DEONTAY WILDER’s head coach has hailed ‘incredible’ Tyson Fury following his trilogy fight victory.
The Wythenshawe warrior closed the book on his rivalry with the American with a sensational 11th-round knockout in Las Vegas at the weekend.
WBC champ Fury picked himself off the canvas twice in the fourth round on his way to registering his first-ever title defence.
And coach Malik Scott was blown away by the heart and skill the Brit showed in the epic Sin City showdown.
He wrote on Instagram: “Tyson, incredible fighter you are.
“You have a very uncanny way of bringing out the best in people and I really embraced this mission with open arms knowing we was [sic]going up against one of the best heavyweights of ANY era and with my man @kronksugarhill being your head trainer made the task even more intriguing.
“Last night we was great but you guys was greater. Congratulations on a victory well earned. ‘Boxing Wins Again.'”
Scott preceeded that praise of Fury by hailing his fallen ‘brother’ Wilder.

He wrote: “@bronzebomber Ah brother you already know I will walk with you through any storm and stand by your side regardless of any circumstances and our bond is forever unbreakable.
“What you and fury did last night was unbelievable and the heart you two showed was astounding, love you brother.”
Wilder, 35, suffered a broken hand in his ill-fated bid to reclaim the WBC throne.
Scott told ES News: “We saw the doctor afterwards, everything was cool.
“He’s got a busted lip, he broke his hand, broke his finger or knuckle, something like that is broke. But life goes on.
Tyson, incredible fighter you are
“I don’t really want Deontay talking about boxing, doing nothing with boxing for quite some time.
“I want to get him some good rest, especially after this.
“Because even after the last fight, he was so worked up, so worked up over time, in training, arbitration … he really never got to rest.
“He deserved a good rest. We’re going to make sure he gets it now.”
Unlike after his first loss to Fury last February, Olympic bronze medallist Wilder gave the Gypsy King his props after the fight.
He said: “I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight. I’m not sure what happened.
“I know that in training he did certain things, and I also knew that he didn’t come in at 277 pounds to be a ballet dancer.
“He came to lean on me, try to rough me up and he succeeded.”
