Deontay Wilder in career move as ex-world champion boxer signs up for huge reality TV show and is in UK for filming | The Sun

DEONTAY WILDER is set to take part in reality game show The Traitors US.

A host of celebrities have joined the cast including the former speaker of the House of Commons and Arsenal fan John Bercow.

The pair may have to work together to uncover who is the traitor amongst the group, and who is not.

Wilder and his co-stars will take part in games during the day, and an elimination every night, before the traitors kill (remove from the game with a slip of paper) another player before breakfast.

The show is filmed at a remote Scottish castle so Wilder is set to land in the UK.

It is a significant change of pace for the former heavyweight champion, who has been tipped to fight Anthony Joshua.

Wilder, 37, has not fought since devastatingly knocking out Robert Helenius in October last year.

But he could step into the ring with Joshua next after the pair reportedly agreed terms.

However a location and venue is still yet to be decided on, which means the grudge match will likely be pushed back to 2024.

That provides Wilder with enough time to film The Traitors – should he go all the way and win the competition.

Wilder also had a war of words with Andy Ruiz Jr over the summer as they negotiated a potential fight.

The Bronze Bomber threatened to "splatter" Ruiz's brain in a chilling warning.

He said: “With my team, with your team, and now it’s time to put it all together.

“Who acting scared? It isn’t me. You know, because what y ‘all talk about is unreasonable. Let’s face it, and it is what it is.

“So when you serious, holla at me until then. Do what you do, bro. You got a lot of weight to lose, man. You can talk that talk. But only a few walk that walk.

“You know what I mean? So if you want to see what a knockout feels like, get your brain splattered. Holla at me, bro. I’m not far.”
