Former world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is convinced that there is racism in boxing, as a result of which the media speaks too flattering of white fighters.

“For me, the most important thing is to build my legacy. I say that I am the best, and I know it. I am ready to test myself with anyone who thinks he is better than me. I give fans what they want to see, no matter how there was a result – victory, defeat or a draw, for this I am engaged in this sport and therefore I need my opponent to feel the same way.

All these fighters avoid each other. We have all these guys with white privilege who are portrayed by the media as being more important and better than others when they are not. They are trying to promote this narrative, and this happens to black fighters all the time. This is crazy, especially with me. But I am surrounded by positive and a lot of love. In this situation with the arbitration court, I was just practicing. We trained, concentrated and received love from the family, “- said Deontay Wilder in an interview with YouTube channel 78SPORTSTV.

We will remind, Wilder also said that he was confident in the victory in the arbitration court over Tyson Fury.
