At 23 years old, on November 15, 2008, Wilder began his professional boxing career at the Vanderbilt University Memorial Gymnasium in Nashville, Tennessee. His debut match was against Ethan Cox (2–2–1), and he secured a victory with a second-round technical knockout (TKO) by knocking Cox down three times.
