Who is Deontay Wilder’s fiancee Telli Swift, and when did Bronze Bomber divorce his ex-wife Jessica Scales-Wilder?


The American heavyweight boxer is preparing for his showdown against Tyson Fury - but who is the beauty cheering on her man?

DEONTAY WILDER is preparing to defend his WBC World heavyweight title against Tyson Fury on February 22.

But, he has already won outside of the ring, having the stunning Telli Swift cheering him on.

Who is Telli Swift?

Telli Swift was born January 24, 1987 in Zambales, Philippines.

Her real name is Shuntel, only taking on 'Telli' once she was famous.

She is a household name in her own right in America, featuring on WAGS Atlanta, which airs on E!.

Like her current boyfriend, Deontay Wilder, Telli was previously married, having a son, Kerron, with her ex-husband.

She has since had a baby with the WBC world champion and her fiancee, with their daughter born on March 7, 2018.

Meanwhile, Telli has embraced being the heavyweight's partner, setting up the Boxing WAG Association - it helps raise funds for service providers and non-profit organisations to support children and families.

When did Wilder divorce Jessica Scales-Wilder?

Wilder married Jessica Scales in 2009 and proceeded to have four children with her - two sons and two daughters.

Their eldest child, Naieya, has spina bifida, with the boxer often calling her an inspiration as she battles the disability.

The three others are called Ava, Deontay Jr and Dereon.

But Wilder had an affair with Telli Swift, and eventually divorced Jessica in 2017 after eight years of marriage.
