Ever since then, he hasn’t fought anyone, thus staying out of the game. But the Alabama native has immersed himself in grilling training regimes and has showcased some exemplary boxing skills.

In a fresh video released by Fight Hub TV, Wilder is seen landing exuberant shots on the mitts. Alongside his crushing power, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ showed slick movements to stun one and all.

Prior to facing Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder enjoyed an enigmatic run in the heavyweight roster. He still ranks among the most intimidating boxers of all time as he possesses some stern knockout power to annihilate his opponents.

But things didn’t go as planned for the Alabama native in the rematch with Fury. In this fight, he couldn’t land one significant shot on the Brit, nor he could dodge the heat coming off ‘The Gypsy King’s hands. As a result, Wilder suffered a brutal loss and ended up losing his hard-earned WBC heavyweight strap.

However, Wilder has taken that loss on his chin now and moved ahead to find his best version. He is now solely focused on his return and doesn’t wish to budge an inch from the same. That said, it’ll be intriguing to see if Wilder gets back into his old momentum and decides to come back.

Who should Deontay Wilder face on his return?

For his return fight, Wilder will have a number of options to go ahead with. Over the past few months, a matchup between him and the WBC interim heavyweight champ, Dillian Whyte, is in contention.

But nothing official has been revealed yet. Additionally, a matchup between him and ‘The Destroyer’ Andy Ruiz Jr. is also in contention.

That said, the ex-champ will have to pick one stout contender to make his return worth the wait.
