I want to go back and learn more about my culture and information with things about me. Once I’m done with what I’m doing, I’m going back to see my tribe, Edo.

“I want to see my culture and my ancestors and learn a lot of things. We all have lots of things that we are connected to that we know nothing about. I’ll love to go there and do research about my roots and my tribe

Deontar Wilder bears the nickname ” Bronze Bomber.” However, it is unclear whether he adopted the name because of the Binis in Edo State who are well known for their bronze crafts which date back to Nigeria’s pre-colonial era.

Wilder is preparing for his trilogy against Tyson Fury in July after the previous two fights ended in a controversial split decision draw and a win for Fury in February 2020.

The Bronze Bomber boasts of an impressive record of 42 wins, 1 draw, and 1 defeat in 44 bouts.
