Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale: All Access Epilogue and Emmys
Without question, the last several days have been a whirlwind of success, release and validation for WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (41-0-1, 40 KO’s).
The good times began this past Saturday, when Wilder emphatically defended his belt against the challenge of Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale.
Not only did the hard-hitting Tuscaloosa native prevail, he flattened Breazeale in highlight reel fashion during the first round. Having immediately gone viral, the thrilling stoppage has been viewed millions of times online.
Already, the crunching one-punch vanquishing is a leading candidate for knockout of the year. To make matters even sweeter, the title fight marked the ninth successful defense of his heavyweight strap and clinched Wilder a place in boxing history.
Wilder is now only the tenth heavyweight in history to achieve this distinguished number of defenses.
Let the Good Times Roll
Two days after the Breazeale demolition, Wilder won a pair of sports Emmys. While at the 40th Annual Sports Emmy’s in New York City, the Bronze Bomber was supplied two awards.
Namely, for Outstanding Edited Sports Event Coverage and Outstanding Edited Sports Special or Series. Both awards were for Showtime’s All Access: Wilder v Fury Epilogue.
The National Academy of Television Arts and Science are who deemed the program, and Wilder, the winners of the coveted Emmy’s.
At the moment, Wilder is on top of the world! His last four bouts have all gone viral with the fight with Breazeale peaking at 990K views on Showtime, his popularity is through the roof, and at the moment, the WBC champion appears to be the heavyweight who is calling the shots.
The majority of the boxing world yearns to see Wilder v Joshua, which is a match-up that has proven to be quite elusive to finalize. If not a scrap with Anthony Joshua, the boxing heads would enjoy either a Tyson Fury or Luis Ortiz rematch.
Only time will tell who Wilder is fated to face next. Stay tuned to 3kingsboxing for the latest news and boxing updates.
