Wilder lost to fury in the seventh round of their fight in Las Vegas on February 23. He was knocked down several times before his corner threw the towel in, later blaming the weight of his walk-in costume for his poor performance. He also criticised his trainer for throwing the towel in.

The American fighter had never been stopped before in his 44-fight career. Now, he is calling for a rematch in July this year.

"Hello my people, my Bomb Squad army, my Bomb Squad nation, to all my loved ones around the world, I just want to let you know I am here," he said on the Insta video.

"Your king is here. And we ain’t going nowhere, for the war has just begun. I will rise again. I am strong. I am a king, you can’t take my pride.

"I am a warrior. I am a king that will never give up. I’m a king that will fight to the death.

"And if anyone don’t understand that, don’t understand what it is to go to war, don’t understand what it is to fight, we will rise again.

"We will regain the title.

"I will be back. We will hold our heads up high. Your king is in great spirit.

"We will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title. I’ll see you in a few months, for the war has just begun. All my love to all my people."
