Deontay Wilder Road To Recovery – Showtime Boxing has released an update on WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder called “Road To Recovery.”
The world last saw Wilder this past July when he successfully defended his WBC belt against veteran Chris Arreola. That fight marked the fourth title defense for Wilder, who first won the belt in January of 2015 when he outpointed Bermane Stiverne. Wilder stopped Arreola in round eight, however he had injured his right arm to the extent that he was largely a one armed fighter when the bell rang. Afterwards the diagnosis listed multiple injuries in the form of a torn bicep and a broken hand.
Wilder will reportedly return in the first half of 2017, and the WBC world heavyweight champion will be keeping an eye on December 17th’s heavyweight matchup in Russia between Alexander Povetkin and Bermane Stiverne, a bout that pits the #1 and #2 ranked fighters under the WBC.
