Deontay Wilder

Deontay Wilder Profile

Deontay Wilder is a professional boxer that currently competes in the Heavyweight division, ranked as the third-best in class by Boxrec.

Aptly known as 'The Bronze Bomber,' Wilder is known for his devastating knockout ability and power in his right hand that has put many opponents down over the year - possessing one of the most impressive records in all of boxing today.

Born on October 22nd 1985 in Alabama, USA, Wilder made his debut in Nashville, Tennessee back in 2008 against Ethan Cox, which was the beginning of an impressive 40-bout winning streak. Wilder beat some well-respected fighters along the way - including Chris Arreola, Malik Scott and GB Olympic gold medalist Audley Harrison.

Wilder became the first American Heavyweight champion since 2004 after beating Bermane Stiverne for the WBC title in 2015, making ten defences before losing to Tyson Fury in their rematch. It remains to be seen if their final encounter provides a different result again and his ability to turn fights around with one punch is legendary. He has a knockout-to-win percentage of 98%, twenty of those knockouts coming in the first round.

Away from boxing, Wilder has eight children and has a younger brother who is also a professional, Marsellos, with a record of 5-2 in the Cruiserweight division.
