Deontay Wilder Defends Heavyweight Title with 5th-Round KO of Gerald Washington
Deontay Wilder once again showed off his power in a fifth-round knockout of Gerald Washington on Saturday night.
The reigning WBC Heavyweight Champion defended his title against the undefeated challenger in front of a home crowd in Birmingham. It was Wilder's first fight since breaking his hand and tearing his bicep in a win over Chris Arreola.
The fight began a bit slow for Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs) but he showed off his destructive power midway through the fight to claim another victory.
After the fight, Wilder talked about his performance with the media.
