Wilder knocks Breazeale out in first round, eyes Joshua fight

Deontay Wilder knocked out Dominic Breazeale in one round, to retain his WBC heavyweight crown, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn in the early hours of Sunday.

Wilder landed a huge right hand to stop Breazeale with his 20th first-round KO.

The American’s win keeps alive a potential undisputed unification showdown with three-belt champion Anthony Joshua.

“The power is real, it’s something that I don’t have to really train for.

“I think it will happen. It’s going to happen. I believe in all my heart it will happen,” Wilder told ringside reporters after the bout.
