Deontay Wilder vs. Dominic Breazeale

12 rounds, for Wilder's WBC heavyweight title

Deontay Wilder and Dominic Breazeale has a lot of animosity between them and are going in to this fight with mean intentions. The facts have not changed. Deontay Wilder is the better boxer. He is much faster. He punches harder. There really is no distinct area where Breazeale has the advantage. Even the experience criteria goes to Wilder and he is the World Champion. Breazeale has a lot of will and that can help you a long the way. He also has a new trainer in Virgil Hunter and you can expect a tad more defensive skills and maybe a little more head movement from Breazeale. But how much can you do in one camp? There really is nothing you can do to prepare to take one of Wilders big right hands because nobody throws them like he does. Breazeale to his credit actually has a very good chin. He gets knocked down sometimes but it takes big shots to do it. Wilder hits harder and faster with one punch then his former opponents and it just feels like he isn´t good enough to get out of the way. The only reasonable outcome to believe in is a Wilder knockout. The Pick is Deontay Wilder to win.

The Pick: Deontay Wilder to win fight
