There’s alot of trash talk going between two fighters before this fight, Both of them claim that the fight will end in Knockout but we failed to see this result instead they have Â produced a less entertaining fight, Deontay Wilder fought like Vitali Klitscko using his height and reach as an advantage that long jab really keeps Stiverne from distance where Deontay can pick his shots and move away Wilder also hurt Stiverne in several occasions during the fight but Bername takes these shots and comes back and fires back his own shots at Wilder.
Stiverne didn’t do much adjustment, he was forced to go forward as Wilder keeps his distance and jabs, Stiverne is a fighter who is good in counter punching when his opponent goes at him like the Chris Arreola fight, Â Stiverne Knockout Arreola with a counter right hand. Wilder have studied Â Stiverne very well he didn’t go aggressive as he always does because he knows that Stiverne got a good punch that can end the fight.
It was a safety first fight for Wilder Â he outworked Stiverne with these long jabs and power right hand shots, Stiverne maybe waited long enough for Wilder commit mistake and find the opportunity to land that counter right hand but it never came.
Deontay Wilder takes the heavyweight title back to USA as he outpoints Bernabe Stiverne in their 12 round Â match for theÂ WBC World heavyweight title. Wilder showed some discipline in this fight sticking on their game plan with this win Wilder improves his record to winsÂ 33-0, 32 Knock Out while Stiverne’s record slides down to Â 24 wins 2 loses and 21 Knock Out.
