Deontay Wilder: Record, Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

Deontay Wilder is an American professional boxer who lost his WBC heavyweight title that he held from 2015 to 2020. Tyson Fury, coming back after a two-year-long hiatus caused a major upset early this year, dropping Wilder twice, forcing his cornermen to throw in the towel in the seventh round. Following his loss to The Gypsy King, Wilder stands at P3 when it comes to the top-ranking heavyweights in the boxing circuit, as per the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board. Whereas he stands at P4 and P5 according to The Ring Magazine and Boxrec, respectively.

Deontay Wilder: Record

The Bronze Bomber made his debut in the professional circuit at the age of 23, back in 2008. He took on Ethan Cox, taking the win by a TKO in the second round, after having knocked him to the canvas thrice. The following year, Wilder took on 7 opponents, bringing each fight to an end in the first round itself. By mid-October in 2012, Wilder had racked up an astonishing streak of 25 wins, having ended each fight via knockout.

In addition, none of these fights went beyond the fourth round. Wilder became the first American heavyweight to win the WBC title, since Hasim Rehman, by drawing a victory over Bermane Stiverne. Wilder went on to win the U.S. Olympic trials and earned a bronze medal at the 2008 Beijing Games. It was the only medal that came back to the U.S. in boxing.

Deontay Wilder: Net Worth

“The Bronze Bomber” has an estimated net worth of $30 million. He reportedly made $4 million in his first Fury fight with an additional PPV bonus. He stands to make $5 million from the rematch along with the PPV cut.
