Deontay Wilder was too much for Chris Arreola on Saturday night
By Chris Robinson
On Saturday night, July 16, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder made the fourth successful defense of his title with a punishing 8th round TKO over contender Chris Arreola.
The bout took place from the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Ala., as Wilder (37-0, 36 KO’s) was simply too sharp, powerful, and active for Arreola (36-5-1, 31 KO’s), who may have seen his last appearance on the big stage.
It was revealed after the match that Wilder had been taken to a nearby hospital, as he suffered a broken right hand during the match.
