Deontay Wilder retained his heavyweight title on Saturday night with a devastating one-punch KO of Artur Szpilka at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
The two engaged in a pretty competitive fight, although neither were able to land many of their punches. While their shots tended to be wild, they were being thrown with bad intentions. As the fight progressed, Szpilka began to visibly frustrate Wilder but it appeared that a single punch could change things around for either fighter.
That one punch finally showed up in the ninth round when Wilder (36-0, 35 KOs) connected with a brutal right hand that immediately floored Szpilka (20-1, 15 KOs), and put him out cold.
