Deontay Wilder Could Be Ringside For Joshua vs. Ruiz at MSG

Deontay Wilder brutally knocked out Dominic Breazeale in the first round of their grudge match Saturday night to retain his World Boxing Council heavyweight world title.

Wilder, who has one of the most destructive right hands in heavyweight history, floored the challenger with a one-punch knockout with 43 seconds left in the opening round.

Wilder swarmed Breazeale from the opening bell, hurting him with a straight right hand then finishing him off later in the round with the devastating right to the chin that was set up by a left jab.

Breazeale lay on his back, then got up at the count of 10 as the referee waved it off.

Wilder, 33, improved to 41-0-1 with 40 KOs in making the ninth defence of his title against heavy underdog Breazeale at the Barclays Center arena in Brooklyn, New York.

Breazeale, who had lost just one previous fight to Anthony Joshua, dropped to 20-2 with 18 KOs.

There was bad blood between the two heading into the fight with the buildup marked by a series of macabre threats from Wilder, who had spoken of his willingness to cause a fatality in the ring.

Threats of violence are a stock-in-trade part of promoting fights, but Wilder's gruesome pre-fight comments were condemned by many in the sport as going too far.

Wilder dropped a hint that he might be ringside on June 1, when heavyweight rival Anthony Joshua defends the WBA, IBO, IBF, WBO world titles against Andy Ruiz at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Wilder vs. Joshua is arguably the biggest fight in the sport.  

"I've got a lot of obligations to fulfil," said Wilder.

"But if that date is open for me you may see Deontay Wilder there.

"When it's a good scrap, a good fight that people want to see, you might find me there. I can't say right now, I can't' promise you that but when that time comes we'll see what happens."

[QUOTE=OgTripleOg;19755716]Eddie won’t be able to get a restraining order on wilder this time. Welcome to America *****es[/QUOTE] dumb comment, you think there will be criminal proceedings because Wilder out of nowhere started shouting last year he's being ducked? Any judge…

This is propaganda. He has a fight with Ortiz lined up, he's not going to go to the fight or confront AJ afterwards.
