This is heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder.

He broke his hand and tore his biceps during his fight on Saturday and still won — by technical knockout.

Wilder said he hurt himself because of an awkward punch in the fourth round and had to go four more rounds basically one-handed. 

But that didn't stop him from dominating the fight — and looking ahead to the next one.

Wilder made sure to call out Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua, the other two heavyweight title holders.

Wilder might have a point. He's now 37-0 in his pro career, with all but one of those wins coming by knockout.
