Deontay Wilder suffered a lopsided defeat to Tyson Fury in his last boxing appearance. It was also his maiden defeat as a professional. Post this defeat, he provided several excuses for his loss. One of them was his heavy walkout costume.

Throughout the fight, Wilder wobbled, and his legs didn’t seem stable. He claimed his walkout costume caused that. Hence, ahead of the rematch, one thing fans are curious to know about is his walkout costume.

Recently, Marc Raimondi of ESPN Tweeted about the same. He wrote, “Deontay Wilder will walk out for his trilogy fight with Tyson Fury in a costume heavy in black and red colors with imported fabric from Africa, an homage to his roots with Nigeria’s Edo tribe.”

Later, in a video released on YouTube by FightHype, fans can see Wilder in this unusual costume which had umpteen laser lights.

Given ‘The Bronze Bomber’s complaints, the makers of his new walkout gear would have worked specifically on the weight of the costume, as a flamboyant robe shouldn’t hamper a pugilist’s ability within the ropes.

Regardless of any walkout costume or pre-fight buildup, Wilder will keep his prime focus on his slated 12-round war. Over the past few months, he’s worked extremely hard and on October 9, he will look to showcase his skills at one go.

Wilder, his training videos, showed surreal movements alongside variations in his punches. In his second contest with Fury, the Alabama native didn’t throw a lot of jabs. But he worked on the same with his new trainer, Malik Scott.

That said, the ex-champ will come in fully prepared for this fight and he will look to make the most out of his time inside the ring.
