WBC heavyweight champion Deontay WIlder caused controversy this week when he publicly announced on a live radio show (The Breakfast Club) that he wanted a body on his record, in the interview Wilder states this is due to his persona ‘The Bronze Bomber’ and when he enters the ring he becomes that person.

The WBC have stated they are investigating the matter and have labelled the comment inappropriate and against their codes of conduct, the comment has been met with outrage across the sport particular in light of recent and tragic deaths within the sport.
