"I Thought I Had Killed Him" - Deontay Wilder Reveals His Favourite Knockout
By Mike Parrott
Deontay Wilder has revealed what his favourite Knockout has been throughout his career after fans were stunned by his devastating Knockout of Luis Ortiz earlier this Month.
Deontay Wilder is coming off another Knockout victory, again against Luis Ortiz, after their rematch earlier this Month. Wilder now boasts 41 Knockouts in 43 fights, an incredible 97% Knockout percentage.
Many of the Bronze Bomber's fans believed that the recent Ortiz KO was the best of his career, however, Wilder thinks differently.
The current Heavyweight Champion believes that his best Knockout was against Artur Szpilka in 2016:
"Man, I think the [Artur Szpilka] fight still tops it."
"Just the way that he landed and I really didn't see him breathing ... at all. I didn't see him start breathing until his girlfriend came over and he finally woke up."

This comes after many Boxing fans have been debating if Wilder now is the hardest-hitter in Boxing history. With many legends such as George Foreman, Mike Tyson, and even Wilder himself coming out to say who's better.
"I am the hardest-hitting puncher in boxing history, period," said the Bronze Bomber.
Foreman has also had his say about Wilder:
"He's [Wilder] good but he hasn't approached Joe Lewis, Joe Frazier, Mike Tyson. No, he hasn't approached that kind of recognition yet. No way."
