Deontay Wilder has described himself as thetoughest hitter in boxing after his seventh-round knockout of Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The Cuban had dominated the first six rounds, but was knocked to the ground by a right hand that was gorgeous from Wilder.
He kept the WBC world title with his 42nd triumph 41 of these, against 43 fights by knockout.
I think I made my admiration to say Im the hardest-hitting puncher in boxing background. Stage, explained the American.
I do what I really do again and again. I give folks great fights and excellent knockouts.
Wilder has produced 10 defences of the WBC belt, which he has held since January 2015.
The only fight he has not won in his career was the attraction with Tyson Fury in Los Angeles in December 2018. Even then, he still put Fury on the canvas at the last round.
But the Alabama boxer feels his achievements deserve more recognition.
You have got to give my credit, he explained. Its sad that it took me 40 fights to find the recognition I truly deserve.
When people see me, they have never seen my own style. It took them some time to get accustomed to what I exhibit, my ability I introduce to boxing.
It is different to any other fighter. Its not textbook. You cant actually teach it and thats what makes me unique in the rest of those fighters.
