Deontay Wilder: I’m reintroducing myself to the world
“The weight just came on,” Wilder said about his weight. “I wanted to look sexy and feel sexy. I taste sexy as well.”
“I’m bench-pressing over 350 pounds. So no matter what weight he’s coming in, I can lay on my back and lift him. So it won’t be none of that rushing me and putting all this weight on me and different things like that.”
Talking about the fight camp and what he expects from the matchup, Wilder said: “We have rejuvenated myself. We reinvented myself. Redemption is upon us. And I can’t wait to show the world what I’m all about. I’m reintroducing myself to the world as Deontay Wilder.”
