Did he really prove all of that on October 9? Yes.

As of now, there is no direct indication from the 35-year-old’s team regarding his next step. However, his coach recently said that he does not even want Wilder to think about boxing for a few months. Instead, he wants him to take some time off. Only time will tell if the Alabama native will return to the ring and attempt a re-entry into the win column.
