Deontay Wilder has described himself as thetoughest hitter at boxing after his seventh-round knockout of Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The Cuban had dominated the first six weeks, but has been knocked to the floor with a right hand that was stunning in Wilder, 34.
He retained the WBC world heavyweight title with his 42nd triumph by knockout from 43 fights.
I think I made my admiration to say Im the hardest-hitting puncher in boxing background. Stage, explained the American.
I do everything I really do time and time again. I give folks great fights and amazing knockouts.
Wilder has produced 10 defences.
The fight he has not won in his career was the attraction with Tyson Fury in Los Angeles at December 2018. Then, he put Fury in the canvas in the last round.
However, the Alabama fighter believes his achievements deserve greater recognition.
Youve got to give my charge, he said. It is sad it took me over 40 fights to find the recognition I really deserve.
When people see me, they have never seen my style. It took them some time to get used to what I display, my ability I present to boxing.
It is different to any other fighter. Its not textbook. You cant actually teach it and thats exactly just what makes me unique in the remainder of those fighters.
