This one probably can’t be viewed as a total surprise. Unbeaten heavyweight prospect Deontay Wilder entered his August encounter with Siarhei Liakhovich sporting a perfect 28-0 record with 28 KOs.

Nobody had made it out of the Round 4 against him.

But Liakhovich was supposed to be a different type of challenge for Wilder. He’s a former world champion, and even though he had been stopped twice in recent years, both times, it had been by late TKO.

The rugged and experienced Liakhovich was expected to at least give Wilder some physically uncomfortable moments.

Instead, Wilder rolled to victory in his usual manner. His Round 1 KO of Liakhovich was legitimately scary, and Wilder now has more buzz than any American heavyweight has in years.
