Wilder stops Stiverne in Round one(WATCH)

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder retained his belt on Saturday night after stopping Bermane Stiverne in Round one at Barclays Center.

Wilder first knocked Stiverne to the ground with a devastating one-two combination that caught the Haitian challenger on the nose. Seconds after Stiverne got back to his feet, Wilder landed another clean combination with a big left and an overhand right that sent a stunned Stiverne back to the canvas. The final blow came in the waning moments of the opening round as Wilder landed four clean punches to the face of a wobbly Stiverne.

Here’s how it looked:
