Steel City Interactive continues to make waves with eSports Boxing Club. In the new fighter announcement, Steel City revealed Deontay Wilder as the latest member of the ESBC roster.
Deontay Wilder Coming to ESBC
The announcement contained a full body render of Wilder.
The Bronze Bomber lives up to his name almost every time he steps into the ring. He is 42-1-1 with 41 knockouts. After becoming WBC heavyweight champion in 2015, he defended the title ten times, knocking out Luiz Ortiz twice, Dominic Breazeale, Bermane Stiverne, and more.
His lone blemish on his otherwise spotless record is the Gypsy King, Tyson Fury. They fight in the long-awaited rubber match on October 9.
For Wilder, this is a chance to re-write his wrongs against Fury. However, for Fury, this is validation that he is the best heavyweight boxer in the world.
With Wilder now on board, ESBC continues to boast one of the deepest rosters in boxing video game history, with the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Tyson Fury, Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Oleksandr Usyk, and more are already in the game. If you want to check out the full roster you can do so here.
eSports Boxing Club is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. The game will feature some of the biggest names in boxing history ranging from legends to current stars. In addition to fighters, it will feature various real-life venues, deep customization options, and a personalized career mode.
Unfortunately, we are not sure when we’ll have access to the game. Steel City Interactive announced in July that Steam Early Access is no longer coming. The next announcement of when we can play ESBC will be a full release date. If you need to catch up on everything we need to know about ESBC, you can do so here.
