Deontay Wilder Is Hit With a Six-month Medical Suspension After His Defeat By Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder has been hit with a six-month suspension in the aftermath of his knockout defeat to Tyson Fury in Las Vegas.

The Bronze Bomber was unable to exact revenge on the Gypsy King for his loss in their second bout, as Fury knocked Wilder down three times on his way to victory in their trilogy fight.

Wilder was taken to hospital to be checked over after the fight and it has been reported that he is set to undergo surgery on a broken hand. 

The Nevada State Athletic Commission have now suspended him until April 8, unless he is cleared by a doctor beforehand.

Fury has been handed the standard 45-day suspension following his victory which was his first ever world heavyweight title defence. 

Wilder has now suffered back-to-back defeats for the first time in his career, after having previously not lost a single bout in 43 fights.
