Deontay Wilder clocks in fastest knockouts per fight ahead of potential title bout, Fury follows in close second

01/31/2023 - No comments

Former WBC World champion Deontay WIlder has the fastest minutes-to-knockout ratio than his rival heavyweight contenders Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte and Oleksandr Usyk, research shows.

The Bronze Bomber remains a dominant force in the heavyweight division, defending the title 10 times between 2015 and 2020 before losing it to the ‘’Gypsy King’’ Tyson Fury.

MyBettingSites have taken the data from the World’s top heavyweights’ last 10 fights to reveal who has been cutting through their opponents and who likes to play with their food.

Wilder placed top of the table – only needing 18.27 minutes-per-knockout in his last ten fights, with a total of seven knockouts in his last 10 fights. Wilder is on a comeback for Gold as both him and Andy Ruiz have been ordered to fight in a final title eliminator by the WBC, after successful victories over Robert Helenius and Victor Ortiz, respectively.

The current WBC champion Fury sits below him – only needing 7.19 minutes more to knock his opponents. He takes 25.46 minutes to dispose of his opponents, whilst recording one fewer knockout than his former opponent.

The ‘Gypsy King’ has one more obstacle to undisputed Glory as he is aiming to fight Oleksander Usyk in April to unify all heavyweight titles.

The Ukrainian fighter sits at the bottom of the list, averaging a whopping 31.52 minutes to knock out his opponents – with four knockouts to his name in his last 10 fights.

Though staggering in the face of his future opponent and fellow undefeated fighter, Fury – who has six knockouts to his name, it could provide a testament to his technical abilities despite only making the jump to heavyweight in 2019.

Since coming up to Heavyweight, it is clear that Usyk has taken the division by storm. Defeating the likes of Derek Chisora and dethroning Anthony Joshua at the top of the mountain, boxing fans around the world are desperate to see this blockbuster bout.

Former two-time World Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is below Fury, averaging 27.94 minutes per knockout – needing 2.48 minutes more than the undefeated fighter and 12.8 minutes more than Deontay Wilder.

What time is Oleh Dovhun vs Juan Centeno tonight?

Joshua is looking to come back to winning ways and has teased a rematch with rival Dillian Whyte. However, he has targeted an April 1st comeback and the likely opponent is Whyte’s former foe Jermaine Franklin.

This could prove the better choice for Joshua. Dillian Whyte sits one place above him on the list – only needing 1.57 minutes fewer to knock out his opponents in his last 10 fights. The ‘’Bodysnatcher’’ has also recorded fewer knockouts than Joshua in his last 10 fights, earning three compared to Joshua’s 5.

As the heavyweight division begins to take shape – will we finally see another undisputed Champion? Will we see new contenders rise to the challenge? Only time will tell.
