World Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder will launch his new children’s book, “Deontay, The Future World Champ”, by Tony Bowers. The debut will take place on Thursday (June 25th) at two scheduled book signings in Tuscaloosa.

Here's a great opportunity to meet the champ and get your hands on his new book! The first of the two signing events on Thursday will be at The Weaver Branch of The Tuscaloosa Public Library at 5:30pm.
