Boxer Deontay Wilder reveals he has accomplished all his goals plus asks himself if it’s time to retire on Kevin Hart’s “Cold as Balls”.
This week’s episode of “Cold as Balls” from Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud features 5x WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder as he joins Kevin in the cold tubs to discuss his successful career, how he has accomplished more in the sport than he ever needed to, and his respect for Muhammad Ali.
He also dishes on what it was like coming out of Alabama as a boxer, starting at such a late age, and how people viewed him because of those factors.
Episode highlights include:
- Deontay discussing how he didn’t start boxing until age 21, which is much later than the vast majority of athletes. He explains how he was inspired by his daughter to make his start in the sport and be the best to provide for her.
- Deontay telling Kevin that he has already proved everything he needs to at this point in his career, leading to him asking himself if he should give it a go one more time, or move on to focus on other interests and projects.
- Deontay recalling being ranked dead last of the registered fighters in the heavyweight division at the 2008 Olympics. He was considered a “fighter jet that came out of nowhere” after winning the bronze medal.
- The Bronze Bomber says Muhammad Ali is the athlete he respects the most – not only because of what he did inside the ring, but the impact he had outside of the sport and what he stood for.
The finale episode of “Cold as Balls” season 5 with guest A’ja Wilson will air next Tuesday on the Laugh Out Loud YouTube channel, Cold as Balls Facebook page, and Hart’s Facebook page.
