Deontay Wilder is known for incredible punching power which is reflected in his ‘Bronze Bomber’ nickname.
Wilder is most known for an epic trilogy with Tyson Fury where he achieved the insane feat of knocking down the seemingly indestructible Fury twice.
Though, this wasn’t enough to record a a victory over ‘The Gypsy King’.
Opponents have learned to fear the wild right hand of Deontay as one punch could turn the lights out for anyone.
In fact, Wilder has won 42 of the 45 fights in his career and 41 of those 42 wins have come by knockout. This sets the Bronze Bomber out from the rest with an insane 97.61% knockout-to-win percentage.
Now, the heavy-handed fighter appears to be training hard for his next bout. On October 15, Wilder will step back in the ring to battle Robert Helenius in his first fight since the trilogy loss.
Fans of the Bronze Bomber are excited at the confirmation of another fight since Deontay consider all his options before committing to the date, including potential retirement.
As with most fighters with a fresh bout coming up, training footage has emerged.
Deontay has been working on his game at the UFC’s state-of-the-art training facility, which he hopes will boost his chances of victory on his return to the ring. Though, it seems no one is safe from the unnerving power of Wilder.
One of his trainers, Don House, who was holding pads for the American star, ended up catching the full force of an uppercut.
As soon as the pad man felt the impact, it unsurprisingly rocked him. But, what may be more surprising, is that the trainer was able to carry on following the blow.
He even shook it off and said ‘Don’t worry, keep going. I ain’t knocked out. I’m rolling with it’.
While the uppercut was accidental, the blow was still extremely powerful. It could be compared to the kind of blows that Fury somehow ate and continued battling against.
This clip certainly heaps praise on the type of company Wilder likes to keep in the build up to his fights, showing that even his team are tough.
