2008 Olympian Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder, 28-0 (28) moved ahead of Ukranian WBC heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko on list of consecutive knockouts “at the start of career”! Only 2 other heavyweights have longer streaks. Spain’s Jose Manuel Urtain had 30 from 1968-1970 until winning the European title by decision. The other was Alabama’s Don “Man of Steel” Steele who had 41 knockouts and 1 no contest. He lost to Denmark’s Brian Nielsen who was 38-0 in 2 rounds for IBO title.

Wilder’s next opponent on June 15th in London, UK, will be former British and Commonwealth champion Dereck Chisora, 16-4 (10), who has been knocked out only once. If Wilder scores a knockout he will tie both former super WBA and WBO super featherweight and WBO lightweight champion Acelino Freitas from 1995-2001 and Mexico’s former WBA bantamweight champion Alfonso Zamora from 1973-77 who both had 29 knockouts. Zamora lost to Carlos Zarate who was 45-0.

Wilder has had 3 fights in Mexico and in his last fight he stopped former 2000 Olympic Gold medalist Audley Harrison in April in the UK. This may be building toward a bout with Daniel Price of the UK by W/O. Price is 9-0 (3) now listed as a cruiserweight but hasn’t fought under 200 yet.
