DEONTAY WILDER accused of domestic violence by fiancée as she is granted restraining order against star boxer

Saturday, June 8, 2024 - American boxer, Deontay Wilder has been accused of domestic violence by his fiancée, Telli Swift, who has now been granted a restraining order against him.

This follows on from claims that he abused her on multiple occasions over the last six years.

Swift, who began dating Wilder back in 2015, applied for the restraining order in Los Angeles late last week and a judge granted it on Monday.

The restraining order was granted two days after Wilder was knocked out in a high-profile bout with Chinese boxer Zhilei Zhang.

The order requires Wilder to remain at least 100 yards away from Swift and the daughter that they share until June 25 - when both parties will appear in court.

In her application, Swift has accused Wilder of choking her 'at least five times' since 2018. She also claims he spat on her several times and even said she was 'nearly suffocated' when Wilder shoved her face into a pillow in a fit of rage for an extended period of time.

She also claims that in mid-April, Wilder was able to gain access to her laptop without consent and sent disturbing messages to her personal and professional contacts.

Swift also says that Wilder would constantly ridicule and threaten her - while expecting her to have sexual intercourse with him 'three times a day'.

She also says that on April 15, she was thrown out of their Atlanta residence - despite being in the midst of recovery from a recent invasive surgery.

Swift got engaged to the fighter back in 2018 and says she's been living in their LA-area residence since getting the boot in Atlanta.

She brought their six-year-old daughter along with her but claims that Wilder has been spying on them through the home's surveillance system.

Swift added that she was afraid of Wilder getting violent with her again when he made his way back to the LA home from the Zhang bout in Saudi Arabia.

'I believe Deontay is capable of being physically violent towards me upon his return in June because he has expressed that he is furious with me since April and has been physically abusive with me in the past,' she said.

The couple had been engaged since 2018 and they both featured on the reality television show WAGS Atlanta.

Wilder has eight children; three boys and five girls; including four with his ex-wife Jessica Scales.

His most recent bout ended in a fifth-round knockout which dropped his career record to 43-4.

Thefour losses have come within his last five fights, including back-to-back defeats to Tyson Fury.
