Defeated by Tyson Fury twice in his last two fights, Deontay Wilder is considering pursuing his athletic career on the rings. To determine the decision, the former WBC Heavyweight Champion would like to fuel his thoughts by eating ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic mixture used by shamans that contains powerful natural psychoactive substances.
Will Deontay Wilder continue his career and keep turning out the lights in noble art? Four months after his second straight defeat to Tyson Fury, a crazy fight out of which he got a touch in the hand and with a six-month medical suspension from the Nevada Athletic Commission, the question of the former WBC heavyweight champ’s athletic future is being raised even more. since when. To answer that, the American Knockout Boxer raises the possibility of turning into a South American hallucinogenic mixture used by shamans in ritual ceremonies that contains a powerful natural psychoactive substance (DMT): ayahuasca.
Like ex-episode horror Mike Tyson who finds new meaning in his life using psychedelic frog poison, Bronze Bomber is ready to open his mind on a spiritual journey to choose which path to take. “I am thinking about using ayahuasca, it will be my process to make my decision,” he stated on the Byron Scott Podcast, presented by the former NBA player and coach. Boxing has left me with a bad taste in my mouth for what it has done to me. It is dangerous, political, there is cheating. …but despite it all, I still love this sport.”
A few weeks ago, Wilder had already opened the door to retirement by explaining that he had “achieved all the goals in sports,” starting with protecting his daughter, who was born with spina bifida (a congenital malformation of the spine and spine). cord): “When she was a year old, I told her I was going to be a hero and that I would be able to support her in what she was going through beyond what she could possibly imagine. I did. There was nothing left for me to prove whether I should fight again or should I retire and focus.” on other things?
Still #1 in the WBC rankings, just behind King Fury, the former champion would have no shortage of options if he decides to put the gloves back on, like other weightlifters from Premier Boxing Champions promoters Andy Ruiz Jr, Frank Sanchez or Charles Martin or recent rumors of proposals To return against New Zealander Joseph Parker or Britain’s Derek Chisora. The prospect of a long-awaited showdown against Anthony Joshua, if the latter is still defeated by Oleksandr Usyk in a rematch between the two expected in the coming months, may also make sense. Thirty-six is not a blocker in a category in which one can still shine late.
Shortly after his third triple battle against Fury, a draw in 2018 and two “Gypsy King” victories in 2020 and 2021, his coach Malik Scott recounted long nights of conversations between the two as the topic of his future was at the center of the debate. But the person in question cut the speculation short On the microphone of his buddy Tele Swift podcast: “I am not complaining, I am moving forward. (…) For me, this is not the end, it is just the beginning. The best is yet to come for me. I have already accomplished a lot, more than I could imagine, but I still have goals in these Sports and that’s why I still love him.” It remains to be seen which side Deontay Wilder will turn if he decides to complete his hallucinogenic journey into the world of ayahuasca. Continuing the man’s career with forty-one knockouts in forty-two victories (versus two defeats and a draw) may find his answer at the end of the road.
