Boxing fans stunned by Wilder’s skinny body transformation – Sporting Life
Deontay Wilder is back in the gym and preparing for his comeback to boxing, but fans were stunned to see his skinny legs in apparent weight loss.
The Bronze Bomber hasn’t been seen since his second loss to Tyson Fury to complete their trilogy in October 2021.
After contemplating retirement, the former WBC heavyweight champion is now training for a return to the ring and while the American is sporting a slenderer frame, fans can’t believe how skinny his legs are.
The 36-year-old stands at 6ft7in, and has always had big, muscular arms that along with his huge wingspan generates formidable power.
However, he’s never had bulky legs. In fact, Wilder complained that his legs were compromised thanks to the extravagant costume he wore to the ring for his second fight with Fury.
Still, he does look to have lost weight overall and fans were quick to jump on the picture.

Since he returned to training, Wilder has been training with compatriot Michael Hunter and he met UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou at UFC’s Performance Institute in Las Vegas.
Wilder hasn’t got an opponent in mind or a date yet, but he’s ready to reinvigorate his career – and it’s not for the money.
‘I’m definitely considering coming back,’ Wilder said.
‘This is something that we’re trying to figure out and get things situated. I feel [it could be] a re-boost for my career.
