It is unclear when Wilder broke his hand on Saturday night, where he also suffered damage to both his finger and knuckle, but he was taken to the hospital straight after the fight for scans on his head and hands.

“Deontay broke his right hand behind the third knuckle and he has to have that fixed next week,” Shelly Finkel, Wilder’s co-manager, said when speaking to The Sun. “He has to have surgery, the knuckle is OK, it’s the bone behind the knuckle that broke. He’s sore but he was OK, he was home yesterday.”

Finkel said he is currently “healing and at this point, if everything is OK, after the hand surgery he’ll probably look to enter the ring mid next year, like April or May.”

The American heavyweight is now 42-2-1, while Fury is 31-0-1 after the victory.

Fury is reported to have also been given a 45-day suspension due to the ruthless nature of the fight.
