Wilder Declares Comeback: 'I'll Be Back!' Amid Shock Loss to Parker
Despite suffering a surprising defeat to Joseph Parker and missing out on a lucrative clash with Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder remains resolute about his boxing career, confidently declaring, “I’ll be back!”
The former WBC heavyweight champion, initially contemplating retirement after the upset loss in Saudi Arabia, took to social media to share his reflections. In an Instagram video, Wilder admitted to an off night, emphasizing timing issues and a failure to unleash his punches as planned.
Acknowledging the disappointment, Wilder expressed gratitude for the overwhelming support from fans worldwide. Maintaining an optimistic spirit, he assured everyone that this setback is not the end, promising a triumphant return to the ring.
While Joshua, victorious against Otto Wallin in the main event, remains open to a potential clash with Wilder, his promoter, Eddie Hearn, hinted at a different path. Filip Hrgovic, emerging as the mandatory challenger for Oleksandr Usyk’s IBF title, could be Joshua’s next opponent, setting the stage for a dynamic heavyweight showdown.
Joshua’s primary focus, however, is reclaiming the world champion title. With an eye on the winner of Usyk’s undisputed fight against Tyson Fury on February 17, Joshua aims to secure a third world championship or target any vacated belts in the proposed rematch.
As the heavyweight landscape undergoes shifts, Deontay Wilder’s comeback proclamation adds an intriguing layer to the unfolding drama, leaving fans curious about the next chapter in the dynamic world of boxing.
