American professional boxer, Deontay Wilder has been suspended from boxing for six weeks after he sustained severe injuries in brutal defeat to Tyson Fury on Saturday night.
Deontay Wilder suffered the first professional defeat of his career as he was knocked down twice before his defeat to his British rival, 31, as his team threw in the towel in the seventh round last.
According to sportbible.com, the boxer went to the hospital, and missed the post-fight press conference, over fears of a burst eardrum but he ultimately needed just seven stitches for a cut in his ear.
However, it has been confirmed in reports that the American boxer has been given a six-week medical suspension by the Nevada State Commission, meaning he can’t fight until April 8th or compete until April 23rd.
Wilder in an interview on Monday night said the first time he’d spoken since his seventh-round defeat, he will be invoking the rematch clause in his contract and taking the trilogy fight.
