Deontay Wilder has revealed his plan to take a psychedelic drug in order to help make a decision regarding his retirement from professional boxing.
Wilder’s last bout came in October last year, as he was defeated by heavyweight rival Tyson Fury for the second straight time following an 11th round knockout in Las Vegas.
Since his defeat to the Gypsy King rumours of the American’s retirement have been rife with the Bronze Bomber aged 36 and without a heavyweight title.
Wilder has also seemingly been left out of the recent headline fight conversation surrounding the heavyweight division, with Fury, Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk the main talking points.
This also seems to imply that the former champion of the world’s time at the top could be coming to an end, however in order to make the decision he has revealed an interesting plan.
As a result Wilder admitted he is contemplating Ayahuasca (a South American brew), which would send him on a ‘spiritual’ journey to help him decide his future.
Speaking on the Byron Scott Podcast he said: “I’m thinking about doing Ayahuasca. That’s gonna be my decision-making process…
“Boxing’s put a bad taste because of what it’s done to me.
“It’s dangerous, politics, cheating… I still have love for the sport though.”
