Wilder got knocked out by Fury in the 11th round of the absolutely epic fight, and he’ll now need to wait several months before fighting again.

In the event a doctor clears Wilder sooner, he could potentially return before the six months are up.

At the end of the day, this suspension is just a precautionary and won’t mean much. Wilder just needs to take some time to heal up.

The last thing they want to do is rush him back in the ring after the beating Fury gave him. I mean, he laid into him by the time the bout was over.

It was total domination in the 11th round.

I’m sure Wilder will bounce back, continue to fight and make himself a ton of money. It’s just going to take some time.

Still, it was a hell of a fight and I had a blast watching it.
