And now the 36-year-old has suggested it could mark the end of his career as well.

“These are mixed feelings because in the end I achieved all of my goals in this sport,” he said on an episode of Cold As Balls.

“I told my daughter when she had one that I would be a champion and that I would be able to support her beyond her belief.

” I did it. There are a lot of things that I have accomplished that I think I have to prove to anyone because I have already proven [myself].

“Or should I just retire and focus on the other things I want to get into?” “

Wilder vs. Oleksandr Usyk

Wilder may have lost his WBC title to Fury, but that doesn’t mean he can no longer compete at the world level.

Usyk now owns the WBA, IBF and WBO belts and would be a fascinating clash with the American.

What would prevail – Usyk’s elite boxing ability or Wilder’s unmatched punch power?

Usyk was the undisputed WBA, WBC, IBF and WBO cruiserweight world champion, and is now WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion

Wilder vs. Anthony Joshua

Two years ago it was boxing’s undisputed heavyweight title fight, but now neither man has a belt under his belt.

Either way, Wilder vs Joshua remains one of the best fights to go in the division today.

Both men are blessed with explosive power and it seems highly unlikely that will go the distance.

Wilder vs. Dillian Whyte

For a long time, Whyte looked for a mandatory shot on Wilder.

It never materialized, but a great rivalry developed between them regardless.

It would be nice to see that finally settled in the ring.

Wilder vs. Andy Ruiz Jr

Ruiz Jr is now on the return trail following his loss to Joshua.

With Wilder in a similar position having been beaten by Fury, a clash between the two could propel the winner into the title race.

This appears to be the most realistic fight of the four, with both men lined up with Al Haymon’s PBC.
