On October 9, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury went to war. Both heavyweights put on a show for the ages that night. ‘The Bronze Bomber’ coming back from a knockdown in round 3 by dropping Fury twice in round 4 seemed almost unreal.

‘The Gypsy King’ won via 11th round knockout; however, many were left impressed by Deontay Wilder‘s show of heart and his indomitable spirit. The Alabama native won the hearts of many with his determination and warrior spirit.

Today, Deontay Wilder has turned a year older. At 36, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ is considered to be one of the greatest heavyweights of all time and even a “murderous puncher” by many.

While he has 42 wins with 41 knockouts, he has only two blemishes on his otherwise neat record. The only draw on his record and both of his losses have come from a single source – the current WBC champion, Tyson Fury.

Twitter wishes and mocks Deontay Wilder on his 36th birthday

Twitter exploded right after Tyson Fury knocked out his opponent; many jumped on their keyboards and started mocking, insulting, and disrespecting Deontay Wilder. Some called him a “sore loser”, “clown” and some even mocked him for coming up with a new “excuse” for his second loss to Fury.

Deontay Wilder went to war, bled, and inspired millions to never back down from any challenge in life.

On his 36th birthday, Twitter wished the former WBC champ a happy birthday; however, even nearly two weeks later, Wilder critics are still not quite done –
