Deontay Leshun Wilder (born October 22, 1985) is an American professional boxer. He has held the WBC heavyweight title since 2015, and in doing so became the first American world heavyweight champion in nine years, which was the longest period of time in boxing history without an American heavyweight champion. As an amateur he won a bronze medal in the heavyweight division at the 2008 Olympics. This led to his nickname of "The Bronze Bomber", which Wilder coined after Joe Louis, who was known by the nickname of "The Brown Bomber".

Wilder is known for having finished all but one of his fights inside the distance; his knockout-to-win ratio is currently 97.3%, with 18 knockouts in the first round. As of June 2017 he is ranked as the world's third best heavyweight by The Ring magazine, behind Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua and the fourth best by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and BoxRec.

Amateur career [ edit ]

Wilder started boxing in October 2005 when he entered Skyy Boxing Gym in Northport, Alabama and began training under Jay Deas. Wilder was 19 at that time.

By 2007 he upset the favorites to win both the National Golden Gloves and the US championships at 201 lb (91 kg).

At the Golden Gloves he defeated highly touted cadet world champion Isiah Thomas - a southpaw from Detroit - and David Thompson, of Brooklyn, N.Y in the finals. At the U.S. championship he defeated Quantis Graves and won the final 31-15 over southpaw James Zimmerman of San Jose, Calif.

At the Olympic trials he beat Graves twice more and won the Olympic trials in only 21 bouts. Early in 2008 he scored a career-best win by edging out World Gold medalist and future Olympic champion Rakhim Chakhiyev in Russia. He qualified for the Olympics by beating Deivis Julio 6:5 Jorge Quinones from Ecuador on double countback and Brazilian Rafael Lima 6:5 at the qualifier.

Wilder then competed at heavyweight in the 2008 Olympics, defeating Abdelaziz Touilbini of Algeria and Mohamed Arjaoui of Morocco before losing to Clemente Russo of Italy in the semi final to earn a bronze medal. [1]

Wilder had an approximate amateur record of 30-5. [2] [3]

Professional career [ edit ]

Early career [ edit ]

Wilder made his debut at the age of 23 on November 15, 2008 at the Vanderbilt University Memorial Gymnasium in Nashville, Tennessee. He knocked out Ethan Cox in the second round. Cox was knocked down three times in the second round before the fight was eventually stopped. Wilder fought seven times in 2009, winning all the fights in round 1. [6] By October 2012, Wilder racked up an impressive 25-fight win streak, winning all by knockout and all within four rounds. Some notable stoppages included former WBA heavyweight title challenger Owen Beck (27-10, 20 KOs), former WBO light heavyweight title challenger DeAndrey Abron (15-6, 10 KOs) and former WBO heavyweight challenger Damon Reed (46-15, 32 KOs). [7] [8]

Wilder won his first title in professional boxing when he knocked out then unbeaten 37 year old Kelvin Price (13-0, 6 KOs) at the Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles, on December 15, 2012. Wilder fought patiently through the first two rounds and mostly measured Price. The fight ended when a right hand from Wilder caught Price on the jaw and sent him back into the ropes and down. He attempted to get to his feet, but struggled which led referee Ray Corona to wave an end to the bout. Wilder claimed the vacant WBC Continental Americas heavyweight title, which he went on to successfully defend twice. [9]

Wilder vs. Harrison [ edit ]

On April 27, 2013 Wilder knocked out former European heavyweight champion and Olympic gold medalist Audley Harrison (31-6, 23 KOs) in Sheffield, on his UK debut. Harrison was coming into this fight looking to rebuild after winning the prizefighter heavyweight tournament two months prior. Wilder found an opening 49 seconds into the opening round and caught Harrison with a big right hand that rocked him back into the ropes. A follow up barrage from Wilder sent Harrison into the corner, crumpling onto the floor. Harrison used the ropes to get to his feet at the count of eight, but referee Terry O'Connor waved an end to the bout. The official time of stoppage was 1:22 of the first round. Four days after the fight, Harrison announced his retirement at the age of 41 years. [10] [11] [12]

Wilder vs. Liakhovich [ edit ]

Wilder knocked out former WBO heavyweight champion Sirahei Liakhovich (25-5, 16 KOs) in the first round on August 9, 2013, the fight was the main event of a Showtime card. The fight took place at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. Liakhovich was fighting for the first time in nearly a year and half. Wilder caught Liakhovich with a big right hand, while Liakhovich was backed against the ropes, he went down heavily and began twitching. The referee waved an end to the bout without beginning a count. Liakhovich was kept down for some time in the ring, before being helped to a stool. [13] [14] Wilder and Golden Boy Promotions had been in talks with Dereck Chisora about a potential fight in England, but that fell through after Wilder was arrested in May following a domestic assault in Las Vegas, Nevada. [15]

Wilder vs. Scott [ edit ]

In February 2014 it was announced that Wilder would fight 33 year old American boxer Malik Scott (36-1-1, 13 KOs) in an eliminator for the WBC heavyweight title. The fight took place on the undercard of Garcia-Herrera at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Puerto Rico on March 15. [16] When the fight was first announced, Wilder was #3 in the WBC ratings while Scott was #26. By the time the fight took place, Wilder was still ranked #3 and Scott was ranked #23. Wilder knocked out Scott at 1:36 of the first round. Wilder started off with slow jabs and the knockout blow appeared to be a straight right hand, which many believe didn't connect clearly. There was an instant reaction from the crowd and on social media regarding how the fight ended. Scott was said to be unhappy about reports that he took a dive and congratulated Wilder. [17] [18] [19] This set Wilder up as mandatory challenger for the WBC heavyweight title held by new champion Bermane Stiverne, who had defeated Chris Arreola for the title vacated by the retiring Vitali Klitschko.

In August 2014, Wilder fought journeyman and former Prizefighter finalist Jason Gavern (25-16-4, 11 KOs) in a 10-round bout. The fight was to take place at the StubHub Center in Carson, California on the undercard of the IBF welterweight fight between Shawn Porter and Kell Brook fight. [20] Gavern was knocked down in rounds three and four. His corner threw in the towel after round four giving Wilder another stoppage victory in as many fights. [21] [22]

WBC heavyweight champion [ edit ]

Wilder vs. Stiverne [ edit ]

After beating fellow American Malik Scott by first-round knockout in March 2014, [23] this set up his position as mandatory challenger for the WBC heavyweight title held by new champion Bermane Stiverne, who had defeated Chris Arreola for the title vacated by the retiring Vitali Klitschko. In January 2015, billed as 'Return to Glory' , Wilder fought Stiverne at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and made his dream a reality by winning the WBC heavyweight title from the defending champion by unanimous decision after twelve rounds. The three official judges scored it (118-109, 119-108, 120-107). Stiverne landed 110 of 327 punches (34%) with Wilder landing 227 of 621 punches (37%). Wilder had some big rounds, particularly rounds 2 and 7, where he threw a barrage of power shots. Wilder showed that he could go 12 rounds and utilized his jab throughout. [24] This was the first real proof to critics that Wilder could go the distance and could box, as up to that point he had finished all opponents inside the distance. After the fight, Wilder dedicated his win to his disabled daughter, and to his boxing hero Muhammad Ali, who had turned 73 years old that same day. [25] The fight averaged 1.24 million viewers, peaking at 1.34 million on Showtime. [26] According to the NSAC, Wilder earned $1 million and Stiverne received $910,000. [27]

Wilder vs. Molina, Duhaupas [ edit ]

On June 13, 2015 Wilder made his first defense of his new title against Eric Molina (23-2, 17 KOs) at Bartow Arena, Birmingham, Alabama. This was the first heavyweight title fight held in the state of Alabama with an attendance of 9,347. Molina was aiming to become the first Mexican-American World Heavyweight champion in history. Wilder dominated, knocking down Molina near the end of round four, twice in the fifth, and knocking him out on his back in the ninth round. Wilder had respect for Molina after the bout, stating "I was really surprised he kept coming and hanging in there. A lot of people said he wouldn't even be around, he wouldn't last. There were a lot of doubters, but he showed a lot of heart, and I needed that kind of guy to fight here in Alabama." Wilder was ahead on all three judges scorecards at the time of stoppage (90-77, 89-78 twice). According to Compubox Punch stats, Wilder landed 141 of 303 thrown (47%) whilst Molina landed just 49 of 188 (26%). [28] [29] [30] The fight aired on Showtime and averaged 678,000 viewers. [31] Wilder earned $1.4 Million for the fight compared to Molina, who received a $250,000 purse. [32]

On September 26, in front of a hometown crowd of 8,471 in attendance, Wilder beat French boxer Johann Duhaupas (32-2, 20 KOs) by TKO in the 11th round at the Legacy Arena, Alabama. Duhaupas, who was battered and bloodied claimed he still had plenty of fight left when referee Jack Reiss waved off his brave challenge. Duhaupas had never been stopped before in his career inside the distance. It was a very one sided fight, after taking punishment in round 7, referee Jack Reiss went over to Duhaupas' corner telling him he would need to do more or he would stop the fight. Wilder was ahead on all judges scorecards at the time of stoppage (100-90, 99-90, 99-91). Wilder landed 326 of 587 punches thrown (56%), whilst Duhaupas landed 98 of 332 (30%). In the post fight, Wilder praised Duhaupas' toughness, "We knew he was tough. We knew he was mentally tough. We knew he was going to come. That's why you can't criticize nobody you don't know. The most scariest people are the ones you don't know." [33] [34] For the fight, Wilder made $1.4 million and Duhaupas earned a $140,000 purse. [35] The fight was the main even of Premier Boxing Champions on NBC and averaged 2.2 million viewers, peaking at 3 million viewers. [36]

Wilder made his third defense on January 16, 2016 against Polish boxer Artur Szpilka (20-1, 15 KOs) at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York in front of 12,668 mostly pro-Polish fans. Szpilka looked very strong as the bout began, and won the first three rounds with his awkward southpaw stance, rapid foot movement, and unique talent of slipping punches. Szpilka made Wilder appear somewhat wild with his punches, as Wilder missed 175 punches thrown at Szpilka, mostly head punches. Entering round nine, Szpilka, aware from the ring commentators he could no longer win the fight on the cards, changed strategy and took a gamble. Going to the inside, Szpilka swung for the rafters, but Wilder, read Szpilka and landed first with a powerful right hand to the face. Szpilka fell suddenly to the canvas knocked out, both fighters appeared horribly out of position. Unconscious on the canvas, Szpilka's head jerked backwards in a reflex motion, the frightful moment abruptly ending the competitive contest and sending the ringside physicians and emergency medical personnel immediately into the ring. Wilder reportedly earned a career-high $1.5 Million compared to Szpilka who had a $250,000 purse. [32]

After the fight, newly crowned heavyweight champion Tyson Fury entered the ring going face to face in a heated verbal exchange with Wilder, calling him out. In the post fight press conference, WIlder gave himself a 5 on a scale of 10 for his performance. Wilder was not in a celebratory mood and claimed his concerns for Szpilka meant he was not in the mood for the confrontation with Fury at the time. The bout over, Wilder explained " We risk our lives in there for your entertainment. I want to knock my opponents out, but not hurt them. I want them to be able to go home to their family. " Fortunately, Szpilka regained consciousness before leaving the ring on a stretcher, and recovered. [37] The knockout was voted 'Knockout of The Year' by Premier Boxing Champions. [38]

Wilder vs. Povetkin cancelled fight [ edit ]

Wilder was due to make the fourth defense of his WBC heavyweight title against former WBA champion and mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin (30-1, 22 KOs) on 21 May 2016 at the Megasport Arena in Moscow, Russia. Povetkin was considered by many to be Wilder's toughest opponent to date, and was on a four-fight knockout streak since suffering his only defeat to Wladimir Klitschko in late 2013. [39] Wilder didn't seem to be worried by the defense and saw this as a big name in the Heavyweight division that he could add to his legacy, "Going to Russia is going to be nothing for me, I'm going to treat it like it's the U.S. because at the end of the day, it's one man, one ring. When I knock him out and come back, it's going to bring my legacy even bigger than it is now." He also added, "I think this is going to be an easier fight than Stiverne, I really believe that. To be proven wrong, we're going to find out." [40]

However, a week before the fight on May 14, it was reported that Povetkin had tested positive for the banned substance meldonium. Promotor Andrei Ryabinsky added that Povetkin did take meldonium 2015, but stopped before it was banned, and only "leftover traces of meldonium at a very low concentration (70 nanograms)" were found in a blood sample given by the 36-year-old last month. [41] [42] Hours after Wilder and his team skipped their flight to Moscow, the WBC, having little choice with the titleholder preparing to return home, to postponed the fight. [43] [44] Jay Deas, Wilder's manager and trainer, said the fight is off as did promoter Lou DiBella. Andrey Ryabinskiy, promoter for Povetkin, claimed the fight would take place at a later date. [45] Wilder claimed he is still interested in fighting and beating Povetkin in the future, as this was a fight he trained hard for and was hoping to make a statement against an elite heavyweight. [46] On February 14, 2017 Wilder won $7 million in court over the cancellation of the fight. [47] [48]

Wilder vs. Arreola [ edit ]

Wilder made the fourth defense of his WBC heavyweight title against former two-time world heavyweight title challenger Chris Arreola (36-4-1-2, 31 KOs). The bout took place on July 16, 2016 at the Legacy Arena, Birmingham, Alabama. For the fight, Wilder wore white trunks with black trim, featuring a portrait of his personal idol and the late heavyweight boxing legend Muhammad Ali. The attendance at the arena was announced 11,974. Wilder dominated the entire fight with his sharp jab, which caused severe swelling to Arreola's left eye. In the fourth round, Wilder connected with a heavy right cross that knocked Arreola down. Finally, after eight one-sided rounds, Arreola's cornermen informed the referee to stop the contest. The official verdict, an eight-round retirement victory for Wilder. After the fight, Wilder stated he had broke his right hand and tore his biceps during the fight. Wilder was ahead (80-71, 80-71, 79-72) on the scorecards at the time of stoppage. According to CompuBox statistics, Wilder landed 152 of 346 punches (44 percent), and Arreola landed 52 of 188 (28 percent). [49] For the fight, Wilder earned $1.4 Million to $150,000 which was received by Arreola. [32]

According to promoter Lou DiBella, Wilder spent most of the night at UAB Hospital. He would be back at the hospital soon, likely for two surgeries, one to repair each injury. This ruled him out for the remainder of 2016. "Deontay is definitely out for the remainder of the year, but we will know more in the next few days," DiBella said. [50]

Wilder vs. Washington [ edit ]

Wilder announced in November that he had fully recovered and was back in training following surgery. His return fight would likely be early 2017. [51] In December, Peter Fury announced there were active talks to get Hughie Fury a world title fight against Wilder for the first quarter of 2017. Fury wouldn't be considered as a voluntary due to being ranked at number 26 by the WBC, but Peter hoped Fury would be bumped into the top 15 after the WBC convention in December. [52]

On December 21, 2016, according to Wilder's manager Jay Deas, there were advance talks for a fight to take place on February 25, 2017, at the Legacy Arena in Alabama against 29 year old two-time Polish heavyweight champion and former world title challenger Andrzej Wawrzyk (33-1, 19 KOs). [53] [54] Wawrzyk was on a six-fight knockout streak, with a win in his most recent fight over veteran Albert Sosnowski, since losing his only fight to Alexander Povetkin, inside the distance in May 2013. Terms were agreed to a day later as the date and venue were confirmed on December 29. [55] [56] After announcing Wawrzyk as his opponent, Wilder received criticism from fellow boxers, boxing experts and fans for choosing "an easy fight", having yet another voluntary defence and not fighting a top level heavyweight. On December 29, Wilder spoke about the criticism, not believing Wawrzyk should be written off, stating, “I don’t believe ‘You’re going to suck because I don’t know you’, that’s just the ignorance of your average boxing fan ... I wish fans would stop criticizing fighters because it takes a lot to get in the ring.” Wilder used Manny Pacquiao as an example for when he was little known. [57] [58]

On January 25, 2017, it was reported that Wawrzyk had failed a drug test, ruling him out of the fight. With a month to go until the fight, Wilder was determined that he would find a replacement to fight him on short notice and not postpone the fight card. [59] [60] Luis Ortiz put himself forward for the fight only to be shot down due to him failing drug tests in the past. [61] Tyson Fury also put himself forward. [62] A day later it was reported that 35 year old Gerald Washington (18-0-1, 12 KOs) was in the lead of landing the world title fight. [63] It was announced on January 30, 2017, that Washington would face Wilder on February 25th. [64]

Wilder won by TKO in round 5. Washington started off strong with power punches as Wilder moved around with jabs. Midway through the 5th, Wilder got Washington against the ropes and landed a combination of power shots, the last shot being a left to the head of Washington, dropping him backwards against the ropes. Washington recovered quickly on unsteady legs. The fight resumed, and Wilder unloaded heavy blows the head of Washington eventually leading referee Michael Griffin to halt the fight at 1 minute and 45 seconds of the round. [65] Wilder credited his patience in the post fight interview, “I knew he was going to come in excited to fight for a world title. I just kept calm and found my rhythm. I knew he was going to tire out, and when he did, I took advantage. It was all about timing. I’m very smart in the ring when it comes to using different tactics.” [66] [67] Washington earned $250,000 from the fight while Wilder earned $900,000. [68] The fight was televised on Fox in the USA and was watched by an average audience of 1.76 million viewers, peaking at 1.86 million. The bout was the most watched boxing match in the United States for 2017, until the Thurman-Garcia unification fight drew 3.74 million on March 4. [69] [70]

Following the fight, there was an altercation between Wilder and Dominic Breazeale, who had knocked out Izuagbe Ugonoh on the undercard. Breazeale claimed that Wilder and his entourage attacked him in front of his wife at the Westin Birmingham hotel. This came after Breazeale supposedly had a fracas with Wilder's younger brother, Marsellos, at ringside during Wilder's fight. [71] [72]

Wilder vs. Stiverne II [ edit ]

On February 27, 2017, the World Boxing Council ordered Wilder to fight mandatory challenger Bermane Stiverne, with negotiations to begin immediately. [73] [74] On July 18, 2017 it was reported that a deal was being worked out for Wilder to make his sixth defense of his WBC title against heavyweight contender Luis Ortiz (27-0, 23 KOs, 2 NC). Wilder's promoter Lou DiBella, had put the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on hold for October 14 and November 4, 2017. According to sources, Don King, promoter of Bermaine Stiverne, mandatory challenger for Wilder, had reported to be working out a step a side fee from Wilder and Ortiz's advisor Al Haymon.

Stiverne announced he had hired James Prince and attorney Josh Dubin as his managers, who were best known to have worked for Andre Ward, Shakur Stevenson and Bryant Jennings. Stiverne told Boxing Scene that Don King had not been given any permission to negotiate a step a side fee and he would work with his management team to ensure he challenges for the WBC title in his next fight. [75] It was reported by VADA, who oversees the WBC Clean Boxing Programme, that Stiverne missed a drug test. The WBC treated this as failing a drug test. [76] WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman worked on a deal to finalise Wilder vs. Ortiz for November 4, 2017. According to TheRing.tv, Stiverne agreed a mid six-figure payday to allow the fight to take place. [77] In a phone interview, Stiverne mentioned the step-a-side fee and reported he could fight former world title challenger Dominic Breazeale next. [78] On September 12, it was reported by Showtime that the fight was a done deal, awaiting official announcement for the fight to take place on November 4 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Showtime revealed the card would include Daniel Jacobs as chief support. [79] On September 18, the fight was made official pending the official press conference, which would take place the next day. [80] ESPN was advised that Stiverne would fight Breazeale on the undercard in a title eliminator. [81] It was reported on September 29, Ortiz had failed a drugs test, which was carried out by VADA, part of the WBC clean programme. It was believed that the drugs in question were diuretics chlorothaizide and hydrochlorothiazide, which are used to treat high blood pressure but also can be used as masking agents for performance-enhancing drug use. A urine sample was taken on September 22 in Miami. Ortiz never informed VADA that he had been on medication. [82]

On October 4, the WBC withdrew it's sanction on the Wilder vs. Ortiz fight and immediately ordered Wilder to fight mandatory Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs). [83] The very next day, Showtime announced the fight. [84] At the press conference, Wilder claimed that he was happy to be getting Stiverne out of the way. [85] Stiverne officially signed the contract on October 17, his managers Josh Dubin and James Prince confirmed. [86]

Personal life [ edit ]

Wilder has two daughters and two sons, and has been married to Jessica Scales-Wilder since 2009. [87] He graduated from Tuscaloosa Central High School in 2004 and dreamed of playing football (wide receiver) or basketball (forward) for his hometown Alabama Crimson Tide, but the birth of his daughter, who suffers from spina bifida and grade issues forced him to attend nearby Shelton State Community College and to focus on a boxing career. [88]

Controversies [ edit ]

On May 4, 2013, Wilder was arrested in Las Vegas for domestic battery by strangulation, which is a Class B or Class C felony. [89] Wilder's attorney said, "Deontay instinctively acted under the false impression that someone was stealing from him. That wasn't the case. He regrets his actions. He is extremely regretful because this is not consistent with his reputation. He and the victim have spoken about this and the victim has accepted his apology. We hope this matter will be brought to a resolution soon". [90] According to Clark County, Nevada records, Wilder was cleared in the matter.

Wilder was arrested on June 14, 2017 and charged with possession of marijuana in his hometown of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, although he was released later on a bond of $1,000. [91] Reports confirmed that the drug was found in his car and that he had been pulled over on violation of his window tints. His attorney claimed the marijuana was not his and someone had used his car while he was out of town. [92]
