That video that everyone has probably seen at this stage, involving WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and a mascot on a television show getting punched – has now being addressed by Wilder himself.
The video depicts Wilder landing a big right hand on the mascot with fresh reports coming out yesterday that it in fact broke the man in the costume’s jaw.
Wilder has denied he did not know there was someone in the costume, like some outlets have reported, and offered an apology and tickets to his next fight to the man if the reports are true:
A nice gesture, fair play.
Here’s the video in question again, one more time:
#DeontayWilder is mad
Man broke the guy's jaw
Claiming he didn't know there was a real person inside!!
Did he think there was a robot inside there!! pic.twitter.com/bYPNmSeTxc
