The WBC heavyweight champion was in Batley to open a new branch of boxing-themed diner Mr T's.

A boxing-themed burger restaurant in Batley is making headlines after WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder popped in to open their new branch.

Tauseef Malik, the owner of Mr T's, certainly does not lack in ambition when it comes to enticing big-name stars to feast under pugilistic artworks including one of Wilder's prospective rival, Anthony Joshua.

Floyd Mayweather and Tyson Fury have previously been tempted by the Mr T's fare – and Malik will stop at nothing to continue serving up celebrity endorsements.

FLOYD MAYWEATHER

Following a show at the Liverpool Arena, Mayweather rolled up at Mr T's for an early morning burger in March 2017 – and caused such a commotion local police had to close the road.

TYSON FURY

Hundreds of fans flocked back to the restaurant in February when Tyson Fury turned up to sample the 'Gypsy King Burger' which was named in his honour.

Apparently inspired by Mayweather's previous visit, Wilder met fans and media as he officially opened Mr T's latest branch – and created his own signature milkshake.

Among the other luminaries lined up to visit the burgeoning burger business is no less than Hollywood icon Sylvester Stallone. "Rocky Balboa is almost certainly coming," Malik told the Bradford Telegraph and Argus. "We're just confirming the details."
