Deontay Wilder Mercilessly Mocked For Yelping During Interview Ahead Of Tyson Fury Fight

Deontay Wilder is supposedly one of the toughest men on the planet.

The Bronze Bomber has a staggering 39 knockouts from 40 unbeaten fights, and will be bidding to propel that tally to a landmark 40 KOs when he does battle with rival Tyson Fury in December’s blockbuster bout.

However, the WBC heavyweight championship has been mercilessly mocked for his reaction to getting squirted with a water gun.

The 33-year-old appeared on the new FOX Sports show Fair Game, where presenter Kristine Leahy pinged a number of questions on a variety of topics over in his direction during the "Wet and Wilder" segment.

The undefeated boxer was asked to name the character Mr T played in Rocky III, and had an absolute stinker, as the boxer failed to respond in the given time limit.

As a result, the presenter doused him with a water gun as a yelping Wilder meekly cowered behind a pillow.

He managed to recover by successfully guessing Fury’s reach, but was then unable to guess the cost of a George Foreman’s 2-in-1 grill, resulting in another water gun drenching, and subsequent squeal. 

Social media users were, as always, quick to react to the video.

Just so I'm clear, this is the heavyweight champion of the world, self-proclaimed baddest man on the planet, hiding behind a cushion from a water pistol? [@jramage84]

Wilder will look to quieten the Twitter haters in just over a month’s time when he goes head-to-head with Fury in Los Angeles in one of the most eagerly anticipated fights of the year.
