ready for him."

Parker is better than all Wilder has already faced, maybe is just Stiverne en exception.

[QUOTE=Kigali;17455463]None of that is true...and you know it...that's what makes you so pathetic.[/QUOTE] Pretty much everything he said was true.. Wilder was getting out boxed until he got the stoppage. Watch Joshua vs Breazeale. Joshua slips near enough every punch…

[QUOTE=Kigali;17455457]Joshua doesn't have the movement or stamina to beat Wilder.[/QUOTE] I won't argue that. Just noting that Washington is the first fighter Wilder has faced that presents the type of physical challenge Joshua would. Big and athletic.

Wilder did what he had to do to get the W. I didn't judge him to hard because of coming off the layoff and injuries. The next fight is the one I will be really judging him off of and…
