Wilder’s opponent Joseph Parker delivered a huge upset on Saturday by handing former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder his second career defeat.

Froch explained how the three bouts Wilder had with Fury played a part in that loss.

Carl Froch is a British former professional boxer. He competed from 2002 to 2014 and has since worked as a boxing analyst and commentator.

He was born in 1977 in Nottingham, United Kingdom. Carl Froch is known for his achievements in the super middleweight division. He stands at 6 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 168 pounds. His reach is 75 inches (191 cm).

Froch said the following on his YouTube channel: ‘I feel that those [Fury] fights have taken a lot out of Deontay Wilder. He got knocked down a few times, badly hurt, stopped. Those beatings, they can’t go unnoticed. They take the stamina bar down.

‘Every single fight ages you. You leave a piece of you in that ring every time you have a bad fight.

‘I’m sorry, I think he’s about finished. I don’t think his mind’s in the right place, I think that performance was not the Deontay Wilder that I expect. This is now an old guy who’s been beaten a few times now. Twice off Fury and now Parker.

‘And Parker, we know his levels. He’s lost to Whyte, he’s lost to AJ. This is a guy that’s not really performing at world level. I’m not saying he can’t – he might be back. Parker is back, done really well.

‘I think Deontay Wilder’s finished. I don’t want to take the shine off Parker by playing down Deontay Wilder, cause that was a great performance … but I think Deontay Wilder needs to just finish.’

Concerning Parker’s performance, Froch said, ‘Joseph Parker did great. I thought Deontay Wilder was f***ing awful.

‘It was a terrible performance. Where does Deontay Wilder go from here now?

‘It was the worst performance I’ve seen from Deontay Wilder in a long time, but it might’ve been because Joseph Parker was that good.’

Deontay Wilder has promised that he will return.
