EXCLUSIVE The other Wilder…

There's only one Deontay Wilder. But he has a brother. James Slater speaks to Marsellos Wilder

MARSELLOS WILDER, the 29 year old brother of reigning WBC heavyweight king Deontay Wilder, has just embarked on his own pro career – stopping a  Jalyn Anthony inside a round in Tuscaloosa in May – yet already the expectations are big: because of Marsellos’ surname.

Yet as much as he understands these expectations, the younger Wilder says he is not at all fazed by them; that he himself does not feel the pressure. The 1-0 (1) cruiserweight says he wants to be active yet at the same time is in no real rush. Wilder does not yet even know for sure which weight class he will be fighting in in the future – the current cruiserweight saying he may either move up or down, depending on how his 6’3” body develops.

Here Marsellos speaks with Boxing News:
