Deontay Wilder.

BROOKYLN, NY (WBRC) - WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder said for weeks he was going to knock out Dominic Breazeale, and on Saturday he did.

The Tuscaloosa native’s ninth title defense ended in the the first round to extend his record to 41-0-1.

Saturday’s win is Wilder’s first fight since earning a draw against Tyson Fury in December. The lead-up to the fight included a lot of trash talk from Wilder, including some comments being considered controversial.
