Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has vowed to reclaim the WBC title he lost to Tyson Fury.
Wilder was stopped in the seventh round by Fury after his corner threw in the towel to end the fight at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas last weekend.
The 34-year-old had blamed the weight of his ring-walk costume for the first career defeat and reports had emerged about him sacking his Trainer Mark Breland who threw in the towel in the seventh round to end the fight.
Against reports, he acknowledged his corner only had his best interests at heart when they brought the fight to a premature halt.
The Bronze Bomber has a contractual clause to force a third meeting, which has to take place by mid-July and took to social Media to inform his fans of his looming return.
“Hello, my people, my Bomb Squad Army, my Bomb Squad Nation, all my loved ones around the world,” Wilder began.
“I just wanted to let you know that I am here. Your king is here. We ain’t goin’ nowhere, for the war has just begun. I will rise again. I am strong. I am a king. They can’t take my pride. I am a warrior. I’m a king that will never give up! I’m a king that will fight to the death. And if anyone don’t understand that, they don’t understand what it is to go to war, don’t understand what it is to fight.
The American promised to reclaim his lost title in a few months.
“We will rise again. We will regain the title. I will be back,” he said.
“We will hold our heads up high. Your king is in great spirit. We will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title! I’ll see you in a few months. For the war has just begun. All my love to all my people.”
