Deontay Wilder beats Anthony Joshua to biggest knock-out percentages in boxing history

Deontay Wilder beats Anthony Joshua to biggest knock-out percentages in boxing history

Deontay Wilder put up a fabulous show of a champion, toeing the way of legends with another impressive victory over Cuban boxer Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas on November 23.

Bronze Bomber, his self-given pseudonym, was losing at some point to the 40-year-old Cuban in what was looking like his first career defeat.

But like a true warrior, the WBC heavyweight champ threw in a heavy punch into Ortiz's face and sent him packing off the ring on another resounding knockout- 41 KOs of his entire 43 career fights- to retain his belt.

The victory, which confirmed Wilder the “hardest hitter in boxing,” was hailed by Muhammad Ali’s ex-wife Khalilah Ali who went one step further to label the 34-year-old greatest boxer of all time.

“I know the greatest when I see it. You are the GOAT (greatest of all time) brother. Thank you so much,” the 69-year-old said to Wilder in a FightHype video.
