Wilder continued: “It’s not about the financial things, I never have to return to boxing ever again in my life. I’ve set my life up.”

SunSport revealed this week that Wilder’s team expect the heavy hitter to return before the end of 2022.

Mathroom boxing chief Eddie Hearn has touted a potential fight with Derek Chisora.

Hearn said: “I always talk about the Deontay Wilder fight and people call me out for that.

“But at the end of the day, Wilder’s going to fight somebody and if Chisora beats Pulev, what are you going to say then?

“All of a sudden you start talking about him in fights with Joe Joyce, Daniel Dubois, see what happens with AJ and Oleksandr Usyk.

“Dillian Whyte 3, that’s not a fight I’m looking at, at the moment but all of a sudden if he beats Pulev, Dillian is coming off a defeat to Tyson Fury, why not do No3?

“The two fights were two of the best heavyweight fights I’ve ever seen, so No3 would also be a cracker.

“But it’s all about beating Pulev and I think for both guys it’s win or retire.”
