‘It’s Time To Teach Other Boxers How To Become A Champion’  –Wilder’s Mother

Deontay Wilder’s mother, Deborah Wilder, has urged him to quit boxing in order to teach other younger men how to become a champion.

Recall that Wilder was stopped in the fifth round after being countered by Zhang’s right hook, followed by another right hand.

It was Wilder’s second consecutive loss following his defeat to Joseph Parker. It also meant Wilder had one win in his last five fights, the 2022 win over Robert Helenius.

Speaking with boxing news, his mother encouraged him to enjoy his life at this point in time.

“I texted him and said, ‘Son, we’re having a party for you. You gave us the best boxing in USA when boxing was dead. You’ve gotten older. You’ve ran your course in your journey. It’s time to celebrate.

“He brought back boxing to the USA, and we enjoyed all those knockouts. I taped them and I’m going to look back at them. We gonna to laugh, we gonna to cry. But we gonna be happy. Enjoy your life now. Teach other young men how to become a champion,” Deborah Wilder.

The Bronze Bomber looked far from the man once considered the dangerous knockout artist in the division.

    He was never a dangerous man, he was over hyped, and way too overrated. Wilder beating all those guys, what do you expect? It’s just like Abia Utd on a tour of all elementary schools, after defeating all the elementary school teams by 6,7,8,9 or 10 to 0, you then start talking about how great a team Abia United is.

    Guys you need to check out the profile of all the people Walder fought, majority of them rank between 200 to 400+. Tyson Fury and Lewis Ortiz are the only individuals ranked among the top 10 that shared the ring with Walder. However, Ortiz was already declining while Fury was inactive for three years, addicted to alcohol, white powder drug and had ballooned to 600 pounds which was the only reason Walder approached him for the fight. He anticipated an easy win, and to have a recognizable heavy weight fighter on his record, but we all know how that turned out.

    Walder never should have been overrated like he was, he is so arrogantly one dimensional because of how over hyped his punching power was, and was not ready to learn to be a boxer
