Dominic Breazeale claims fight with Deontay Wilder was stopped early
Dominic Breazeale feels his fight with Deontay Wilder was stopped early after the WBC champion scored a first-round knockout.
Wilder struck Breazeale down with a perfectly-timed right hand and the mandatory challenger was laid out on his back.
Breazeale was visibly struggling to get back to his feet and the referee, Harvey Dock, waved off the contest after the challenger missed the count.
‘I think the ref stopped it a little early because I could hear him saying seven and eight, but that’s boxing,’ said Breazeale.
‘He did his job and kept us safe for our next fight.
‘I got on my feet and had my legs under me. It’s the heavyweight division so there’s going to big shots from guys with power.
‘This was a situation where he landed the big right hand before I did.
‘I thought I was going to come on in the later rounds.
‘I’ll be back and go for the heavyweight title again.’
Breazeale did not start to get his feet until the eighth count and was still disorientated when he did manage to get up.
