Wilder KOs Breazeale to defend WBC heavyweight belt

American boxer Deontay Wilder has emphatically returned to the win column, knocking out compatriot Dominic Breazeale with an overpowering first-round right hand to defend his WBC heavyweight title.

Wilder hurt Breazeale with a right to the head early in their fight at Barclays Center in New York, but the challenger recovered from that early onslaught.

Yet there was no coming back from the right later in the round that immediately dropped Breazeale, who was trying to get up as referee Harvey Dock counted him out at 2:17 of the round.

Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KOs) was coming off his draw against Tyson Fury in December, the first fight of his pro career that wasn’t a victory.
