Video: Andre Rozier Reacts To Deontay Wilder's KO of Breazeale

WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder delivered the 40th knockout of his career in devastating fashion Saturday night, sending mandatory challenger Dominic "Trouble" Breazeale flat on his back with a trademark right hand in front of a raucous crowd at Barclays Center, in an event presented by Premier Boxing Champions.

Successfully defending his belt for the ninth time, Wilder joins illustrious company alongside Hall of Famers Joe Louis, Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson and more and becomes the 10th fighter in history to make nine or more consecutive successful heavyweight title defenses.

In the buildup to tonight's world championship bout, Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) repeatedly promised that the fight would not last long.

The towering Tuscaloosa, Ala. native kept his word, scoring the 20th first round knockout of his career and his 15th knockdown as heavyweight world champion. Breazeale (20-2, 18 KOs) was able to withstand Wilder's first early onslaught, but could not beat referee Harvey Dock's 10-count when Wilder connected flush with the most dangerous right hand in boxing later in the opening round.
