Amid several assumptions relating to why he lost to Joseph Parker in their last bout, former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has given his own reasons.
Wilder’s loss is the most shocking one boxing fans have seen recently in the heavyweight division, since nearly everyone expected him to make light work of Parker during the match.
Many asked Wilder to retire following the underwhelming performance, but the American who promised he would be back has given reasons for his defeat while speaking to ESNews.
His explanation was as follows:
‘It was a boring fight, nothing really happened. I went right back to training the next day. He really didn’t do nothing, they just went off the little flurries or whatever.
‘I was out the ring for nearly two years with only one round and faced someone who was consistently fighting.
‘I had less than three weeks to train. I had to go 10 to 12 hours. In the training for that I had to travel two times, 20 hours of travelling.
‘And those guys were already in Europe, they were only 2/3 hours away. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying what I had to go through.’
The pugilist could meet with Francis Ngannou at PFL as rumours are saying or make a return under the rules of boxing.See Dollar(USD) to Naira Black Market Exchange Rate Today!
