Deontay Wilder: Bronze Bomber's hilarious 'one chip' challenge from 2017


Deontay Wilder has faced many opponents over the course of his career, but one many may not know he’s come up against is the dreaded Paqui Carolina Reaper Tortilla Chip.

Back in 2017, the then WBC heavyweight champion Wilder took on the infamous One Chip Challenge for Yahoo! Sports.

For those that don’t know, the Carolina Reaper Pepper holds the Guinness World Record for the hottest pepper on the planet.

Tortilla chip brand Paqui thus decided to create one tortilla chip flavoured like the pepper. Hence, the One Chip Challenge became a viral internet trend.

In Wilder’s attempt at the challenge, let’s just say he came out of it looking like he just did an intense gym workout.

The Bronze Bomber came into it confident, but the chip continued to get the better of him as time passed.

He began to sweat like crazy and also tear up to the point where he tried to brush it aside by saying he was thinking about his grandma.

One might also question why Wilder wore such a heavy jacket for this kind of challenge.

Despite him sweating buckets, Wilder took it to the next level and decided to not only lick the chip dust off his fingers, but also lick the dust from inside the packaging.

Arguably the funniest moment of the clip is when Wilder says: “Why does it make you reminisce about the good ol days.”

At the end of the video, he even challenged Anthony Joshua and Mike Tyson to do the challenge, but there’s no record of either fighter having done it.

Wilder truly is a mad man, but as one YouTube comically put it, “He's just lucky it wasn't the Chipsy King.”
