Fans Compare Deontay Wilder To Borat After His Shocking Attempt To Do An English Accent

Deontay Wilder put on his best attempts of doing an English accent recently, only for it to sound more like Borat rather than what he intended to pull off.

Well, that's how fans feel after the 33-year-old Alabama-born boxer appeared on Showtime and tried to do an English accent.

The Bronze Bomber might have a knack for knocking his opponents out, but he might want to leave the English accent off his CV.

Check it out below.

"I'm pretty sure that is an American doing an impression of an English person doing an impression of a Swedish person speaking English," one Twitter user wrote.

Someone else said: "I'd like to know which part of the UK he's been visiting."

Another boxing fan added: "Like Downton Abbey meets TOWIE."

A fourth wrote in response to the video: "I'm trying to put subtitles on his videos."

Wilder is preparing for his upcoming fight against Dominic Breazeale on 18th May, which will take place at the Barclays Center in New York City for the WBC Heavyweight Championship.

However, the American boxer has found himself in hot water after he suggested that he wanted to 'kill' Breazeale in the ring.

Wilder's comments have even sparked a response from the World Boxing Council, with the Bronze Bomber set to face a hearing over what he said ahead of the bout.

"I have known Wilder for a long time and he is not the person he portrays in such comments," WBC president Mauricio Sulaimán said.

"His metaphors are against the WBC code of ethics and will be addressed in a hearing."

Earlier this month, the WBC ordered for Tyson Fury to fight Dillian Whyte to determine Wilder's mandatory challenger.

The Gypsy King, who fights German boxer Tom Schwarz on 15th June, has said that he would accept the challenge to fight his fellow Brit.

Wilder or Breazeale to win?
