Former WBC world champion champion Deontay Wilder has returned to training, with a ring return being rumored to take place in the next few months.
Wilder has been out of the ring since February of 2020, when he suffered the first defeat of his pro career.
In a pay-per-view main event, Tyson Fury stopped Wilder in seven rounds to capture the WBC world title at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Wilder would then exercise an immediate rematch clause.
But, then the coronavirus pandemic took over the entire planet.
The trilogy fight was pushed back several times.
By the final quarter of the year, Fury and his handlers claimed the rematch clause had expired.
Fury would then move forward with his goal of facing WBA, WBO, IBF, IBO champion Anthony Joshua in a full division unification.
Wilder was not going to walk away without a fight - and initiated a legal action to enforce his rematch clause with Fury.
A decision in the legal action is possibly going to land on a date in May.
Regardless of the legal outcome, Fury is moving forward with a fight against Joshua.
Wilder's comeback plans are unknown at the moment.
Malik Scott, the assistant trainer of Wilder, openly confirmed that his client was back to work - by posting a training photo to social media.
"Bronze Bomber, great session tonight comrade, its game time," Scott stated.
Wilder knocked out Scott in one round in 2014.
They were friendly prior to that meeting - and they continued their friendship in the aftermath of that fight.
Wilder eventually hired Scott as a trainer.
Scott now has added responsibility on the team, especially with Wilder's decision to fire assistant trainer Mark Breland - who the once-beaten boxer partially blamed for the loss to Fury.
It was Breland who threw in the towel during the seventh of Wilder's loss.
One the names kicked around to face Wilder in his comeback is former IBF world champion Charles Martin. Another name is former unified champion Andy Ruiz, who returns on May 1 against Chris Arreola.
