Wilder announces boxing return after double loss to Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder has been offered a fight with Joe Joyce for his return to boxing later this year.

Former heavyweight champion Wilder hasn’t fought since being knocked out by Tyson Fury last October. He has considered retirement after the devastating loss, but announced last week that he will continue his career in the ring.

There are several exciting matchups ahead for the feared knockout artist, but Queensbury Promotions boss Frank Warren believes Wilder should fight Olympic silver medalist Joe Joyce. The undefeated 36-year-old is scheduled to fight on July 2, but does not yet have a confirmed opponent.

“He was in grueling fights with Tyson [Fury]. The last one was a classic,” Warren said of Wilder on iFL TV. “When you talk about the best fights of the last 20 years, that fight [Fury-Wilder III] is definitely one of them,”

Wilder lost his WBC title to Fury in their rematch two years ago and suffered the same fight in their trilogy fight. Part of his decision to fight again is because he thinks American champions are necessary for boxing to survive.

“One thing about boxing that I have proven is that boxing thrives on excitement but the excitement of an American champion. Once that dies, so does boxing,” a- he told Blue Blood Sports TV.

“That was living proof, because I’m coming back by popular demand. That’s all I’ve heard up and down. It’s just an amazing feeling, so many people have reached out to me and told me it was important. Without an American heavyweight boxing really isn’t exciting.”
