Wilder had said in the pre-fight build-up that he wanted to kill Breazeale, and several times said he wanted a body bag on his record.
Referee Harvey Dock waved off the fight after the Bronze Bomber delivered a devastating hook that sent Breazeale to the canvass and was unable to pick himself up as he was counted out. Deontay Wilder is the second baddest man on the planet behind 'The Gypsy King, ' AKA Tyson Fury, the number one heavyweight in the world.
So Wilder returns his attention to Anthony Joshua, with whom he has repeatedly failed to reach agreement and who has his own interim defence, against American-Mexican slugger Andy Ruiz Jr, in New York's Madison Square Garden on June 1.
The history of the Heavyweight division in boxing is long and storied, but for the past few decades, the division has slipped in notoriety, making way for the lower weight classes to grab all the headlines.
"I think if the Wilder of usual turns up, it could be an early night - within five rounds".
"I want the best fights possible".
Oh, and his knockout led ESPN's "SportsCenter" late Saturday night. But the rematch will happen, like all these other fights will happen. The great thing is all these fights are in discussion.More news: NTSB links Tesla crash to Autopilot; 3rd such fatal accident

Coming off a draw with Fury on December 1, Wilder needed to do something to keep fans' interest after not landing an expected rematch with The Gypsy King.
"That fight will happen". If Wilder or Joshua get clipped, if their occasionally shaky chins fail them, that money is gone, a legacy defining fight potentially with it. "When you get dropped on the canvas like that I understand you have to get yourself back together".
"Everything just came out of me". I know we say some things, but when you can fight a man and then you can hug him and kiss him, I wish the world was like that.
And Finkel told the post-fight press conference that he wanted to make both fights against Fury and Joshua next. "I believe in all my heart it will happen".
This was meant to be Wilder-Fury II.
"The big fight will happen, I promise you that, with patience, come time, and I just want you guys to have patience and give us a little time to make this thing happen so we all benefit from it, not only just you fans", he said. Dillian Whyte, you'll get it as well.
