It was great day, as Tuscaloosa honored the new WBC Heavyweight Champion of the World, Deontay Wilder! See our photo gallery from the celebration at the amphitheater.

The cold January day sure didn't stop a large crowd of fans, friends and family from showing up. No doubt, it was a tremendous gesture to show support and how proud we are! We like celebrations around here and this was no exception, as the seats filled up! A pat on the back for the organizers to quickly put together such a first class event.

Below, check out the photos we snapped. The sights include the boxing ring stage made for the event. Plus, Tuscaloosa Mayor Maddox speaking. He would give Deontay a key to the city! Plus, see the 'Bronze Bomber' walk through the crowd and hold up that iconic green belt!

We also shot video of Deontay Wilder entering the amphitheater to the roar of the crowd! Just hit the link below to see it.
