Deontay Wilder reveals the hardest match after the matches against Haye and Klitschko

Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has battled multiple world champions but made an unexpected pick for his toughest bout.

The ‘Bronze Bomber’ took down all but one of his forty-two opponents, only Tyson Fury was able to avoid scoring. Wilder has forty-two knockouts in forty-three wins, winning only once when he beat Bermane Stiverne in 2015, whom he later knocked out in the first round in 2017.

You would think that it would be difficult for Wilder to find a partner willing to fencing, but The Tuscaloosa gathered the likes of Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye to help prepare for the battles.

In an interview with ES . NewsWilder, somewhat surprised, revealed that Alonzo Butler was his toughest tennis player to date.

“I had a really good and solid fight with Alonzo Butler, Big Zo. Big Zo is the fastest heavyweight I’ve ever seen, for his size he weighs 250 lbs, but he can move.

If he had managed and handled better, he could have become the heavyweight champion of the world. When I arrived and saw him, I was impressed. I looked at him like ‘damn, I want to be like that’.

“Alonzo is a man, he was the first person I felt shot at and I learned a lot from him during that time.”

Hailing from Tennessee, Butler currently holds the 34-3-2 record, but at 43, it’s safe to say he won’t get that chance to challenge for a world title.

Wilder, on the other hand, is just two games away from reclaiming his WBC title, as he prepares to face Andy Ruiz Jr in the final elimination match for the title of Tyson Fury.
