Deontay Wilder wins in 26 seconds

Phil Jay 26/05/2012

Highly-rated American heavyweight Deontay Wilder made it 22 knockouts from 22 wins without with the thirteenth first round triumph of his career when he blew out Jesse Oltmanns in just 26 seconds last night in Cancun.

The Alabama fighter, who won a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics, is making waves in the top division with hid outstanding record and seems ready to step up a level after punishing yet another fringe contender.

Still only 26, Wilder has plenty of time to gain the experience to eventually challenge for a world title, but constantly blowing out his opponents early will do him no good in the long term.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ overwhelmed Oltmanns from the first bell and as soon as the 36 year-old felt the younger fighter’s power, the bout was over and Wilder now moves on to face Owen Beck on June 23 in his hometown.
