what are they showing? >> they open up. most impressively pad speak of physical strength of washington. they are stepping in and around him. he's with deontay at this point. >> deontay on the ropes. really trying to open up the repertoire. wilder wants to open up and attack. but that's a nice attack right off his shoulder. >> disrupted his rhythm. >> washington in this round, he sees something. but at the same time he has to be smart.
wilder is known for that right hand. he nabbed it really well. timing is perfect. for some reason washington went on a bad foot. now he's standing stationary. >> they should continue. they should continue to use it. >> they had length. wilder of course has the wingspan. >> you look at him, when he moves him back again he's in a powerful position. deontay is not stepping, he's not in position to count.
>> he's giving them momentum. giving washington momentum. >> he's getting confused. he thought he closed his eyes right there. >> washington is 34 years old. elite start in the navy. the clock is ticking. he knows. he needs to make money, he'd like to have a great career. get the shot at the heavyweight title. in enemy territory. moves in, right hand to the body again. active with the japanese had were going to keep it here. let's look back at some of this,

always gets into his destination safely. but if the fight keeps going like that that is, washington might have a chance to rename that belt. >> and a few new cars, too. >> you had a whole bunch of belts in your life. have you ever given them a name? >> no, not really. >> i didn't think so. what about light, lucille? what you think? do you have a relationship with larry holmes? >> no, not really. in the zone so far. they stay close. >> washington is able to use his size and strength on deontay. >> washington was able to establish that distance and stay in the pocket.
you see their scoring average. so far a clean sweep. watching on tv here on fox. you all think three rounds to zero. we asked what he thought, he said he's got it all, he's terrific. he said it's about me, my timing, my mental game. i've got to be aggressive. i've got to learn to be comfortable when you're supposed to be uncomfortable. in uncomfortable situations. >> he's usually very effective. i don't think they expected it here. >> a good body shop.
now he gets a little rough. he fought against arreaola. he was able to do the punishing even with one hand. >> he needs to take advantage of this round. deontay should throw a little bit more. but washington, i think he's waiting for that job to counter on top without overhand right. i don't know if i'm right, but he's definitely waiting for deontay to make a mistake. has a double job. >> i almost want to see more aggressive. we haven't seen as of yet. there's a job coming up from the other fighter. but he obviously has a more
complete arc but we haven't seen it yet. gerald washington doing a terrific job, established himself early. keeping him at a distance. getting physical. he could be winning i guess all of these rounds. we don't know the score but he seems to be the one who has been aggressive and more assertive. you see him with his right hand. >> that is a good point. now we're talking about that because of the injury. i don't know if it's the injury or that just hasn't presented itself. >> he has not shown that ability and determination and he's shown it tonight.
>> he's in the corner there, vociferous there with wilder. let me just ask you this stupid question. he's absolutely looking a guy in the eye, he's used to looking at a much shorter guy at the very least. how much does that bother him. much to size alone change the equation here for deontay? >> i hate to keep saying that but it's true. they're playing a big gap yet he's made his lineup. so he's going to fight. >> that's not a small thing. he's got his mind made up that he's going to win and that will take you a long way. >> it will take you a long way.
>> how difficult is it to change tactics or be put on the accelerator in the middle of a fight? >> it shouldn't be difficult. he's been in this position before. i don't know what's keeping him from doing so. deontay wilder is a great champion. he is a great fighter. he should definitely change his game plan. [cheers and applause] >> wilder with the right hand, and down goes wilder. wilder talking to the crowd. let's see what happens now. big left hand. he is getting closer.
washington is hurt, wobbling around. while matt. >> he just gave him a great fight. but that's the right hand where looking for. and that's it. that's all she wrote. >> i initially thought the referee was too close and was looking to stop it. what is you think about? >> it shows you that if you're patient, you got confidence in your ability, you know that he's going to make mistakes and you can capitalize on the mistake. >> in the heavyweight landscape, how perfect is that?
he was tested by a big man and he answered it with one shot. that becomes an exhilarating wi win. we are going to take another look at that right hand when we come back. it was one-shot. oh, we'll do it right now. there it is. just a sharp right hand right across the face of the washington and that did it. deontay wilder, 38-0, 37 kos. we'll hear from wilder when we come back.
long, lengthy right hand. that's why this is such a shocking yet exhilarating win. >> i said earlier yesterday that deontay's long right hand, you can see it. but when he has that short when he's devastated and you can see how short it is right there. like washington never shot. and washington made the mistake of stepping out with a half jab. >> evander holyfield is here. what'd you think about short right hand? >> hit them right in the temple. you don't see it, and that's what happens when you get hit with a short top. >> again, wilder looks lethargic, losing rounds, great right hand, evander holyfield ringside. larry holmes as well, what did you think, larry? heavyweight legend, and wilder remains one of the heavyweight champions. let's go to ralph lorenz. >> ladies and gentlemen, the end comes at 1:45 of the fifth
