Boxing fans well remember the match between Deontay Wilder and Anthony Joshua, after which Wilder accused the Gypsy King of loading his gloves with weights. Deontay still holds fast to that opinion. Although in the beginning he had difficult moments to accept defeat, Wilder revealed what helped him in difficult moments.

It isn't so much what I think Fury did, it was what I know he did. But God said ‘victory is not yours, it's his’, so I walk on that path. What I think has helped me a lot with life and what has made me happier - because I have proof of a lot of things [Fury did], you understand me? But that's neither here nor there - but what has helped me on the journey of life is Ayahuasca," Wilder said, as quoted by!

Deontay Wilder: I feel so much happier

Wilder couldn't stop praising Ayahuasca. He found that it shifted his perspective on life, making him appreciate the little things more. His behavior has undergone a significant transformation, and he's sporting more smiles these days.

This heavyweight champ is convinced that everyone has some fears, but overcoming them is important.
"Ayahuasca has been a beautiful thing. I advise everyone to explore those options of taking Ayahuasca. It has definitely released something in me, a lot of people say that I'm more sensitive to things and happier - and I feel that way ever since leaving Ayahuasca.

I feel so much happier and a release of things. It's a beautiful thing. I appreciate the smallest things in life, not saying I didn't before, but I do even more on a wider scale. I'm happier and smiling more and a lot of people get skeptical about Ayahuasca because of certain things and they get frightful, but I always tell people you must overcome your fears because your fears can hold you back from reaching the next level”.

While many speculated Wilder might have been depressed after the defeat, he clarified that boxing isn't his sole focus. Deontay leads an active life beyond the ring. He's not one for tranquility. Wilder has passions like music and business, which he holds dear.

“This is the happiest I've ever been. A lot of people assumed I was depressed because they weren't hearing from me. But if you go back in the history of time, when I'm out of boxing I'm MIA. I leave it alone, I go do other things because I'm so talented in so many different ways that I don't spend all my time boxing.

I can't. I need multiple incomes, I have eight children, so I must continue to provide service to my greatness; the start of my music career which is going very well and I'm a businessman; I own many properties, I'm building plaza's and hotel condominiums, I have employees. I have a lot going on that doesn't consist of boxing all the time. We can't box all the time”.
