Deontay Wilder slams boxing as he considers his future in the sport

In an interesting revelation, Deontay Wilder has slammed the sport of boxing and now claims that he will use psychedelics to help him decide whether or not to hang up his gloves for good.

Wilder last fought in October 2021, where he was defeated by Tyson Fury via an 11th-round knockout.

Since then, Wilder’s next move has remained a mystery to the world of boxing.

Now, it seems the 36-year-old will take time to reflect on his career and if he will step in the ring once more.

The Bronze Bomber went on the Byron Scott Podcast and revealed that he is going to turn to Ayahuasca – a South American psychedelic brew – to aid him in deciding what is best for his future.

Wilder said: “I’m thinking about doing Ayahuasca.

“That’s gonna be my decision making process… Boxing has a bad taste because of what it’s done to me.

“It’s dangerous, politics, cheating… I still have love for the sport though.”

For those who don’t know, Ayahuasca is used both socially and as ceremonial spiritual medicine to help alter someone’s way of thinking, as well as their emotions and sense of time.

Matchroom Boxing’s head honcho Eddie Hearn has been talking up the possibility of Wilder getting in the ring with veteran fighter Derek Chisora. The Zimbabwean-born Brit has lost his last three bouts, the last of which came in December 2021.

Yet, following two consecutive losses to the Gypsy King, the only two defeats of his professional boxing career, Wilder has remained coy about who he may or may not be fighting next.
