The Internet is still buzzing after WBC heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder dropped challenger Dominic "Trouble” Breazeale, right, in 137 seconds of the 1st round to retain his WBC heavyweight title at the Barclays Center on Saturday.
The bad blood between the two fighters stems from a brawl in a hotel lobby in 2017. But before we get to that, here's some things you should know about Wilder.
He was born on October 22, 1985 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He's 33. He earned the nickname "The Bronze Bomber" after winning a bronze medal in the 2008 Summer Olympics.
He's 6 ft 7 in. tall with a boxing record of 41-0-1 with 40 knockouts (19 knockouts in the first round) and 1 draw to British heavyweight champion Tyson Fury on December 1, 2018.
Wilder is ranked No. 2 in the world behind British unified world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (22-0-0, 19 KOs).
Wilder has multiple children with at least 3 women (that we know of). His oldest child with high school sweetheart Helen Duncan is his 14-year-old daughter Naieya Wilder who was born with spina bifida and is disabled. He also has two other daughters and a son by his first wife Jessica Scales-Wilder, whom he divorced in 2009.
He is currently engaged to and has a toddler daughter with his fiancee Shuntel "Telli" Swift who appeared with him in the reality TV show WAGs Atlanta. And Wilder is rumored to have other out-of-wedlock children.
It was those rumors that sparked a wild brawl between Wilder, Breazeale and their camps in a hotel lobby in 2017, after both men won their fights on the same card in Birmingham, Alabama.
The way Breazeale tells it, Wilder's younger brother Marcellus Wilder, also a boxer, started the confrontation by stepping to him in the hotel lobby.
Breazeale, 33, said on social media that he was "attacked" by what he described as "a mob of about 20 people."
"My coach and I were blindsided by sucker punches and my team was assaulted as well in front of my wife and kids," said the 6' 7" Breazeale. "This cowardly act has no place in #boxing and believe me will not go unpunished."
But Wilder told a different story on social media.
He said Breazeale (20-2, 18 KOs) confronted his brother in the arena and threatened to kill Wilder's entire family.
"My brother was the one provoked. I was very upset when I heard about that incident. THIS IS MY ONLY BROTHER AND I AM HIS KEEPER," Wilder wrote.
"I did want to confront Breazeale, man to man and face to face, but just because we are fighters doesn't mean we always have to act with violence and my only intention was to speak with him."
"I was accused of having a (MOB) OF 20 People and that's just ridiculous. I approached Breazeale in the lobby Alone as my Team stood back and immediately a member of his team grabbed me. My brother was punched, people close to Breazeale yelled cuss words at me, and I lost my cool."
"My only concern was the safety of my family and my only brother. First, I did NOT throw a punch. Second, I did NOT make a comment about Breazeale's children. Anything else you have heard is a lie because no matter how heated or protective I may be, I'm not the kind of man to go after someone's kids."
Both men decided to settle their differences in the ring on May 19, but the outcome was not what Breazeale had predicted or hoped for.
