Deontay Wilder has declared he is still ‘in love with boxing’ and intending to return to the boxing ring in his first interview since being knocked out by Tyson Fury in their trilogy fight.

The ‘Bronze Bomber’ has, as usual after one of his big fights, been taking time away from the spotlight following the second successive loss of his career.

A month-and-a-half on from the defeat though, he has broken his silence with an interview for his fiancée Telli Swift’s podcast.

“I’m feeling great, I’m doing great,” Wilder began.

“We didn’t get what we wanted [against Fury], but we still got something out of it.

“I think we got something even bigger out of it besides just a victory.

“I’m grateful for that. I’m blessed all the way around.

“With that being said, it’s no complaints at all, we just move forward.

“You come up to a certain point, as humans we feel we come up to a dead end or we fail, we think this is it for us.

“But when you’re travelling along your journey, nothing should be ‘this is it’.

“For me, this is not it, this is just the beginning. The best is yet to come from me.”

When asked if he’s already thinking about fighting again, Wilder replied: “I’m still in love with the sport of boxing.

“Although I have accomplished a lot of things, more than I could’ve imagined…
“I do still have goals in the sport, that’s why I still have love for it.

“I’m looking to accomplish the goals that I still have left…

“I broke my hand, so I’m in a healing process right now.

“Once this is over, I’ll resume training for sure.

“Boxing is a year-round sport, so you’ve always gotta be prepared, you’ve always gotta stay ready.

“After this, I’m looking to get right back in it.”
