Deontay Wilder still has his equaliser

Returning from nasty hand and arm injuries, Deontay Wilder retained his WBC title against Gerald Washington. It was a flawed performance, but the unbeaten giant ultimately got the job done. Washington proved more difficult than advertised, winning several of the early rounds and giving Wilder plenty to think about. Then, Wilder found a home for his vaunted right hand and ended things in the fifth. Rough around the edges, Wilder isn’t everybody’s cup of tea but he’s definitely exciting and, once again, he violently removed any chances of an upset.
