DEONTAY WILDER has broken his silence after police reportedly found a gun and drugs in his luxury Rolls Royce.

The LAPD allegedly found the firearm in the former WBC heavyweight champion’s luxury ride after pulling him over on Tuesday morning.

The Bronze Bomber broke his silence on his arrest on Twitter

According to TMZ, cops pulled over the Bronze Bomber for having an obstructed license plate and “illegally tinted windows”.

After smelling marijuana coming from the vehicle, the police searched it and discovered a 9mm pistol in his possession.

Wilder, 37, was taken into custody but posted bond and was subsequently released five hours later.

And the hard-hitting heavyweight has addressed his arrest in a short and sweet tweet.

The Alabama slammer tweeted: “I’d rather be safe than sorry. The End.”

Vicious knockout artist Wilder is currently on course for an eagerly-anticipated showdown with long-time rival Anthony Joshua.

The fight is currently in the works for December – with Saudi Arabia expected to host the dust-up.

Former unified heavyweight champion Joshua said of Wilder: “He is good, I respect him, I don’t undermine him. That will make me raise my game.

“I respect what he has done and what he has done in this division.

“It is hard to become a champion and he did it so I have to respect that.

“It’s going to be a tough fight but I am confident in myself. I’m a better, more well-rounded athlete, a better, more well-rounded fighter.

“In terms of it getting delivered [from my side], I honestly believe it is 95 per cent there.”

Wilder hasn’t set foot inside the ring since his brutal one-punch knockout of former sparring partner Robert Helenius last October.

That stoppage of the Nordic Nightmare saw him bounce back to winning ways following consecutive stoppage losses to Tyson Fury.

A boxer uses his body to protect himself against attacks. He does this using his legs and arms, elbows as well as hands, knees and feet.

Legs

Boxers should use the legs to protect themselves against kicks. If he gets kicked, he raises one leg and turns away from his attacker. If the attacker is coming from the front, he will bend at the knees to avoid getting kicked on either side. If the attack comes from behind, however, he can stand straight up and block the kick by his foot.

Elbows

Because they cause great pain, elbow strikes are extremely effective. An elbow strike can be delivered directly or indirectly. Directly means that your opponent is hit with your forearm. However, indirectly means that your elbow strike is delivered with another part or your arm.

Hands

Boxers use their arms to stop incoming blows. To do so, they raise their fists above their head and move them towards the direction of the attack. They then make contact with their attacker’s fist.

Knees

Stances

  • A low stance
