Heavyweight great Mike Tyson was ringside at the MGM Grand, and Wilder made a bold statement when interviewed by Sky Sports.
After his win, the 34-year-old was asked whether he was the biggest puncher since Tyson in his prime.
He responded: "Hands down. I don't have to say it with my words, my actions prove it every time."
Tyson came dressed in a red blazer and looking the part for the big fight night in Las Vegas.

Wilder also confirmed his plans to fight Tyson Fury in a rematch before turning his attention to adding more belts in his 2020 vision.
He told US broadcasters FOX Sports: "Next up is Tyson Fury and it is scheduled for February.
"Then after that I want a unification bout. We need one name, one champion, one face. It's too confusing for the fans."
