2012-12-15 : Deontay Wilder 223½ lbs beat Kelvin Price 244 lbs by KO at 0:51 in round 3 of 10


Deontay Wilder remained unbeaten scoring a 3rd-round technical knockout win over Kelvin Price 13-0 (6 KOs) in Los Angeles, California.

Wilder fought patiently through the first two rounds and mostly measured his opponent, as Price moved and threw an occasional punch with varying success.

The fight ended in an instant, however, when a right hand from Wilder caught Price on the jaw and sent him back into the ropes and down. He attempted to get to his feet, but struggled which led referee Ray Corona to wave an end to the bout.
