With an impressive 18 first round knockouts, Deontay Wilder is being touted by some as “the second coming of Mike Tyson.”

Saturday night in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, Wilder raised his record to 31 victories and 0 defeats by pummeling Malik Scott in just 96 seconds. Before the bout, many were saying that 13 year fight veteran Scott was to be the Bronze Bomber’s toughest opponent to date.

At the strike of the opening bell both boxers came out swinging. In the end, Deontay delivered a hard left followed by a solid right that sent Scott to the canvas. It appeared that Scott may recover but did not get to his feet before the referee called the match.

In a recent interview, Wilder told 8countnews.com, “I’m here, I’m in the door now. We’ve been talking about this moment for a long time to come and my moment to come has now came.”

The 28-year-old Tuscaloosa native is now in position for a WBC heavyweight title shot against the winner of the Stiverne vs. Arreola fight on May 10th.
