Deontay Wilder Has Incredibly Transformed His Body Since The 2008 Olympics

Deontay Wilder Has Incredibly Transformed His Body Since The 2008 Olympics

WBC champ Deontay Wilder has drastically altered his body since he captured a bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics.

The 34-year-old feared power puncher held an amateur record of 30-5 and was selected for the USA's team at the event in China.

Wilder reached the semi-finals before he suffered a defeat to Italian Clemente Russo and walked away with a bronze medal.

Wilder, who returns to action this month in his hotly-anticipated rematch with Tyson Fury, opened up about the incredible diet he maintained last year.

The KO artist told Alabama Local: "I eat me a good breakfast, from pancakes to Polish sausage to patty sausage and some good eggs.

"One morning, I will eat Egg McMuffins and it will rotate throughout breakfast time with that.

"I come back again at 11:30am, eat a nice Alfredo chicken pasta with corn on the cob, maybe have some nice garlic bread toasted alongside that with a protein shake.

"I will also have a protein shake in the morning with the breakfast. [At] 2pm will be a sandwich, you know, maybe ham and cheese, maybe tuna, with two boiled eggs.

"The 5pm [meal] will consist of a Salisbury steak, with mashed potatoes and green beans and I eat a lot of red potatoes; I eat a lot of yams.

"And then at 7:30pm, I have a nice T-bone steak, some more red potatoes, we might have some squash in there and some green beans."

Wilder weighed in at 14st 8lbs when he won his first professional fight against Ethan Cox in 2008.

And the WBC kingpin came in at 15st 7lbs in his rematch against Luis Ortiz back in November, in which he secured a sensational seventh-round KO win.

Wilder's trainer, Jay Deas, has revealed that the fighter could tip the scales at around 15st 7lbs for his rematch with Fury in Las Vegas.
