After his last fight, whereby he stopped the highly respected Chris Arreola, it was announced that Deontay Wilder had suffered some injuries that needed surgery, a broken right hand and a torn bicep.

We understand that the WBC champion has had one bout of surgery on his right hand but still requires additional surgery which will take place sometime this week.

With the reigning WBC champion requiring further surgery, it is being suggested that the champion could be out of the ring until November or December, or even longer depending upon how things gone on the operating table.

Talking about the situation, Wilder?s co-manager Jay Deas is quoted in the media as remarking,

?We hope to be back in the ring in ideal circumstances by November.

?We?re really not missing much and are probably within a month of our schedule anyway. But we?ll let his body dictate that. We?re probably not going to know anything definite for another day or so.?

Although boxers are susceptible to injury, you?d imagine that Wilder is somewhat downbeat at having picked up two serious ones in what was a voluntary defence of his title with the soul aim of keeping busy for the bigger and better things ahead.
