Music icon Bruce Springsteen ‘broke hearts’ after missing an awards show fundraiser for his own charity
Out of all the days to be sick, unfortunately for Bruce Springsteen and his wife, Patti Scialfa, the day landed on the date of the inaugural American Music Honours awards show.
The show happened to be a fundraiser for the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music at Monmouth University.
Shortly after the show kicked off, the Archives’ executive director Bob Santelli announced to an audience of approximately 700 people that the couple would not be attending due to a COVID-19 diagnosis.

“It broke our hearts around six a.m. this morning when I got a call that two of the most important people who were supposed to be here, Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa, unfortunately came down with COVID,” he said
“They’re alive. Don’t overreact,” added the show’s host, Jon Stewart. “You can still see them in concert. They’re home sitting by the fire eating French onion soup.”
Despite not being able to attend physically, Springsteen made sure to make his presence known, taping two videos to present awards to Darlene Love and fellow E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt.
Stewart joked that Springsteen “with COVID looks better than me,” adding that he appeared “eerily healthy.”
“Aren’t you supposed to have sniffles or something?” he said. “We shut down the world for a year and a half.”

Governor Phil Murphy issued a proclamation at the inaugural American Music Honours event declaring September 23, Springsteen’s birthday, “Bruce Springsteen Day” in the Garden State.
“There’s been 14 administrations in New Jersey since Springsteen started performing,” Murphy said. “I can’t believe it’s taken this long.”
Springsteen fans around the world have celebrated the date for years. The honour was bestowed partly because Springsteen of Freehold created “the soundtrack to our glory days,” reads the proclamation.
“It’s not a rest area, but it’s nice,” quipped Stewart, an obvious reference to the Jon Bon Jovi rest stop and others in New Jersey. “It’s not like taking a whiz to ‘Livin’ on a Prayer,’ but it’ll do.”
The evening was a celebration of rock and soul music, honouring Van Zandt, Love, Steve Earle and Sam Moore of Sam and Dave for their musical contributions and career.

This isn’t the first time abrupt illness has gotten in the way for Springsteen with three shows on the current tour postponed due to “illness,” although who was ill, and the type of illness, was not disclosed.
COVID itself has also caused disruption for the tour with E Street Band members Steven Van Zandt, Nils Lofgren, Jake Clemons and Soozie Tyrell missing shows after testing positive.
The next show on the map for the band will be performed in Spain on April 28.

Deontay Wilder Net Worth: Career Earnings, Biggest Fight Purse & Endorsement Deals Of ‘The Bronze Bomber’ – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Here is everything you need to know about the single hardest puncher in boxing and the former world heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder. This includes his net worth, career earnings and endorsement deals.
Deontay Wilder Net Worth
Deontay Wilder has been a professional boxer since his debut back in November 2008. He has been boxing consistently for over 15 years straight now in the pro ranks, earning more and more money as his career has progressed up to world level.
The 1985-born boxing superstar is one of the most fearsome punchers the sport of boxing has ever seen. Deontay Wilder’s boxing record consists of 43 wins – 42 of which have come via knockout. The only man to go the distance with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ was Bermane Stiverne, who Wilder then knocked out in a round in their rematch.
As of December 2023, it is reported that Deontay Wilder’s net worth is somewhere in the region of $30 million (source: Celebrity Net Worth).
Of course, given the fact the Alabama man is supremely wealthy, he likes his fair share of luxury items too. Wilder has acquired real estate, expensive jewelry, flashy cars and various other assets that have contributed to his riches.
Wilder reportedly has eight kids in total from various relationships, including one with his current girlfriend Telli Swift. Evidently a fair amount of Wilder’s earnings in the ring is used on providing for his big family and loved ones. Be sure to see Deontay Wilder’s net worth continue to grow for the remainder of his career, as long as that lasts.

After 46 professional boxing fights, Deontay Wilder’s biggest fight purse is reported to have been around $28 million (source: Forbes). This was reportedly how much ‘The Bronze Bomber’ earned for his rematch bout with Tyson Fury back in February 2020.
Wilder went into the fight as the marginal favorite with the best offshore sportsbooks, given that he was still the reigning champion following his draw with Fury 14 months prior. Despite getting conclusively knocked out in Round 7 of the fight, this still remains the biggest purse of Wilder’s career to date.
Deontay Wilder has reportedly earned a total sum of around $95 million in his professional boxing career from his debut up to now. This is right up there with the likes of heavyweight rivals Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, and is more than the likes of Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and Terence Crawford.
The 2008 Beijing Olympic Bronze Medallist has been earnings even figure purses ever since he became world heavyweight champion back in January 2015. Of his last 10 fights, just one has been less than seven figures (Washington – $900k). In fact, Wilder has earned around $80 million just from his last five fights.
See the full table below for a detailed breakdown of the purses Deontay Wilder has received for his last 10 fights. All in all, it is fair to say that the 38-year-old isn’t short of a dollar or two. His net worth, salary and fight purses will continue to rise as his career rolls on at world level.

Deontay Wilder Endorsements & Sponsorship
Although the vast majority of Deontay Wilder’s earnings comes from prize fighting, he also earns an extremely lucrative sum of money outside of the ring. These vast endorsement deals from outside of the ring are a big player in boosting Wilder’s net worth and salary.
The 1985-born boxing phenom’s biggest endorsement deal as of today is his partnership with Everlast. Wilder has shown great loyalty to Everlast for several years during his boxing career, and still sports their boxing gear to this day. He also regularly uses Everlast boxing gloves in the ring for his world title fights, as well as during training camps.
Some of Deontay Wilder’s other endorsements include his partnerships with PureKana CBD, Raising Cane’s and IHC Crypto. There is not much else known about Wilder’s endorsements and sponsors outside of his career as a boxer.
All in all, Deontay Wilder’s various sponsorships certainly help boost his net worth. Per Forbes, he reportedly earns an estimated $500,000 per annum through endorsements. Ultimately though it is punching people in the face for a living that pays ‘The Bronze Bomber’ the most money.
