Remembering When Deontay Wilder’s Shocking Attempt At An English Accent Made Him Sound Like Borat

Remembering When Deontay Wilder’s Shocking Attempt At An English Accent Made Him Sound Like Borat

Deontay Wilder's best attempt to mock fierce rival Anthony Joshua with an English accent hilariously made him sound like Borat.

Speaking ahead of the Dominic Breazeale fight in May, the WBC champ appeared on Showtime and decided to take a swipe at the Brit superstar.

KO artist Wilder, 33, and the 29-year-old Joshua were long touted to have a mega-unification match before 'AJ' was stripped of the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles by Andy Ruiz Jr.

And the 'Bronze Bomber' tried to mock Joshua over wanting the unification fight in the UK and not in the States.

However, fans could only see the funny side of how Wilder's impersonation was uncanny to Sacha Baron Cohen's beloved character.

"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 also caught the eye of rival Dillian Whyte, who called him an "absolute weapon" for his impression of 'AJ.'

The Alabama-born boxing star is scheduled to rematch Luis Ortiz on 23rd November at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

But Wilder has revealed that his plans after the Ortiz fight will be to rematch Tyson Fury before eyeing up a unification match again.

He told Sky Sports: "Look at the route I'm taking. What more do I have to prove? Who else has taken the route that I am taking?

"I didn't have to fight him again. I'm not obliged to fight him. I'm the champion -- I do what I want to do.

"I have bet on myself. I move how I want to move. I run my operation.

"It will go Ortiz, then Fury, then a unification -- one champion, one face, one name. How amazing would that be?

"Back to back to back, obtaining glory."
