Deontay Wilder wasn’t going to walk out to the ring quietly on Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Instead, he went all out — and shocked plenty of fans at home in the process.

Wilder, ahead of his rematch with Luis Ortiz on Saturday night with a WBC title on the line, donned a very interesting outfit on his way out to the ring.

To say the least, his wardrobe choice was, well, unusual.

Naturally, fans had plenty of jokes to share on social media once they saw him, too.

While it may have been weird, it seems to have paid off. Wilder knocked out Ortiz at the end of the seventh round with a brutal right-handed punch.

It’s hard to hate on him after that.
