Who Is Deontay Wilder’s Girlfriend?
Deontay Wilder returned to the ring for the first time in 14 months in the co-main event of ‘Day Of Reckoning’ in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The card was one of the best in the history of boxing, with Wilder front and center of that in the co-main event against Joseph Parker.
However, it didn’t all go Wilder’s way, as he was comprehensively outboxed by the New Zealand heavyweight, losing almost every round against the Kiwi. Fans were excited to see ‘The Bronze Bomber’ back in the ring, but are also curious about his life outside of the ropes.
Here at SportsLens we can reveal that Deontay Wilder is indeed in a relationship and is engaged to a woman called Telli Swift. The 1985-born fighter seems to be happily in love, living a fruitful life away from the sport of boxing.
The Alabama man first met Telli Swift back in 2015 before they began dating shortly after. Swift is a relation TV star in her own right, so Wilder isn’t the only celebrity in his household.
The pair dated for a period of time, before Wilder popped the question and proposed to Telli in February 2018. As of today, the pair are yet to officially tie the knot and get married, but have plans to do so in the not so distant future. It is evident that Wilder is head over heels in love with his fiancé:
“I love the girl. She got my heart. That’s my baby, that’s my best friend,” said Wilder on an episode of Wags Atlanta after his proposal. The proposal was to coincide with their child’s gender reveal party. The pair have since had a baby daughter – Wilder’s eighth child.
