35 Inspirational Deontay Wilder Quotes On Success

Deontay Wilder 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 particularly known for his formidable punching power, having finished all but two of his fights inside the distance. His knockout-to-win ratio stands at 95%, with 19 knockouts in the first round.
