Media Review: Deontay Wilder has made the right decision


IT’S old news by now, but it’s still worth mentioning Deontay Wilder’s baffling excuse for his punishing loss to Tyson Fury; the costume he wore to the ring. The former champ claimed to Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports that the 40-pound piece of kit sapped all his energy as he walked to the ring wearing it, leaving him a lamb to the slaughter.

In the ring immediately after the right, Wilder was mainly magnanimous in defeat, but just a few days later he was spouting this drivel. It also throws into contrast Anthony Joshua’s admirable behaviour after his loss to Andy Ruiz last year – no excuses, besides mention of health concerns that he refused to detail.
