Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, 36-years-old, admits that he's on the fence with respect to fighting again in the future.

In October, Wilder took part in one of the best heavyweight fights in recent years. He was knocked out in the eleventh round of his trilogy fight with Tyson Fury.

Wilder went down in the third, before coming back and dropping Fury twice in the following round. Fury would rally back to drop Wilder in the tenth and once more in the eleventh.

The big puncher suffered a hand injury in the loss and was forced to undergo surgery.

At the moment he's recovering from the procedure and spending time with family.

While he sits on the sidelines, Wilder is also figuring out his future in the sport.

“It’s mixed feelings because ultimately I have accomplished all my goals in this sport. I told my daughter when she was one that I’d be a champion and I’d be able to support her beyond her belief,” Wilder stated during Kevin Hart's show on the Laugh Out Loud Network.

“I’ve done [the things I promised to my daughter]. There’s a lot of things that I’ve accomplished that I feel I [don't] have to prove [anything] to anyone because I’ve already proven [it to myself]. Should I push forward? Should I give it a go one more time? Or should I just retire and focus on the other things that I already have, other things that I want to get into?”

There are still plenty of opportunities for Wilder in the heavyweight division.

Wilder's co-manager, Shelly Finkel, expects his boxer to return to the ring in 2022. He believes Wilder's next fight is very likely to take place in the first half of the coming year.
