Deontay Wilder has said he’s coming back. Who should he fight?
Former IBF belt-holder
You can sling him in with anyone, he’s so exciting but how about a Martin Bakole, a Joe Joyce or for the entertainment value in the build up imagine Dillian Whyte. There’d be a bit of needle in that one.
I’d like to see him in there with Dillian Whyte, Joe Parker or Andy Ruiz to show he can still operate at a high level.

Dillian Whyte would make an ideal return opponent. He just fought for a world title and lost against Tyson Fury who is only guy to have beaten Wilder.
From a managerial point of view I’d probably be looking for someone like Otto Wallin or Kubrat Pulev. Someone who isn’t quite world level but just on the fringe and I think they will give him a stern test back getting the rust off and getting back into winning ways.
The Andy Ruiz Jnr fight makes a lot of sense; former champion, well known in America, enough about him to get Wilder’s juices flowing. I think it would be useful for him to go a few rounds instead of a one or two round job too.
