Deontay Wilder Will Get Heavyweight Title Chance after Knocking Out Malik Scott [VIDEO]

Tuscaloosa native Deontay Wilder knocked out Malik Scott in the first round of Saturday’s fight, moving his record to a perfect 31-0.

Fans and boxing analysts want to see if Wilder has the stamina to win the heavyweight title, but he’s knocked out every opponent he’s faced before a fight has gotten to that point. With the win over Scott, the 6’7″ Wilder will be the first challenger after the title belt goes to the winner of the¬†rematch between Bermane Stiverne and Chris Arreola on May 10.

“I got power, I got natural power,” said Wilder after the fight. “It’s all-natural Alabama power. I’m blessed. My power is crazy. [The right hand] is like a missile.”

Many boxing fans believe that Wilder can bring back the heavyweight belt to the United States, and the 2008 Olympic bronze medalist agrees.

“I’m on one mission and that’s to be the heavyweight champion of the world and unify all the belts in the division and bring them back to America, baby. That’s my mission.”
