Deontay Wilder I Want To Be In ‘Creed III’ … As Clubber Lang’s Son

EXCLUSIVE

Deontay Wilder ain’t finished with his superstar rise by a long shot … ‘cause now he wants to take Hollywood by storm … and he’s got the PERFECT role in mind to get his career started.

As Clubber Lang’s son … in the next “Creed” movie.

If you don’t remember Clubber (shame on you), he was the total BADASS played by Mr. T in “Rocky III” — and the first guy other than Apollo to put something on Rock’s ass.

We got Wilder in NYC, and he told us he DEFINITELY wants to make a serious splash in the film industry and thinks this role could be the one.

“That’s what I’m all about, my passion is acting!”

Think about it … Lang was a big, scary guy who hit like a ton of bricks … and if you’re going to cast another big, scary guy who hits like a ton of bricks, is there anyone better?

FYI — Wilder says he doesn’t look at acting as a side hustle or hobby, telling our guy he wants it to be his full-time career after he hangs up his leather.

We hope that’s after another fight with Tyson Fury AND after a huge fight with Anthony Joshua … but we can only hope.

Riddick Bowe Me Vs. Wilder? … ‘I’d Tap That Ass’

EXCLUSIVE

Riddick Bowe says with three months of training, he’d whoop the hell out of Deontay Wilder … and the dude is dead serious.

“I’d tap that ass,” Riddick tells TMZ Sports.

Bowe is 50 years old now and Deontay’s a 33-year-old coming off the fight of his life … but the boxing legend says none of that matters.

“If you gave me three months, I’d tap that ass. Give me three months, we could do it … If you gave me three months, yessir. Without question.”

So, what makes the retired boxer so confident? He tells us his relationship with Wilder’s trainer, Mark Breland, is the key.

“I know exactly what he’s thinking and when he’s thinking it!”

As for Wilder’s right hand … Bowe says that could be a problem, but, “When I get up, I’ll put my foot in your ass!”

BTW … Deontay ain’t the only one Bowe’s got his sights set on — he’s callin’ out Shaquille O’Neal too!

“Shaq Daddy, let’s make it happen, Shaq! Let’s do the damn thing. Let’s rumble, young man, let’s rumble!”

Deontay Wilder Floyd Mayweather Is A Jealous Hater … I’m Boxing’s New Star

EXCLUSIVE

Deontay Wilder says Floyd Mayweather is a TBH … THE BIGGEST HATER, claiming Floyd is seething mad that Wilder is the new big star in boxing, and Mayweather is yesterday’s news.

We got Wilder out in L.A. just days after he and Tyson Fury put together the most entertaining draw in boxing history and he says, while the world was stoked on the fight, Floyd wasn’t.

“They loved it, they loved every bit of it. The world loved it, and I don’t think he liked that though. He wants all the attention on him, and it’s sad that it’s like that.”

Deontay’s logic is that he’s a heavyweight, and the big guys are the ones fans REALLY want to see, so it’s just a matter of time before he’s at the top of the sport, and the old guys have to get used to it.

When we asked him if he’ll ever make Floyd Mayweather money, he says it’s definitely in the future for him, and once again, seems to take shots at Money.

“I’m coming, and it’s a lot of fighters that’s jealous of me for no reason. I’ve never said nothing bad about no one, I’ve always wished them well.”

FYI — Floyd was SUPER critical of the decision in the Fury fight, saying Tyson was robbed in the draw, but it’s clear Wilder thinks that’s not just Floyd’s boxing mind talking, but his hater mind.

“Some fighters just don’t want to see me make it.”

A shame there’s like 100 pounds separating these guys … would be fun.

Deontay Wilder God Woke Tyson Fury Up From KO … So We Could Rematch

EXCLUSIVE

God came down from above to wake Tyson Fury up from a 12th-round knockout Saturday … and did it so Fury and Deontay Wilder could have an epic rematch — so says Wilder himself.

“God lifted that man up from that knockout,” Deontay tells TMZ Sports … “So now when we have the rematch, it’s nothing that’s going to be said.”

Wilder and Fury put on a show at Staples Center in their heavyweight tilt — all highlighted by a vicious 12th-round left hook from Wilder that put Tyson flat on his back.

“The last knockdown was a devastating one, where the eyes rolled in the back of the head,” Deontay says … “9 times out of 10, a referee would have stopped that immediately.”

But, the ref didn’t … and Wilder’s convinced it’s all ‘cause a higher power wanted to see Wilder-Fury II in a few months.

“I think he had an army of prayers around him that night, and I think God don’t make mistakes, though. I think God woke that guy up for the rematch.”

As for what that means for the highly anticipated Wilder-Anthony Joshua fight … Deontay says he “don’t give a f*ck” about that scrap anymore — at least for now.

Deontay says Joshua had his shot to make the mega-fight, but right now, he’s solely focused on the rematch with Tyson.

“He thought he was the only one in this sport, the biggest thing in this sport,” Wilder said of Joshua.

“But, you’re not. Me and Fury, that’s all it’s about — me and Fury. I don’t give a f*ck what they talking about … He’s on the backburner. Ain’t nobody talking about him.”

Deontay Wilder v. Tyson Fury That Fight Was ‘Bulls**t!!!’ Ice Cube Angry About Draw

EXCLUSIVE

Ice Cube‘s gotta say it was NOT a good day when Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury‘s heavyweight championship fight ended in a split decision draw — in fact, Cube’s straight up pissed.

We got him storming out of L.A.’s Staples Center moments after the boxers fought to a 12 round tie, and he called the outcome “bulls**t” because he thinks Wilder was robbed. True enough, Wilder did knock down Fury twice — including in the 12th — but he got up both times.

Just like the match … opinions are split. We also talked to boxer Andre Berto leaving the bout and he thought the result was fair, and he’s looking forward to a rematch.

Michael Rappaport, on the other hand, wanted more from Deontay.

We know this … if there is a rematch — there’s totally gonna be — you can believe Ice Cube won’t be watching! He’s really not happy.

‘GOT’ Star The Mountain A Fight With Wilder Or Fury? I’d Be Knocked Out In One Punch!

EXCLUSIVE

The strongest man on the planet and the baddest dude on “Game Of Thrones” says there’s no way in hell he could fight Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury … ‘cause The Mountain says they’d END him!

We got Hafthor Julius Bjornsson — aka Thor, the 2018 World’s Strongest Man — out at LAX when he told us if he fought the heavyweights … it’d be lights out for him.

“Right now they are the best, and there’s no way a guy like myself that doesn’t train in the sport can just go in there and beat them.”

The tale of the tape is pretty interesting — The Mountain comes in at 6 feet 9 and over 400 pounds. Wilder tips the scales at 6’7″, 212 — and Fury comes in at 6’9″, 257.

Despite the massive weight difference … Hafthor ain’t even giving himself a chance to last 1 punch — let alone 1 round.

“If I were to be punched by a guy like Fury or those guys in the face, I would probably get knocked out the first hit.”

Remember, Bjornsson did spar with Conor McGregor — and dominated the Irishman — but it’s clear he knows his limits.

Boxing’s Jarrell Miller Calls Out Deontay Wilder Trump Used You!

EXCLUSIVE

Deontay Wilder is being called out for hypocrisy by a heavyweight contender who loved Wilder’s passionate rant about racism, but HATED the fact Wilder visited President Trump.

After Wilder told Tyson Fury that black people have been fighting in this country for 400 years — he went off on a radio host who asked him to explain the comment. 

Wilder exploded with a passionate rant about how black people have been oppressed and mistreated in the U.S. — and he was offended that the radio host pushed him on the topic.  

But, undefeated boxing star Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller has a problem with Wilder … claiming he undermined his own message by meeting with President Trump back in May. 

Wilder had visited Trump’s White House with Sylvester Stallone and others as part of the group paying homage to Jack Johnson … after President Trump pardoned the late boxer for a 1913 conviction many believe was racially motivated. 

Miller — a legit Top 5 heavyweight contender who’s lined up to fight either Wilder or Anthony Joshua this year — says Wilder got used by Trump to curry favor with African Americans … and it’s a stain on his public image. 

“LeBron James, Steph Curry, a lot of other guys didn’t want to go up to the White House because they knew what Trump was doing was just using black athletes as a shade to hopefully get black voters to get on his good side.”

Miller sees this as Deontay talking out of both sides of his mouth and, although he loved Thursday’s rant, he’s got a message for Deontay when it comes to racial issues. 

“We have to have the same energy all the time.”

George Foreman Wilder & Fury … Woulda Wrecked Me

EXCLUSIVE

George Foreman doesn’t know who’s gonna win the MASSIVE heavyweight title fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury on Saturday, but he does know one thing …

BOTH men woulda kicked the ass of a young George Foreman.

We talked to George, a two-time heavyweight champ and the oldest man to ever win the crown, and he told us he thinks both Wilder and Fury would have been a little too much for him to handle.

“I don’t think I could’ve been able to get a good shot on Tyson Fury at all. He’s too elusive.”

Big George saw a whole different set of problems with Wilder.

“With Deontay Wilder, I’d have to protect myself so much I’d been in danger from round 1 to the final round.”

As a matter of fact, Foreman thinks so highly of the two fighters he says their matchup on Saturday is going to be an EPIC brawl for the ages.

“I can say that, when it does take place, it’ll be the world’s greatest heavyweight matchup. For the world. Not America. A world championship boxing match. And, there’s nothing better you can put together. Not today.”

So here’s the thing … we love George, and fully admit he’s forgotten more about boxing than we’ll ever know. But, we’re not so sure about this take. Dude was a BEAST, and beat an UNDEFEATED Joe Frazier

But, honestly … we’re still afraid of him, so we didn’t wanna argue.
