Deontay Wilder in Scary First Round KO of Liakhovich

Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California - Deontay Wilder (29-0, 29KOs) demolished former WBO heavyweight champion Sergei Liakhovich (25-6, 16KOs) in less than two minutes when his right hand crushed Liakhovich. The former champ went down and started shaking on the floor as the referee waved things off and called in the medical team.

In a battle of undefeated super featherweights,  Francisco Vargas (17-0-1, 13KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Brandon Bennett (16-1, 7KOs). The scores were 99-91, 99-90 and 98-92. Vargas cut above left eye in the fifth round from a head clash, but he wasn't too affected by the injury. He was very aggressive and landed the harder shots, outworking Bennett in the majority of the rounds.

Jermall Charlo (15-0, 11KOs) stopped Antwone Smith (23-5-1, 12KOs) in the second round. Charlo controlled the fight with his jab and then ripped Smith to the head with two right hands in the second to send him down. Smith got up on very unsteady legs, which made the referee wave off the contest.

Featherweight contender Gary Russell Jr. (24-0, 13KOs) stayed busy with a ten round unanimous decision over Juan Ruiz (23-12). The scores were 100-90 across the board.

we know he can BANG... But can he take a BANG? That will be the question.

I thought he was actually going to box the first rounds like they said by the way he came out trying to flex his jab, I didn't expect White Wolf to go down that fast especially the way he did.

Impressive win against a faded former world champion. Liahkovich has always been durable but wilder destroyed him. He didn't look awkward like the harrison fight. Farhood is right when he said he still needs round... Dominick guinn would be a…
