DEONTAY WILDER has shown off his explosive power in his first workout since announcing plans to return to the ring.

A February 2020 defeat to Tyson Fury stripped the Bronze Bomber of his world titles and the two camps have failed to organise a trilogy contest.

Despite the Brit being on the verge of a unification fight with Anthony Joshua, Wilder remains intent on what he recently called ‘revenge’.

On Tuesday night, the American posted a clip of his workout with former heavyweight rival Malik Scott.

He captioned the post with a Filipino message, which translates as: “The Rebirth of the King.”

Scott was Wilder’s 31st pro career victim when he was flattened in the first round of their 2014 contest.

Since then, the pair have struck up a good relationship and the 40-year-old was enlisted to help train Wilder after they began sparring.

The former world champ, 35, fired coach Mark Breland following the Fury defeat.

Scott teased a potential showdown with Fury when posting the clip to his Instagram.

He wrote: “Retribution is on the menu., Watch Deontay Wilder’s explosive first training session since announcing comeback with Tyson Fury fight still on cards..Not long now., Watch Deontay Wilder’s explosive first training session since announcing comeback with Tyson Fury fight still on cards #eitherwaywewin #Thebigpayback.”

Wilder will likely have to wait for a third shot at Fury and both Dillian Whyte and Andy Ruiz Jr have been touted for a showdown before then.

During an appearance on the We Might Need Counselling Podcast, he alluded to the difficulties he is facing in grabbing the Gypsy King for another battle, and said: “Trust is hard to come by because it’s money.

“Desperate times call for desperate measures. It’s a sport that I love, and I’m going to continue to do it and show my greatness in it.

“I got a lot of things that I want to do in this sport. But politics play a big part in certain things happening. Management, promotion companies.

“Certain guys don’t want their fighters to fight certain guys because they plan for their guys. It’s a lot that goes on.”
