A year ago, Deontay Wilder succumbed to his maiden defeat and lost his WBC world title. Prior to facing ‘The Gypsy King’, the Alabama native had one of the most dominant and pertinent boxing runs that helped him become the scariest heavyweight of all time. But with this loss, all of his hard work went in vain.

Post that fight, Wilder also broke into the news headlines as he accused Tyson Fury of cheating and winning. He even complained about spiked water, which later accrued immense backlash from fans and fighters.

Recently, ‘The Bronze Bomber’, who spoke to 78 Sports TV, commented on fighters cheating. He said, “All these guys juicing and doing all this cheating and stuff. It’s just ridiculous man. You know sometimes I just like, dang, I can’t wait to the point in time where I do retire. You know, I’m not gonna look back and I don’t think I’m gonna miss it because of what these guys are doing in the sport.”
