DEONTAY WILDER thundered through Dominic Breazeale in less than one round to score his ninth consecutive defence of the WBC heavyweight title. Afterwards he insisted unification with Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBF and IBF belts, will happen.

The “Bronze Bomber” oozed violence inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. His right hand rocketed over his left, which had expertly prodded Breazeale’s jaw into position, and sent the mandatory challenger to the canvas.

Breazeale somehow managed to get to his feet as referee Harvey Dock reached 10 but he stumbled back into the ropes. The fight was over at a mere 2-17.
