Wilder builds on strong amateur background

Deontay Wilder's amateur career took him to the 2008 Olympic Games, where he won a bronze medal in Beijing.

Twelve months earlier, the American had won a Golden Gloves medal in Chattanooga and, after his success in China, he soon decided to turn professional.

His debut came in Tennessee in November 2008, and his second-round victory over Ethan Cox was the start of a hugely successful career.

Wilder won the first 40 fights of his career, with only one of his opponents able to reach the final bell.

Wilder digs deep to clinch first world title

Alabama native Wilder claimed his first world title in 2015 when he beat Bermane Stiverne on points for the WBC heavyweight title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Stiverne had held the title for less than a year after his win over Chris Arreola, but Wilder proved too much for him as he did enough to convince the judges.

Wilder held on to the WBC strap until 2020, and he even managed to add Stiverne to his list of knockout victims, stopping him in 2017.

Fury proves to be Wilder's nemesis

None of Wilder's first 40 opponents had any answers for his power and durability, but his winning run came to an end in 2018 when he faced British heavyweight Tyson Fury for the first time.

Fury outboxed his rival, but had to climb off the canvas before the fight was called a draw. Wilder returned to winning ways by stopping Dominic Breazeale and then Luis Ortiz, before Fury stopped him in their second fight in 2020 and then again in 2021.

Despite losing, Wilder played his part in one of boxing's best trilogies for many years, and he showed in all of those fights how tough and menacing he is, despite being nearly 40.

Wilder bounced back at the first opportunity last year, stopping Robert Helenius inside the first round of their contest in Brooklyn.

Wilder lost his next two fights after the win over Helenius, being defeated by Joseph Parker via unanimous decision and getting knocked out by Zhilei Zhang. All four of his professional losses have come within his five most recent fights.
