We await Deontay Wilder’s ring return with great interest. It’s been a year since we last saw the former WBC heavyweight champ in the ring, and as everyone knows, it was not a good night for “The Bronze Bomber,” Wilder’s alter ego, nor was it a good night for Wilder the real person. And since the 7th round stoppage loss at the hands of Tyson Fury, things have got even worse. Wilder still insists he won the first fight with Fury, that he knocked him out in that 12th round, while the 35-year-old has honestly and truthfully come out with every excuse in the book in an effort to explain the second fight. In fact, Wilder might have come out with enough material to fill a new book in as far as excuses for losing a boxing match go.
There is a new interview with Wilder over on Marcus Watson Live, and along with again insisting he “hands down” won the first fight with Fury, Wilder said he is going to come back and “clean out the division.” A fan could be excused for asking, ‘which division?’ Wilder did speak some time ago of his desire to drop down to cruiserweight and win belts there. But all jokes aside, can Wilder possibly come again and, as he declares he will do, “go to the top?”
