Deontay Wilder & Gerald Washington fought on Fox Saturday night
Boxing is having somewhat of a resurgence in the past year or so. There have been a lot of quality fights take place, and the action has been terrific. WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder had the chance to defend his crown on a big stage Saturday night. As he and Gerald Washington fought for a national television audience on FOX in primetime.
Deontay Wilder has a sledgehammer where most people find their right hand. If he lands a clean right hand, nobody can withstand it. It took him five rounds last night to unleash said hammer on challenger Gerald Washington, winning the fight when the referee was forced to step in and stop the madness. Wilder was nervous to unleash his right hand, as this was the first fight he’s had since breaking that hand and tearing his right bicep against Chris Arreola.
Wilder moves to 38-0 with 37 knockouts. Washington tasted defeat for the first time, falling to 18-1 as a professional.
