Boxing media unite in praise for Deontay Wilder who targets Tyson Fury and then Wladimir Klitschko

The wait is finally over.

America has its first world heavyweight champion since 2007 as Deontay Wilder out-boxed, out-punched and dominated Bermane Stiverne over 12 rounds to capture the WBC title in front of 8,453 at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Wilder had so many questions beforehand to answer as the media and fans picked holes in his record of 32-0 (32). His biggest wins were against nearly men Audley Harrison and Malik Scott, so the questions were valid even though America’s hope entered as a betting favourite.
