A bright Red Orbit is then seen on the leather Swooshes for contrast.

A white midsole and gum rubber outsole serve as the finishing details. This Air Max 1 can be purchased at select Nike retailers now for $110.

Deontay Wilder’s Head Trainer Tells Us What It’s Like to be Hit by the Heavyweight Champ


Jay Deas and Deontay Wilder

Heavyweight champ Deontay Wilder has etched a name for himself in the boxing community over the past decade through his downright scary punching power. In his 40 professional bouts, only Bermane Stiverne went the distance with the champ back in 2017. In the rematch, however, Wilder made short work of him, flooring Stiverne with a first-round KO. 

Hailing from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, Wilder initially took up boxing to support his daughter, Naieya, who has spina bifida, an extremely expensive birth defect that affects the spine. Despite the condition, Wilder’s financial success has led to a better life for Naieya. When speaking to BT Sport, he revealed, “She came very far from what doctors said she would maybe never be able to do. Like walk or have a natural childhood ability of learning.” He also added, “She’s just become a thirteen-year-old. I’m just very proud of her.” 

He went to his local gym in 2005 in hopes of finding a trainer who could quickly turn his natural athleticism into a career that would help him support his daughter. The gym he entered was Sky Boxing Gym, and the trainer he linked with was Jay Deas, the gym’s owner. Ever since that meeting over a decade ago, this pair has demolished the heavyweight division. He currently holds the WBC title belt, while Anthony Joshua holds the WBO, IBF, and WBA belts.  

On December 1, Wilder will face the undefeated Tyson Fury, the fifth-ranked heavyweight in the world. Deas believes Wilder’s power will prevail again, which is easy for him to say because he’s been absorbing Wilder’s blows for years. 

M&F: How exactly does it feel to be punched by a heavyweight champ, specifically Wilder?

Deas: It’s not pleasant—he just has tremendous power. They used to say getting hit by George Foreman was like getting hit by a Mack Truck at 35 miles an hour. Like you could feel every bit of the pain and everything. And that getting hit by Mike Tyson was like getting hit by a bullet. You don’t really feel it, your body just doesn’t work anymore. Deontay’s a little bit of a combination of the two. Probably more on the speed side, more on the Mike Tyson side in that he, you know, he generates a lot of power through his speed. It’s like a shock to the system type of a thing. 

via GIPHY

In the past, Wilder has sent you, and other people in the camp, to the hospital due to various training incidents. Was there an adjustment period in training with Wilder compared to others? 

I had an elbow injury from playing college baseball, and I had to adjust the way that I took the punches. I had to raise my elbows up a little bit so as to take the power more on the shoulders. I had to kinda just change where the impact was affecting me. 

Since you’ve been training him, have you felt a difference in power?

I think he’s gotten more accurate and more precise and really homing in on the punches that he’s throwing. I think that the power has increased. It’s not like he’s just trying to hit the side of the barn; he’s trying to hit the fly on the door on the side of the barn. 

How does Wilder’s workout regimen outside of the ring contribute to his success? 

So we work hand-in-hand with the strength team. But they do a lot of pushing motions, twisting motions, footwork, and agility. There’s not a lot of pulling motions because that can slow you down. 

What do you think separates Wilder from other punchers?

So just being a puncher alone is not gonna get you there. There has to be other tools in the toolbox. And his will to win is really second to none. He’s willing to dig deeper than anybody else. And no matter how deep they go, he can go even deeper. 

Do you have a personal favorite Wilder KO? 

The Ortiz fight. Everybody knew Ortiz was one of the top three or four fighters in the world. And then for Deontay to beat him like he did and overcome adversity, that was probably the sweetest one.

A Job 20 Years in the Making: Dan Solomon’s Olympia Journey


A photo of Chief Olympia Officer Dan Solomon

Gabe Ginsberg / Contributor

Madison Square Garden: October 10, 1998. It was an experience that would alter the course of my life. Only a few years out of college, I managed to scrape together enough to cover the cost of the ticket, but it may have been the best investment I’ve ever made. It was the first time I would attend a major bodybuilding event, and I’ll never forget it. The sights and sounds around the venue were as galvanizing as the chiseled physiques competing that night for bodybuilding’s most prestigious title: Mr. Olympia.

It was electric. I was so inspired by the experience that I turned it into a career, merging a love of fitness, media, and business into a professional journey that now spans 20 years—editor, publisher, host, writer, producer…you name it. But nothing could have prepared me for the phone call I received last month.

The voice on the other end of the phone belonged to Chris Scardino, Executive Vice President at American Media, Inc. (AMI), the same company that publishes this magazine along with two dozen or so of the world’s most popular celebrity and active lifestyle-themed publications, both print and digital. Chris was calling to discuss the recently held Olympia Weekend, a valuable property that AMI recently gained 100% ownership in. We discussed the numerous layers of the event, with the singular focus on creating a fan experience unlike any other. I’m always glad to offer up my two cents on any number of topics, but the chance to discuss the Olympia was especially gratifying given my personal connection with the event dating back to that night in 1998.

A few days later, Chris reached out again. This time he was calling to invite me to New York to meet with AMI Chairman David Pecker, regarded in media circles as one of its most influential figures. I had met David on a few occasions over the years, but this would be my first chance to experience, first hand, the unabashed passion of the man who built a media empire that reaches roughly 130 million consumers each month. It only took a few minutes before we both realized that we share a sincere desire to take the Olympia to unchartered territory. While the event has long been considered the crown jewel of the fitness industry, David made it crystal clear that there’s still work to be done. By the time our meeting had ended, David offered me a job—Chief Olympia Officer.

The opportunity of a lifetime, the chance to oversee one of the fitness industry’s most celebrated brands, roughly the equivalent of being called upon to run the baseball team I grew up cheering for. Twenty years after that unforgettable night in the fall of ‘98, I humbly accepted David’s offer. If you’ve never experienced Olympia Weekend, mark your calendars for Vegas the weekend of September 13, 2019. Who knows, in 20 years, YOU might be running the show.
