Former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has revealed he suffered a bicep injury on his right hand during his second fight against Tyson Fury.
The Bronze Bomber started the fight with several punches with his right hand and seemed aggressive. However, he then stopped using his right, while the Gipsy King took the advantage to eventually knock out his opponent in the 7th round.
Wilder has blamed his heavy costume after the defeat and now he has talked about the bicep injury and how he’s recovering after the surgery. Wilder hasn’t trained until May.
“It’s going well. I’m in therapy. I ended up injuring it during my last fight. Everything is going well with it, just working on recovering and getting back to full health.” said Wilder to Premier Boxing Champion Podcast (cited by Boxingnews24)
“Hopefully, we can get back to camp and get ready to go again sometime at the end of the year. I can’t work out right now. That’s something I’m looking forward to once I get it healed with my arm.
“I’m looking forward to working out. Right now, I’m just sitting back and getting taken care of. That’s not a bad position now,” he added.
Meanwhile, Wilder has also revealed he is inviting two new people to his training camp, as he will start preparing for the trilogy against Fury.
