Deontay Wilder vs. Dominic Breazeale predictions

"The Bronze Bomber" is the heavy favourite

The WBC heavyweight title is up for grabs as heavily favoured champion Deontay Wilder defends against No.1 contender Dominic Breazeale in the main event which can be watched on Showtime beginning at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.

The time for talking is over. Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main event.

TALE OF THE TAPE

DEONTAY WILDER (40-0-1, 39 KOs)

AGE: 33

HEIGHT: 6-7

WEIGHT: 223.25 lbs.

STANCE: ORTHODOX

REACH: 83

DOMINIC BREAZEALE (20-1-0, 18 KOs)

AGE: 33

HEIGHT: 6-7

WEIGHT: 255.25 lbs.

STANCE: ORTHODOX

REACH: 81

Andrews: The bottom line here is that this fight is taylor made for Wilder’s style. Breazeale is a fighter who likes to come forward and punish you and doesn’t mind eating shots to do it. This should give Wilder many opportunities to establish his jab and to catch Breazeale coming in with his patented right hand.

Breazeale has a puncher’s chance aside from connecting with a big shot if he can work the body of Wilder and maybe slow him down by the later rounds, but Wilder should be ready and waiting for that. The best defence for Breazeale is a good offence, but it will likely be his downfall. I would be shocked if this went past the ninth round.

Andrews Prediction: Deontay Wilder via TKO (6th Round)
