  • –Deontay Wilder roughed up Johann Duhaupas early, bloodying his nose in Round 1.

  • –Although Wilder continually rocked Duhaupas with devastating right hands, the Frenchman was able to score with his jab intermittently and land rights around Wilder’s guard, doing enough to cause the champ's left eye to begin swelling badly beginning in Round 4.

  • –Duhaupas never stopped coming forward even though Wilder rocked him with power shots throughout the later rounds, turning his face to pulp and leading referee Jack Reiss to stop the fight in Round 11.

To say that Johann Duhaupas was a glutton for punishment would be to understate the buffet of abuse the man was force fed at the hand of Deontay Wilder. It was like an evening at the Golden Corral, but with Wilder’s fists in place of dubious deep-fried eats.

Still, Duhaupas fought valiantly and proved himself to have a bulletproof beard. Dude’s chin was so durable, it was if it was manufactured by Rubbermaid.

Throughout the fight, Duhaupas never stopped coming forward. Wilder inexplicably kept his hands low on too many occasions, allowing Duahaupas to find home with his jab.

When Wilder did have his gloves up, Duhaupas was able to land rights around his guard from time to time. It was enough for Duhaupas to do some serious damage to Wilder’s eye, which began to swell shut in Round 4.

Still, it was Duhaupas who absorbed much more punishment, his nose bleeding from the opening round.

Wilder rocked Duhaupas with blistering right hands the entire fight, unleashing a particularly blistering array of combos in Round 4 in the center of the ring as the Frenchman’s face became bashed into a bloody pulp.

Duhaupas did his best to weather the storm—or hurricane, rather—firing punches until the end. But after eating a series of uppercuts on the ropes, referee Jack Reiss stopped the fight in Round 11 to give Wilder a TKO victory.
