Video: Deontay Wilder Reveals The True Meaning of "To This Day"

WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder reveals the true meaning behind his “to this day” sound bite that went viral in this exclusive clip from ALL ACCESS: WILDER vs. BREAZEALE. The latest installment of the Sports Emmy® Award-winning series premieres tonight, May 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.  

In the clip, Wilder tours the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery, Ala., a city with deep civil rights history, and explains what led him to react the way he did in the widely-spread video where he emotionally stated that the fight for equality continues to this day.

“That was the most powerful thing I’ve ever said in my life because I’m seeing the reaction and the reflection it’s having on people’s lives,” says Wilder of the soundbite that went viral prior to his December matchup with Tyson Fury. “I’m not perfect, but I will use my platform for the greater good.”

Wilder will attempt to make the ninth successful defense of his WBC Heavyweight World Championship on Saturday, May 18 live on SHOWTIME from Barclays Center in Brooklyn in a matchup of two American heavyweights with a combined 90 percent knockout ratio.

You're the one making stuff up bro. Talking **** about Ali carrying guys. You don;t know that, you making a straw man here. Using the word 'tortured' is very wrong in that context.

To say that he "reveals" it kind of implies like he was holding some kind of rosetta stone esoteric knowledge from us all. He didn;t reveal anything - he's an absolute bellend coward who is a slave to his jewish…

[QUOTE=Nehnenqui;19732707]Lmao, that’s some of the most cringeworthy s**t I’ve ever seen. Deontay Wilder is a civil rights hero because he said “To this day!,” lmao. This is disrespectful to the black people that are really on the frontlines of equality…

Walking around dressed like that, none of it will matter, because you're not going to get the right kind of respect from the right people. You'll just be labeled another thug with a voice. This is one key reason Ali…
