Deontay Wilder

Deontay Wilder

Nationality: usa flag American

Stance: Orthodox

Height: 6' 7"

Reach: 83"

Date of Birth: 22/10/1985

Nickname: "Bronze Bomber"

Total Fights:40

Deontay Wilder boasts a daunting perfect professional record having won all 40 of his fights so far, stopping 39 opponents in the process, but that has gone nowhere close to silencing his critics who believe ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is only 40-0 right now because he has never faced a top heavyweight.

Is that criticism deserved? It has to be said that his list of opponents hardly reads like a who’s who for a man who has stepped into a professional boxing ring on no less than 40 occasions. There is not one signature victory on his CV, but if he can beat former world heavyweight champion Fury on December 1 then it will go some way to quieting to doubters at least for a little while.

But can Wilder win the biggest bout of his career? The one thing that he has going for him – and it is a MASSIVE thing – is his punching power. While ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is sorely lacking in the technical department, he does has fight-ending power in his fists. If Wilder can land one of his trademark concussive blows then he is capable of knocking out any opponent on the planet, but his lack of technique may come back to haunt him against better fights and Fury is the more skilful of the two men.

This is a huge test for Wilder, but if he passes it will only strengthen his claims that he is the number one heavyweight fighter on the planet and the world will once again start talking about a unification showdown with Anthony Joshua.

Comments from the corners -

“Fury got into [Wladimir] Klitschko’s head, and Klitschko wasn't able to let his hands go, execute or do the things he usually does. Fury is trying to do the same thing with me, but he’s not getting into my head... trust me,” Wilder told Premier Boxing Champions.

“I've been through that so many times, this is just another phase in my life. But I want Tyson to think he’s in my head. If he thinks that, then I’m doing a great job of making him believe that. When he steps into the ring with me, Tyson Fury is going to pay for everything that he’s said. I’m going to hold him fully accountable for his actions. I’ve got a thick skin, so this is nothing.

Tyson Fury’s comeback year is going to end in spectacular fashion, whether or not he leaves the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California as a two-time heavyweight champion of the world.

Fury was on top of the world in November 2015 when he shocked an entire sport by ending the heavyweight dominance of Wladimir Klitschko. Few had given him much hope of getting the better of the Ukrainian on that night, but he produced a superb performance that, while not exactly eye-catching and entertaining, got the nod from the judges and made him world heavyweight champion.

The 30-year-old never got to defend his crown though as his personal and professional lives took a massive nose-dive due to issues with mental illness and failed drugs tests, and after a couple of years on the sidelines it appeared as though his career was over. However, Fury has fought back in 2018 and while his comeback bouts have not exactly rocked the boxing world they have earned him a shot at becoming champion once again. Can he take it?

Some believe this fight has come far too early for a man who has fought just two times since late 2015, but Fury believes he can shock the world and if the man who rolled up in Germany and dethroned Klitschko turns up in Los Angeles, then Wilder could be in a world of trouble. If he does not, Fury’s quest to become a two-time champion could be dented in violent and brutal fashion.

Comments from the corners -

“I'm a possessed man,” Fury said during an episode of Showtime’s All Access television show. “I want to tear Deontay Wilder to pieces like a pitbull because he said I couldn't and the world thinks he can beat me.

“I haven't been beat in the ring. Never lost a fight. I've defied odds since I was born. Eight weeks premature, died three times, battled mental health problems."

"If I can beat all that, come through all that, why can't I beat a guy with a pair of boxing gloves on?”
