The former WBC-heavy monarch, Deontay Wilder, had a fantastic career until he confronted Tyson Fury. The Alabama boxer has not entered the ring since his brutal loss to the Briton. A year ago, ‘Bronze Bomber’ spoke with GQ Sports. He took fan questions around him and his clinical boxing career.
One fan claimed that Wilder would be a good NBA player had he not been a professional boxer. To this Wilder said:
“I used to play sports throughout high school. I played football, basketball, baseball and running races … When I came up in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, my goal was to be a football player or a basketball player … But I think I would have been a good NBA postman myself, man! ”
Growing up, Wilder developed too many sports and later fell in love with boxing. He was an avid football player and even admitted that his goal was to be a football player. He believes Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is a hub for football where quality athletes are made.
Wilder also said, “If there could be any sport I could transfer overnight, I would probably say baseball. More money, less risk. You keep all your money. ”
Can Deontay Wilder turn around the Heavyweight Division in 2021?
‘Bronze Bomber’ is a very scary fighter from this decade. During his extensive boxing, he fell asleep without any problems. He has an amazing 93.18% knockout ratio in the division of giant men. Even if 2020 did not go as he must have planned, he will definitely look at turning the tables next year.
Wilder is still 3. ranked heavyweight and is not too far from regaining its gold.
‘Bronze Bomber’ is busy ordering a trilogy with his enemy, Tyson rage. But the British have their plans for heavyweight association against Anthony Joshua. Then Wilder would take a couple of other opponents to regain his speed inside the ring and a possible shot at the title.
Who do you want to see Wilder take on next time? Can he become the heavyweight world champion by the end of 2021?
