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.

  • Bree

    Sandra, your write ups are hilarious, out of wedlock children!! By the way, good morning!

  • Topic Influencer

    Love all sports. But no longer support boxing. All of them end up in bad ass shape when they are older due to pounding in the head and some are slow as hell while still Lil Mo husband picking up a debit card and using it IN the Dave and Busters he found it in.

  • Yoni7

    I think I just watched a video of him saying "believe it, receive it, accept it...." I even forwarded it to somebody because he spoke truth in it. Didn't know who he was until I came here. LOL

  • Yoni7

    Lil Mo's husband was/is a boxer? Which husband? Hasn't she been married a lot. Or am I thinking about KeKe Wyatt?

    Hell after seeing how Adrien Bronner (the hometown kid - we traded him tho') is fugged up, somebody needs to be getting a good SSI check for him.

  • KLove

    Brazeale got dropped!!! I really thought Wilder was gonna try to kill that boy......

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

  • Topic Influencer

    Yeah. Karl someone or another. Slow as the first of the month.

    Yusef double barrel self also was a boxer and he concocted that dumb ass story about being on a train and robbed or some shat when he was on a train alright... taking two dacks at once.

    And we all know Floyd is slow and a slew of others.

  • T Willis

    Wilder is dat dude!!! That TKO was so intense it shook my flat inch ? all that sh*t talking ??????

  • Trey

    Brazil should have kept his comments to himself...he got humbled.....oh and Anthony Joshua scared.

  • Karen Brady

    All I learned from this write-up is that I miss WAGS. *shrugs*

  • Gloria

    Not a fan of any sport that allows repetitive trauma to the head. With ALL we know about chronic traumatic encephalopathy, sports like this should be banned or have safety equipment, at least.

  • iWasteTime

    Good Morning Y'all!
    Why are they beefing?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm with you on that. I feel the same way about boxing, and also MMA fighting, which is worse. That stuff is like human cockfighting.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I like wilder but that fight with him and Tyson fury showed a real weakness when it comes to guys who are not afraid and willing to fight back

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I bet the famliy of these boxers have awful stories to tell once these guys get up in age

  • Karen Brady

    who knows.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    I think he was born slow and boxing intensified the effects of his preexisting condition ?

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs


  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Hubby and I went to tune into the fight at 11:30 and it wasnt on.. Then we learned dude gor knocked OUT in the first 2 minutes ??

  • Nita Pie

    I was like damn I just blinked what happened

  • Chapter29Chick

    So he mentioned this man's disabled child and got a 2 minute ass whoopin he deserved. Kids are off limits!!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I couldn't be in a relationship with a man that gets pummeled in his face for a living. The money just isn't worth it in my opinion.

  • luVn_liFe…

    omg! @SandraRose.. did you see Muhlaysia Booker that shim that got stomped out by that guy in TX was killed!! omg

  • Renee26

    His fiance looks like Evelyn Lozada

  • Renee26

  • Renee26

  • Renee26


  • luVn_liFe…

    that's awful and Im sure not a coincedence

  • T Willis

    I was not at all prepared for that @$$ whupping ?... the first hit took ME out.. and then when came wit that KO I was like dayuuuuuum!!! Dude was laid theeeee f*ck out... he legit put dude to bed??? I was screaming laughing idgaf!!!!

  • GAPeach

    The first thing I thought was, "I guess now old boys charges will be dropped since there is no longer a victim".

  • Renee26

    I was just thinking about this yesterday. Over my friends house listening to her jock son and his friends talk... They all sounded real slow like they were disabled and they seemed dumb as fawk. I blamed it on the football

  • luVn_liFe…

    THIS!!! but do he is on camera, that still helps,NO?

  • goat

    Tyson's goofy unorthodox style really frustrated Wilder and he didn't want to throw punches. That what it seemed like to me. If it wasn't for the knockdown, Wilder would've lost. Probably still should've. Wilder will knock him out in the rematch.

  • T Willis

    Yeah ?

  • GAPeach

    Only if the state chooses to continue with the charges.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I'm talking about the damage it does.

  • BlockingTrollsAllYearLong
  • luVn_liFe…

    he was out on $75,000 bond

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    We had the dumb face because we went to ALL showtime channels and they were showing The Chi ?? Hubby googled the dudes name and it said he got knocked OUT! We laughed TOO HARD!

  • Sid


  • luVn_liFe…

    what on earth is that advertisement up there.. "pee-proof underwear" dead

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    See them folks lead a dangerous life I don’t know why it was mouthing off to that dude in the first place

  • Renee26

    Slowness is a turn off for me

  • Renee26


  • Renee26

    Mo said she's all for marriage and makes it known early. I think this is marriage #3 for her.

    Ian mad!

  • Jussjess25

    Wilder was going to beat brazil no matter what. Brazil is just no ready. After they fixed that fury fight I cant wait for a rematch. Also, AJ will give wilder a run for his money I hope ?

  • Renee26

    Awww.... Guide me to the story chile

  • Renee26

    Hopefully the state will pick up the case and prosecute nonetheless

  • Topic Influencer

    Wouldn’t ever be mad over marriage… but Mo talk way too much on wtf goes on in her marriages and it makes her look even crazier than she already do. She found out husband two had cheated…in the middle of a threesome. And she cheated as get back. And husband number one had moved his girlfriend in and was making Mo sleep on the sofa if I recall. I cant with all of that information.

    Messy messy messy.

  • Cricket404

    Foolishness, Ali talked trash, Tyson talked about eating babies a pure savage. Take it out in the ring, tame your family, get money.

  • Logan Roberts

    Never been a fan of boxing and I wouldn't date one either. I'm not feeding you chicken noodle soup through a straw, by the time we turn 50. I still have lots of living to do.

  • DroneRivers

    Dude fell out and damn near did a split after 2 punches lol

  • Kanyade

    All of them end up in bad ass shape when they are older

  • xenaD

    The way they had my living room so turnt and the fight was over so fast... made my damn night. ?? I was chillin in my Jammie’s, in my bed.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Take into account Tyson had not fought in over two years for him to take that as his first fight and survive is something incredible . Wonder how wilder and his brawler style will be against one of the Klitschko brothers

  • NewNew

    I would be in a constant state of anxiety wondering if my man was safe. Couldn't sit there and watch him get beat on or beat up on others. I would be suffering right along with him.

    I told my husband that if we have any sons they won't be playing football. Not gonna watch them get knocked about. I will protect them from CTE/brain damage. Not happening on my watch. They can go play baseball or something.

  • CaramelDrop

    Isn’t that the necessary mentality going to war?
    Man, he got beat TF up quiCk ? Breazeale should’ve listen to some Master P and went to war instead of whining.

  • Parent

    I was disappointed that the fight ended so quickly. Even tho he got knocked the eff out, Breazeale is finer than a muh.

  • Kimberly King

    I watched the fight with my man. This was a nasty knockout. But he deserved it ! What kind of loser says that a person has a "fucked up" life because they have a disabled child? Bum

    Hope to see Wilder and AJ's fine ass fight soon. Or at least a Fury/a Wilder rematch.

  • Renee26

    Ohhhh lordt!! I didn't know all that. She must value the word more than the commitment. She's definitely over sharing and making herself look silly.

  • Renee26

    Well yeah that too ?

  • onelove


  • goat

    Them dudes still boxing?

  • T3

    I didn't know Wilder had so many kids. But he is surely F-I-N-E!!!! Laaawd! I was intrduced to him via WAGS! I love his stature. But his grammar is soooo baaaaad ?.
