Six More Years Of Wilder
At 34-years old, Deontay Wilder believes he will hold on to the heavyweight throne just a little longer.
“Six years is my max that I’m planning to finish my career,” the current WBC world heavyweight champion said during a recent media workout for his November 23rd Fox Sports Pay-Per-View. “It’s a beautiful thing to have the team I started with to be the team that I finish with.”
“In the beginning of my career, we had a plan of things to move forward with,” Wilder said of his team that includes Jay Deas, Mark Breland, Shelly Finkel, and Al Haymon. “I can’t say things went exactly as planned. In life, things don’t go as planned. It’s a great to be with a group of guys that have my best interest at heart. The people who were planning the beginning of my career are planning the ending as well. I think the ending is going to be a little bit sweeter than the beginning.
“In the beginning you have a long task ahead of you and you don’t know where the roads will lead. I did the best I can in the heavyweight division. I brought a lot of excitement. I bring a lot of drama.”
“My passion is acting,” Wilder said in a story reported earlier this week that he wanted the role of Adonis Creed’s rival in the third Creed movie. “I’m doing things thus far and I’ve been killing it. I’m looking forward to do more in the acting field.
“I’m also a certified scuba diver. I’m looking forward to spending time with my family, watching my kids grow.”
