This fight saw the Bronze Bomber completely destroy Duhaupas, but not without the Frenchman putting up a strong fight with an iron-chin and an iron-will.
Throughout the fight, Duhaupas endured a savage barrage of hits from the hometown favorite. In several rounds, it appeared as if the referee would stop the fight. As soon as it appeared it was over, Duhaupas kept on going like a savage beast and took punishment like no other opponent before him.
After the fight, Deontay’s hand was raised in victory as he held his daughter Naieya in his arms. Soon after, he walked around each corner of the ring holding up the arms of his opponent all smiles with good sportsmanship.
In the words of the victor: "Duhaupas did everything we expected him to do. We knew he was tough. We knew he was mentally tough. We knew he was going to come. That's why I tell people, 'You can't criticize anyone you don't know. The scariest people are the ones you don't know . They're the most dangerous ones.' He's got a hell of a chin too."
