Deontay Wilder is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in boxing. Wilder has been counted out by many since his first loss to Tyson Fury in 2020. Moreover, his second loss to Fury in October this year has added to the question marks surrounding his future in boxing.
However, Deontay Wilder is a true warrior and is not ready to give up. ‘Bronze Bomber’ recently revealed that he is still looking forward to achieving the goals that he has left. Michael Benson took to Twitter to share what Wilder had to say about his future (h/t Telli Talks):
“I’m still in love with the sport of boxing. I do still have goals in the sport. I’m looking to accomplish the goals that I still have left. I broke my hand, so I’m in a healing process right now. After this, I’m looking to get right back into it.”
Take a look at Michael Benson’s Twitter post below:
Deontay Wilder broke his hand in his trilogy fight with Tyson Fury which is set to keep him out of the sport for a while. As mentioned by Wilder himself, he won’t be able to return until his hand heals. When healthy, the ‘Bronze Bomber’ took the heavyweight division by storm, knocking out opponents left and right.
The only man he failed to beat throughout his career was Tyson Fury. Despite the losses, Wilder is seemingly still in good spirits and hungry to go chasing after his goals in the sport.
