Deontay Wilder Infographic Tears Into Quality Of Opponents By 'Exposing' His Boxing Resume

Deontay Wilder's boxing record has been put on full blast after an infographic exposed the calibre of opponents he has faced in his career.

The 34-year-old former WBC champ suffered his first professional loss in his blockbuster rematch with Tyson Fury in February.

Touch Gloves Boxing produced an infographic after Wilder successfully defended the WBC title against Bermane Stiverne in 2017.

And it spotlighted the first 39 opponents that the 'Bronze Bomber' faced and their positional rankings in the world.

But the 41-year-old Haitian-Canadian boxer was unranked by the time that their rematch rolled around two years later.

Artur Szpilka managed to trouble the 'Bronze Bomber' in their 2016 clash before he suffered a devastating ninth-round KO defeat.

And the 31-year-old Polish boxer was only ranked 24th in the world at the time of his defeat.

Only two of Wilder's first 10 opponents -- Joseph Rabotte and Ty Cobb -- were officially ranked in the world.

Wilder's second title defence came against Frenchman Johann Duhaupas, who was ranked 34th in the world.

And the 'Bronze Bomber' revealed in a 2018 interview that Duhaupas was his "toughest" opponent at the time.

"That's easy -- I've gotta give it to a Frenchman by the name of Johann Duhaupas," he explained.

"He was the toughest. We went, I think, 11 rounds and he was taking everything.

"I remember in the fight, I was like, 'Damn, this motherf****r taking everything, he's taking all these punches. Alright, I'm gonna keep hitting him.'

"You can't stop because they keep taking the punches. If they want to be stupid enough to keep gathering these punches in their face like that, then you're going to give it to them."
