Deontay Wilder to guest star on Showtime’s ‘Billions’ on Sunday, May 5

The episode airs tomorrow night at 9 pm ET.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

WBC heavyweight titleholder Deontay Wilder will guest star on the Showtime series “Billions” this Sunday, May 5, with the episode airing at 9:00 pm ET.

In the trailer for the episode above, it appears Wilder has taught someone how to box, which is a sort of frightening proposition. I mean, it would be better to be taught by Deontay Wilder than most average humans, he is a boxing champion and and all, but I’m not sure “try to knock someone out with your naturally incredible power” is going to work for the smaller, middle-aged bald man. Then again I don’t know who he’s fighting, could be a total can.

Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KO) is coming off of a controversial draw in December with Tyson Fury in what was one of the biggest fights of 2018, and is now set to defend against mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale on May 18, also live on Showtime from Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
