Wilder dethrones Stiverne in heavyweight clash – Yahoo News

Wilder won easily on all three judges scorecards Saturday in a fight that many were surprised went the distance instead of ending with the knockout finish that both fighters had predicted.

Wilder was able to back up his pre-fight trash talking by outpunching the Canadian champion and winning almost every round. Two judges scored the fight 118-109 and 119-108 while the third had it 120-107.

“I want to bring excitement back to the heavyweight division,” said Wilder, who became the first USA-born fighter to win a heavyweight world title since Shannon Briggs held the lightly-regarded World Boxing Organization belt for a brief time in 2006. via – Yahoo News
