Now, even a year later, he is still in the same position as the boxing world continues to hit out at him. Croatian heavyweight, Alen Babic, was the latest name to ridicule ‘The Bronze Bomber’. Furthermore, he stated that Tyson Fury had terrorized Deontay Wilder in their in-ring collision.

In a conversation with Pro Boxing Fans, ‘The Savage’ said, “Fury beat him, Fury terrorized him with his beating, right? Just put your head down and say I got beat by a better man and then I am gonna return or I’m not. So, that’s that simple. You don’t need to say he (Tyson Fury) did this, he did that. F*** crazy.”

Babic advised Wilder to return and stop making excuses or diverting the issues from boxing. He appeared vexed with the American knockout specialist and thoroughly criticized him in the interview.

Babic added, “Wilder didn’t talk boxing for like one year and I watch boxing, I follow boxers, I don’t want to follow preachers. Go preach to your church.”

After almost a year of inactivity, fans are still unaware of who Wilder will stand across in the ring when he makes his comeback.
