Deontay Wilder Scored A Freakish Number Using His 'Weak' Left Hook On A Punching Machine

Feared power puncher Deontay Wilder recorded a whopping 927 score on an arcade-themed boxing machine using his weaker hand.

The 34-year-old WBC champ has amassed a whopping 41 knockout victories from his 43 professional fights.

And KO artist Wilder showed off his impressive punching power during an episode of Inside PBC Boxing.

The 'Bronze Bomber' went into a head-to-head battle with American boxer Jarrett Hurd, who stepped up first for a swing at the arcade punching machine.

The 29-year-old former unified light middleweight champ put his full weight behind his right-handed shot and scored an impressive 935.

Wilder stepped up and decided not to do a run-up like Hurd, but he also took a swing using his weaker left hand.

The WBC kingpin landed a powerful left hook and scored 927, only falling a few points short of Hurd's effort.

However, Wilder's freakish power with his weaker hand has even stunned fans.

One YouTube commenter wrote: "927 left handed hook with no run up...That just told me he [has] freakish power in both hands."

While user TheRexrapper posted: "If he punched it with his right hand the machine would read error."

A third boxing fan said: "Everyone who does this takes [a] step into their punch, WILDER just stood next to the machine and hit it with his off hand..."

And user Louis Vuitton Don added: "You can tell Wilder didn't really hit it with his full power."

David Haye, who previously sparred with Wilder, has argued that the 'Bronze Bomber' has the hardest punching power he has ever experienced.

"I always really respected him, from the first sparring session I ever had with him, I knew this guy was something special," he said.

"His punch power is 10 out of 10, that's it. I don't know how else to say it. You know when you've been hit by him. It's very different to anyone else.

"He is the hardest puncher I've ever been in the ring with."
