In his sixth world title defence, Deontay Wilder takes on former champion (who he won the title from in 2015), Bermane Stiverne, in a rematch, at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Stiverne, not only 37 years old, but also substantially heavier than in the first fight, and coming off a 2 year layoff, looks poor as soon as the first bell sounds. Wilder looks very fast, sharp, in hand and foot, though it doesn't seem as if he needs these attributes, or many others, due to the lack of a challenge in front of him, but he uses the jab very well, blasting it through the guard if Stiverne, and boxing well behind it for 2 minutes, besides the occasionl right hand which Stiverne doesn't take so well. In the last minute of the round, Wilder lands a great right hand, straight down the middle, it floors Stiverne, who bravely stands up, and in good time, but he fails to recover, as he suffers another 2 quick knockdowns, responding with nothing, almost unable to defend himself. At the very end of the round, refree Arthur Mercante quite rightly calls a halt to the beating, as Stiverne is down heavily, and the referee has to fight to push Wilder back and stop the contest as a highly motivated, under challenged, angry champion swings hayemakers even after his opponent has fallen, but Wilder does follow the referee's demands, not hurting Stiverne, whi is still on the canvas.

Wilder impresses with empathic one round victory, the fight is a complete mismatch, and the lack of conditioning, ability, preparation from Stiverne means it is hard to give Wilder a lot of credit for any sort of a win, nevertheless, the champion puts up a quick, clinical, explosive display, blasting out a former world champion, in one round.

Wilder, as he has done many times, calls out WBA and IBF world heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, seeming as if he is interested in no other fight.

Prediction,

I don't like this match up one bit! It is not Deontay Wilder's fault, when he only has 1 title, he won't risk it being taken away, he will do as he is ordered, and he is certainly not at fault, for criminal Luis Ortiz failing that drug test. Bermane Stiverne was a teak tough, solid, underrated fighter back in his day, he pushed Wilder the first time, was the only man to go the distance, he went 12, I thought he won a couple of rounds, at that point, he was that champion, and he was coming off a good win over Chris Arreola, a man who he had defeated before. Stiverne was understandably underrated at one point, he wasn't unblemished, and he had defeated few decent opponents, and he failed to defeat Charles Davis (17-17) when he fought him in 2009, but Stiverne, I think improved, for whatever reason, came of age, and in 2013-2014, I think he was better than people remember, but now, it is a different story. Stiverne spent 5 days in hospital following his 12 round battering from Wilder, and from then, until now, he has fought once, once in 33 months, taking on Derric Rossy (30-10), 9 months after the Wilder fight, Stiverne lost 3-4 rounds on the scorecards, and suffered an early knockdown, Rossy isn't really a big puncher.

Stiverne hasn't fought for 2 years, that is a very long layoff, it's never good for fighters to be out of the ring for long chunks of time, ideally, he would have had at least 3, maybe 4, could even get 5 fights in, in that time, but no, the very least a 2 year layoff will do is throw a fighter off his rhythm for a couple of rounds, and that is a young fighter with good reflexes, in a fight which he can win with no trouble at all, for example, Mikey Garcia lost 2 rounds to Elio Rojas, and then made it look like a mismatch for 2-3 rounds, but Stiverne is in a very different situation, he will be 37 when he fights Wilder, he's not young, I think Wilder has already ruined his career with the damage he did in the first fight, and Wilder, now, I think is in his prime, he's no less dangerous now than he was 3 years ago, if anything, I think he's more dangerous, I think this fight will go very, very badly for Stiverne.

I think Wilder will destroy Stiverne, stop him brutally, in one round, the only thing I can say about this for Stiverne which isn't worrying is that I don't predict a long beating, because when the fight comes, I think Stiverne will take a short, but clinical beating in there. I can see Wilder starting off quite cautiously, only for 20-30 seconds, trying to set up his opportunity to land a big shot, and after a couple of feints, and maybe a sluggish Stiverne has gestured to throw a punch or two, tried to claim centre ring, Wilder will land a big right hand which rattles the jaw of Stiverne, I think 10-15 seconds later, the fight will be over, with Stiverne, having taken a lot of massive shots whilst trying to stay up, at this point in the fight, flattened on the canvas, and tells referee will be, quite rightly, stopping the fight. I think after a minute or two, Stiverne will be walking, in need of no more medical attention, Wilder will be very relieved to know his opponent is safe, and will at this time, begin to celebrate his victory. I think the punch resistance Stiverne had in the first fight, it will be pretty much gone, and once Wilder has connected, Wilder has connected. I will be shocked if this fight goes past 2 rounds, and I wouldn't be surprised if Wilder was to finish the fight inside 1 minute, I predict it won't go 90 seconds.

This really isn't good preparation for a possible fight against Anthony Joshua next year, I don't think Luis Ortiz would have gone 4 rounds, but at least (assuming I'm right) that would go have been a few decent, valuable rounds, this, well, it is a fight, no matter what happens, for a couple of reasons, it is better than solid inactivity, but nothing really more can be said for it. If we are to be lucky enough to see the heavyweight fight we all want to see next year, and Joshua and Wilder do fight, and Pulev really challenges Joshua, goes 8-9 rounds as I think he will, or even goes past 6, but doesn't see round 8, and challenges Joshua, does a least a portion of what I think he will do in the fight, then that will be much better preparation for Joshua than a fight against Stiverne which doesn't even last a round will be for Wilder.

Well, that was fast.

Wilder did what he had to do to get any respect for this fight considering Stiverne is a total bum. Wilder clearly had zero respect for Stiverne so hopefully people don't overanalyze him getting wild in the process of getting the first round KO

Thought this was pretty interesting. Pointed out several things about this fight, and Wilder himself, that I never noticed.
