I’m a new man after taking South American psychedelic drug, says Deontay Wilder ahead of Saudi fight card
DEONTAY WILDER is feeling like a new man after taking a South American psychedelic drug during a retreat in Costa Rica.
The Bronze Bomber is set to return to the ring after a 14-month lay-off when he takes on Joseph Parker inthis Saturday.
Wilder, 38, has fought just twice since losing his WBC heavyweight belt to Tyson Fury in February 2020, being defeated again by the Gypsy King before bouncing back with a routine win over Robert Helenius last October.
The former champ appears to be on a collision course for fellow dethroned heavyweight star Anthony Joshua, should both win on Saturday night.
And the Bronze Bomber is expectant going into his clash with Parker, having had a life-changing experience with South American psychoactive brew ayahuasca .
The drug comes from stewing the leaves and stem of a jungle vine that grows in the Amazon rainforest, and it is usually drunk as a tea.
Ayahuasca takes 20 to 60 minutes to kick in, and its effects can last up to six hours.
Typical effects include visual hallucinations, euphoria, paranoia, and vomiting.
It contains dimethyltryptamine – or DMT – which is deemed a Class A drug in the United Kingdom, making it illegal on these shores.
Ayahuasca is also banned in the UK, but can be taken legally elsewhere.

Actress Megan Fox and boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly have claimed to have taken ayahuasca.
While NFL star Aaron Rodgers is a big proponent.
Speaking to The Telegraph ahead of his return to the ring, Wilder gushed over his experience with ayahuasca, claiming that wife Telli Swift has even seen a positive change in him since.
He said: “Ah, man, ayahuasca has been… Man, it’s been one of the top things in my life that I’m glad that I’ve experienced.
“One of the best journeys to experience, it’s been a beautiful thing for me, and if you ask my wife, she’ll say that it made me more sensitive.
“And she’s probably right, but it also made me happier as well. I find myself appreciating even the smallest of the smallest things – and not saying that I didn’t before – but the appreciation level has increased.
“Ayahuasca has done some beautiful things for a lot of individuals, not only just including myself, where they brought affirmation to their life or some type of understanding of the path that they are running in their life.
“I’m looking forward to doing it many, many more times. I’m actually looking to do it after this fight as well.
“They made the medicine on site, the DMT, and it was just a beautiful experience. I highly recommend everyone to try it out, I really do, it really has helped me in my life.
“I am one of the happiest people I know in life, and God is good.”
Ayahuasca is made from the leaves of the Psychotria viridis bush, which provides the DMT.
The Bronze Bomber is expecting to produce an early stoppage against Parker this weekend, telling TMZ: “It’s a fight, guys.
“When he’s fighting, he always keeps you on the edge of your seat because you don’t know when it’s gonna happen but when it happens, bam, baby! Goodnight!”
With the help of coach Andy Lee and Fury, however, Parker believes that he can cause an upset.
He told ESPN: “I feel very confident with the game plan that Andy’s come up with. We’re getting good advice from Tyson.
“He’s the only man who’s been in the ring with him three times and beaten him twice [with one draw].
“I have a really good set up in Ireland and in Morecambe Bay. One of [my] fights I used Tyson’s house, which he gave me to use for camp. I have an apartment which I stay in when I’m in Morecambe.”
