Deontay Wilder outpoints Bermane Stiverne to win WBC Heavyweight title

The biggest upset may have been that it went the distance.

Last night, Deontay Wilder scored a unanimous decision victory over Bermane Stiverne to capture the WBC Heavyweight title. This is the first time a Heavyweight title belt has found itself in the United States since Shannon Briggs scored a last-gasp twelfth round knockout over Siarhei Liakhovich to win the WBO Heavyweight title in 2006. Briggs would lose the title in his next fight against overwhelming Russian opponent Sultan Ibragimov. Wilder looked well beyond such a mediocre reign if the Stiverne fight was an indicator.

You’ll never hear of Wilder after this fight roars Stiverne

Heavyweight world champion Bermane Stiverne has vowed to make Deontay Wilder a forgotten man by defeating the knockout king this weekend.

The pair clash at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in what is one of the most highly-anticipated heavyweight bouts in years, with Haitian hitman Stiverne promising to send the 29-year-old Wilder into the wilderness.

The bout, live and exclusive on BoxNation, is predicted to be the American’s toughest test to date with Stiverne in no doubts that he will retain his WBC belt and put an end to the hype surrounding the charismatic Wilder.

The 6′ 2″, 248-pound Stiverne had a Michigan State football scholarship to play linebacker for the Spartans, but he blew-out his knee midway through his freshman year (1997) during a practice session.
