Michael Hunter Destroys Mike Wilson in latest bout

In his latest prizefight, heavyweight Michael “The Bounty” Hunter (20-1-1, 14 KO’s) performed impressively to claim the win. He did so by defeating Mike “White Delight” Wilson (21-2, 20 KO’s) by fourth round TKO. With the win Hunter now has back-to-back wins since being saddled with a draw when facing Alexander Povetkin on December 7, 2019.

Wilson entered the bout riding two consecutive wins before being roughly shoved back into the loss column. Along with the victory, Bounty Hunter also picked up the vacant WBA Continental Americas heavyweight title. Heading into the dust-up Hunter was ranked #6 (WBO), #6 (WBA) and #6 (WBC), while Wilson was #14 (WBA).


With the clang of the opening bell Hunter charged out of his corner and took the fight straight to Wilson. Once engaged Bounty Hunter riddled White Delight’s head and body with straight, jabs and hooks. The action was so one-sided that by the second period, the favorite was show-boating in a major way. He did this by either holding his hands at his waist or well over his head and then throwing sharp punches from these positions. Despite his rather reckless manner of competing Hunter was having his way in the ring.

The one-way annihilation persisted until the fourth when the Bounty put his foot on the gas like a Fast and Furious extra. When the pace quickened the new champ repeatedly snapped Wilson’s head back with a crispy and consistent uppercut. Yet, the end came when Hunter punched with Wilson and clobbered him with a brutal right hook. The shot instantly sent the bloody underdog to the canvas. To his credit Wilson beat the count but wandered around the ring rather drunkenly. Seeing his compromised condition referee Ricky Gonzalez swiftly brought the fight to a close.

Hunter is quite possibly the “Dark Horse” of the heavyweight division. He has shown that he can contend with the bigger men since campaigning in the division on a more permanent basis after suffering the only loss of his career to former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk. Whether it’s a rematch with the aforementioned or a shot at another top contender, the boxing world cannot rule Hunter out as a legitimate threat until he is nullified!
