In his Instagram post, he shared a video of dirt track racing at top speed. There are several risks attached to driving a mud buggy at top speed.

Given that there’s a mega championship fight fuelled by bad blood and tension on the line, this was an even riskier thing to do. Luckily, Deontay Wilder exited the dirt track uninjured and unscathed.

Being in the best shape of his life, he is now looking to regain his WBC heavyweight title and then climb the ranks in the division towards Anthony Joshua‘s current throne.

What will the heavyweight division look like after Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3?

Before ‘The Bronze Bomber’ and Tyson Fury head into battle on October 9, there is another heavyweight clash that could set the division’s narrative for the next few months.

Two-time unified heavyweight world champion, Anthony Joshua is now all set to take on the undisputed cruiserweight champion, Oleksandr Usyk. The two are scheduled to fight on September 25 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
