With a strong start to 2014, Wilder could put himself into position to fight for his first world title fight later this year, as he seeks to add his name to the list of great American heavyweight champions.
Deontay Wilder could be the missing piece that boxing has been looking for since the days of Mike Tyson, a great American heavyweight champion. The 27 year-old burst onto the scene with a bronze medal performance at the 2008 Olympic Games, only two and a half years after he started boxing. Wilder currently boasts an impressive 30-0 record, all coming by way of knockout. In fact only three opponents have made it past the second round and none have made it out of the fourth. In December, 2012, Wilder defeated Kelvin Price by third round knockout to claim the vacant WBC Continental Americas Heavyweight title, his first belt as a professional.
Standing at 6’7, Wilder’s physical stature is undeniably imposing; however those close to him know Deontay as a caring individual. Twice Wilder has fought in his hometown of Tuscaloosa, AL in order to raise money for families affected by numerous storms and tornados in the region.
