Wilder is looking forward to the fight, but not his

Deontay Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs) broke social media silence with the first tweet in a long time. Unfortunately - for the Bronze Bomber fans - the American's activity had nothing to do with his career.

Wilder, 35, suffered his first professional defeat in February when he lost by TKO to Tyson Fury (30-0-1 21 KOs) and thus lost the WBC heavyweight title to the King of the Gypsies. After the defeat, the giant from Alabama practically "disappeared", did not give any interviews (except for one immediately after the fight for Yahoo Sports) and completely (much earlier) stopped posting on social networks.

Wilder's silence was all the more perplexing as he was due to meet Fury for the third time this year, and, according to the British promoters, the rematch clause had its time limits. Recently, Fury's promoters even reported that Wilder has definitely lost the right for the rematch with his abuser. How did the American react to this news? He didn't react at all.

Yesterday, the unexpectedly ousted champion "appeared" before his fans on Twitter to announce that he is looking forward to the fight of... Gervonta Davis vs. Leo Santa Cruz this Saturday.

What about Wilder's own career? Nothing is known about it yet. Wilder's manager Shelly Finkel insistently repeats that on December 19 the third fight of his ward with Tyson Fury will take place, who a few days ago officially announced that he would fight on December 5 with another opponent in the UK.
