Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is looking to make the biggest fights possible, as the 36-year-old boxer continues his career in the coming weeks.

Wilder has been out of the ring since last October, when he was stopped in the eleventh round of his sensational trilogy fight with current WBC champion Tyson Fury.

The 'Bronze Bomber' will return to the ring on October 15, when he faces Robert Helenius at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The fight will headline a Fox Sports Pay-Per-View event.

Initially, Wilder admittedly was nearing the path of retirement - but he decided to continue his career to pursue the biggest fights out there.

Should he defeat Helenius, then Wilder will be in line to collide with former unified champion Andy Ruiz in a final WBC eliminator.

But there are other avenues to pursue, like a fight with WBO, IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk, who plans to be at ringside for Wilder's upcoming fight.

There are also options like Anthony Joshua, Joe Joyce, and several others.

"[I'm] here to make nothing but great fights. I wouldn’t say it’s a new start. I’d just say I’m in a different mindset. I’m soaking in my peace and happiness. I’m in a great place in life. In spirit. And in heart, man. I can’t explain it," Wilder told Daily Mail.

"People don’t know me. They see me in the ring and they judge me off that. The saying for me is: to love him is to know him. I’m always at peace, I’m always happy. Because if you don’t have happiness or peace, you don’t have nothing."
