WBC World Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder is known by, and for, many things.

“The Bronze Bomber.”

The BombZquad and the booming chanting that follows.

But most don’t know the real Deontay Wilder, the one we got to know leading up to his recent victory over Johann Duhaupas. The one that you will come to know, respect, cheer for and love through “Driven: Deontay Wilder” the latest installment in our successful series. He is Alabama’s son and proud of the fact that he represents Tuscaloosa. He’s an Olympic medalist, a proud and loving father and an undefeated champion who, admittedly, is still learning the art of boxing.
