This fight has been brewing for a while, ever since they had a hotel bust up last year Dominic Breazeale has wanted a shot at Deontay Wilder. With Breazeale seemingly jumping the queue ahead of Dillian Whyte who had been in the number 1 position for over 1 year.

With Wilder coming off the controversial draw with Tyson Fury where he was seemingly lucky to keep hold of his title, you get a feeling he will want to try and impress in this fight live in New York. With Breazeale’s last bout also in December at this same venue vs Carlos Negron via 9th round ko.

With both being ex olympians you would hazard a guess this may well be a fight between two highly skilled boxers, but neither like to go about the professional game this way which is why this fight is very intriguing. With Wilder having managed to put every opponent he has faced onto the canvas and Breazeale always involved in fan friendly fights including taking Anthony Joshua 7 round before being stopped in 2016, you can forgive me in thinking this one will not see the final bell.

  • Wilder was an olympic bronze medalist in 2008 in Beijing.

The Verdict

Wanting to stamp his mark that he is still as he believes number 1 heavyweight in the division I can see Wilder wanting to do a better job than Joshua did in 2016 in stopping Breazeale in the 7th round.

Unlike the Fury fight where Wilder throughout most of the fight was frustrated in not being able to land much, in this bout that I feel will not be a problem with Breazeale not the hardest target to land on.

I am looking at Wilder to take maybe 1 or 2 rounds scoping out his opponent and then stepping it up from rounds 3 or 4 eventually stopping Breazeale between rounds 4 and 6. But do not be surprised in Wilder is also put down but still manages to win.
