Deontay Wilder goes for a facial in Bradford before opening a restaurant in Batley – The Sun

DEONTAY WILDER enjoyed some pampering in Bradford before opening a new restaurant in 10 miles away in Batley.

And the heavyweight boxing world champ encouraged his fans to visit Prity salon to request the "Wilder facial".

But the boxer seemed to be confused and thought he was in Manchester – despite that city being in a different county.

Wilder was booked to open Mr T's newest restaurant in the West Yorkshire town of Batley on Thursday night.

And it's a chain well known by other boxers too.

SunSport reported how undefeated ring legend Floyd Mayweather visited their Bradford site in 2017 and was presented with a birthday cake.

And Tyson Fury, Wilder's nemesis, has also dropped in for some grub in the past.


But getting the WBC champ Wilder down could prove to be owner Tauseef Malik's greatest coup yet.

And the boxer was well relaxed before settling down at the Italian eatery.

That's because the 30-year-old enjoyed a good pampering earlier in the day at Prity salon.

A video shows Wilder laid on a bed being tended too, and he then spoke of his delight at getting the treatment.

In a clip shared on the company's Instagram page, he said: "I just got a Wilder facial, it was terrific, you've got to come in and get it.

"If you want your face to feel refreshed, then Prity salon is the place."


He then screamed his slogan "BombZquad" that made most in the salon jump.

Some hours later Wilder was settling down for his meal, but not before he made his own signature milkshake.

He then feasted on burgers, pizza and the restaurant's signature dish, parmesan chicken.

Labour leader of Kirklees Council, Shabir Pandoor tweeted out: "He’s a knockout! Great to meet the @WBCBoxing champ of the world, Deontay Wilder @BronzeBomber at the opening of Mr T’s in #Batley.

"DW is a big man with a big heart. His ambition matches that of the owners of yet another new enterprise in my home town."

Boxing fans are now waiting on the announcement of when his eagerly-anticipated rematch against Fury will be.

Before that one, Wilder will have another rematch – against Cuban veteran Luis Ortiz who he knocked out in March 2018.

Wayne Rooney goes teetotal to save his marriage to Coleen following drink-fuelled scandals – The Sun

BOOZY Wayne Rooney has ditched the drink and is seeking treatment to help him quit for good.

The ex-England and Manchester United ace, 33, will have sessions with a counsellor after wife Coleen tore him off a strip.

His decision to go dry comes just days after The Sun revealed that Roo was cutting short his stint in the US and returning to the UK in a bid to save his 11-year marriage.

A source said: “Wayne was drinking a fair amount in the States and it was causing huge problems with Coleen.

“It was like he was on self-destruct — he was boozing at home late into the night.

“Now he’s moving back in October, he wants to sort it out for good. He wants a completely fresh start and knows losing his unhealthy relationship with the bottle would be the best thing for them all.”

Wayne, who has four kids with Coleen — Kai, nine, Klay, six, Kit, three, and 18-month-old Cass — previously had counselling in 2016 to help him deal with England crashing out of the Euros.

The source said: “Coleen urged him to get help for his drinking, too, but at the time he wasn’t listening.”

But with Col, 33, becoming increasingly unhappy, Wayne signed a shock 18-month contract with Derby County last week, to be a player-coach.

He had joined DC United last summer and quickly became their top goal-scorer — but at the same time his personal life was spiralling out of control.

In January he was arrested for being drunk and disorderly at Washington airport following a flight from the UAE.

Then in February, The Sun revealed he had enjoyed a boozy bender with an American barmaid while in Florida with his teammates.

Star's own goal antics

  • 2010: Roo is propped up by pals after smoking a cig and allegedly relieving himself outside a Manchester nightclub.
  • 2012: He is fined £200,000 by boss Alex Ferguson for poor performance after night out.
  • 2014: Wayne sinks beers in Las Vegas after England crash out of the World Cup in group stages. Also gets so drunk with Piers Morgan he falls into plant pot.
  • 2015: He is knocked out by pal Phil Bardsley during boozy party.
  • l2017: Is arrested after being caught three times over drink-drive limit while driving party girl Laura Simpson’s car.

Furious Coleen later took off her wedding ring and told Wayne to sort his life out for the sake of their sons.

She and the kids had been living with Wayne in America but moved back to the UK this summer.

When she discovered Roo was also returning, she was overjoyed, telling pals: “We’re coming home.”
