Wilder received a six-month medical suspension after his loss to Tyson Fury

Following his knockout loss to Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder has been given a six-month medical suspension, dealing another severe blow to the Bronze Bomber’s boxing career.

The Gypsy King knocked down the American heavyweight three times on his way to win in their trilogy battle last Saturday.

After the violent encounter, Wilder was taken to a Nevada hospital to be checked out, and he will have surgery on a fractured hand next week.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has suspended him until April 8 as a result of his injuries, meaning he cannot return to the ring until then unless he has been medically cleared by a doctor.

When he returns to his native state of Alabama next week, Wilder is scheduled to undergo surgery.

Shelly Finkel, his co-manager, told The Sun:

‘Deontay shattered his right hand behind the third knuckle and will need surgery next week.’

‘He’ll need surgery; the knuckle is fine; it’s the bone behind it that’s broken.’ He’s sore, but he’s well; he returned home yesterday.

‘He’s recuperating, and if everything goes well after the hand surgery, he’ll probably return to the ring in April or May next year.’

Following his victory, Fury was also given a normal 45-day punishment. Should Dillian Whyte win his fight with Otto Wallin on October 30 at the 02 Arena, the Gypsy King is anticipated to face mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte in 2022.
