Deontay Wilder scouts...himself


Heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs), coming off his contested split draw against Tyson Fury in December, fights Dominic Breazeale May 18 on Showtime.


TRAINER: Deontay Wilder is the rare fighter gifted with one-punch power.


TRAINER: He's athletic and tall with good reach, but he tends to fight at his opponent's range instead of using his length.


WILDER: I can count on one hand how many times I've outweighed my opponent in my pro career.


Weight does add to the velocity [of the punch], but the technique, fast-twitch muscles, timing and positioning of your hands all work together.


TRAINER: Dominic Breazeale [21-0, 18 KOs] is a notch below the elite level, and Wilder will stop him in the last third of the fight.
