Deontay Wilder and Cam Wilder don’t share any relation with each other. Yet, they make sure to rule their verticals with sheer hard work.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ ranks among the greatest heavyweights of all time. His knockout ratio stands at 93.18% which is the highest among all the active heavyweights.

The above number itself is proof of what ‘The Bronze Bomber’ brings to the table. However, there’s a slight blemish in his resume, which came in through a loss against Tyson Fury in 2020. Despite that, Wilder’s accolades in the sport are far more than this one loss he suffered.
