[Video] Deontay Wilder Knocks Out Malik Scott – Rd 1
BAYAMON, PR –
Deontay Wilder ended his night early by defeating Malik Scott by TKO Saturday night in Puerto Rico on Showtime Championship Boxing.
This fight was supposed to represent the first real test for Wilder who’s 30-0-0 record (all 30 wins by knockout) has been criticized for it’s lack of current, relevant opponents. Scott however failed to live up to the high hopes and became yet another notch on W on Wilder’s resume. As the two circled the ring looking to gain the upper hand, Wilder struck first and only blood by connecting with a left hook to Scott’s temple and following with a right that put him down for good.
The ending would come at the 1:36 mark of round 1. We never had the chance to get our popcorn out of the microwave.
