Deontay Wilder has announced that he is releasing a music single with his brother, ahead of his comeback to boxing. Wilder last featured in the ring in October last year, where he lost to long-time rival Tyson Fury, thanks to an 11th round knockout.

After a long period out of the boxing limelight, the American star announced that he was set to make a return to the sport, after initial rumours suggested he was ready to retire and hang up his gloves. Wilder confirmed his return when speaking at a ceremony to unveil a life-size statue of himself in his hometown Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

Speaking about ‘continuing his journey’ he said: “This moment of time, my goodness. In the midst of this journey, I’m being blessed. It’s not like I’m retired and it’s been ten, twenty years. This is now that I’m getting my flowers.

“I can’t stop right now. I must continue with my journey. love you guys so much. I can’t end it like this. This journey isn’t over with. I must continue my journey.” His return to boxing though is not the only big announcement the Bronze Bomber has confirmed in recent days, after also revealing he is making a move into the music scene.
