After Tyson Fury’s knockout, Deontay Wilder’s trainer teases the fighter’s next move.
Malik Scott, Deontay Wilder’s trainer, has recommended the Bronze Bomber’s next move following his 11th round loss to Tyson Fury in Las Vegas on Saturday.
After his loss to Tyson Fury on Saturday night, Deontay Wilder’s trainer has stated that the Bronze Bomber would not retire. At the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Fury overcame Wilder to retain his WBC belt.
The highly anticipated third battle between the two lived up to the hype and will go down in history as one of the greatest heavyweight contests of all time.
Fury was in command early on, especially after knocking Wilder out in round three.
Wilder, who reportedly injured his hand in the loss, came back strong in round four, knocking Fury to the canvas twice and critically striking the Brit as he struggled to rise.
The Gypsy King, on the other hand, rose to his feet and responded admirably in the later rounds to seize control of the fight.
Fury’s dominance assured that it was his fight to lose, and when Wilder recovered from a 10th-round knockdown, Fury landed the knockout punch in the 11th round.
The WBC has ordered Fury to fight the winner of the upcoming fight between mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte and Otto Wallin.
While Fury’s future is somewhat certain, Wilder’s is significantly less so.
Rumors began to circulate that the 35-year-old was considering retiring, but Wilder’s trainer, Malik Scott, promptly debunked such speculation.
“Deontay has financially secured his family, so he doesn’t have to fight for a living,” Scott told iFL TV.
“However, he has no plans to retire, and we haven’t addressed it.”
Following his second consecutive loss – and second setback of his career – against Fury, rumors of Wilder’s probable retirement began to circulate.
Between 2015 and 2020, the Bronze Bomber was the world champion, winning 42 of 45 fights, including 41 knockouts.
Before applauding Fury, Scott revealed that he expects Wilder to return to action soon, especially with rumors that a fight with Anthony Joshua might happen shortly.
“He’ll come back in any shape he wants,” Scott continued.
“He’s a big-time fighter who doesn’t belong down with the other guys; he belongs in main events and high-level battles.”
“Brinkwire Summary News” said, “Deontay Wilder was fantastic on.”
