Deontay Wilder Lifts WBC Heavyweight Crown            Latest
US Olympian, Deontay Wilder answered his critics last night with a twelve round decision over Bermain Stiverne at the MGM Grand. Wilder who had never gone four rounds previously dominated from the outside with his jab as the Haitian-Canadian struggled to get close enough to unload. In the third, the Bronze Bomber Wilder opened with his trademark barrage. Stiverne weathered the worst of it, but was always on the backfoot from the taller man's busy jabs. Granite chinned Stiverne clipped Wilder in the sixth, but Wilder opened up again in the seventh and showed ring smarts to cruise to a unanimous verdict. The judges saw it 119-108, 118-109 with Craig Metcalf having it a 120-108 shutout. Heavyweight News had it 118-110 to the new WBC champion. "I'm just happy to bring this belt back to America officially" said the Alabama man, who became the first US heavyweight champion since Shannon Briggs in 2006. "I just wanted to show the world what Deontay Wilder was capable of and I think I proved that tonight." he added.
