Deontay Wilder vs Sergei Liakhovich, ShoBox Results


A convulsion is a medical condition where body muscles contract and relax rapidly, resulting in an uncontrolled shaking of the body. Convulsions are often present in seizures which occur after an episode of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. Friday night that boast of electricity was caused by a right hand to the face. That right hand belonged to former Olympic medalist and current heavyweight prospect, Deontay Wilder. He landed it in the first round of Friday night’s telecast of Showbox. Wilder was set to face a former champion in one, Sergei Liakhovich.

Liakhovich was suppose to be Wilder’s biggest test up to date. He went 9 rounds with Bryant Jennings and Robert Helenius. Wilder’s game plan tonight was to get in some rounds. That’s why he wanted to face such a crafty fighter like Liakhovich. That part didn’t go as planed. Coming into the fight Wilder had 28 straight knockouts in 28 fights. What impressed me the most was that he went through the test with an electric shock that threw Liakhovich to the cavas. After hitting the canvas Liakhovich started convulsing ont the ground until the referee called for the doctors.

The fight didn’t show Wilder getting in more work than in previous outings, but it did show how impressive Wilder is. I believe he didn’t have to show the rounds because he is too explosive of a fighter. The name, Mike Tyson comes to mind, but Wilder isn’t quite there yet. As of now, whenever he is featured on Showbox, HBO, or any other telecast, you don’t want miss Wilder’s next fight. When you see him again, don’t blink or you might miss the end.
