Deontay Wilder 221 lbs beat Bermane Stiverne 255 lbs by KO at 2:59 in round 1 of 12

Notes

  • Stiverne, who is the #1 contender for the title, replaces Luis Ortiz, who failed a drug test in September. Stiverne originally accepted money to step-aside and box Dominic Breazeale on the undercard and fight Wilder at a later date if he won. Stiverne has not fought since 2015 in a close decision win against Derric Rossy.
  • Stiverne down three times. After 3rd down referee stopped the bout without counting.
  • After the fight, Wilder called out WBA and IBF champion Anthony Joshua.
