Deontay Wilder's trainer explains why Tyson Fury got snubbed after fight & injuries


Deontay Wilder still believes all the accusations he previously made towards Tyson Fury, according to his trainer Malik Scott, after the American refused to show any sportsmanship and respect to the Gypsy King after their fight on Saturday night.

The 35-year-old lost to his arch-rival for a second time after being knocked out in the 11th round, thus ending what was a fight that will live long in the memories of boxing fans all over the world.

Although he lost, Wilder put on a solid display, dropping Fury twice in the fourth round, but also taking some serious punishment throughout, proving he's a warrior when it comes to fighting inside the ropes.

However, his performance and courage was soon forgotten about due to his post-fight behaviour.

There was further drama after the bout as Wilder refused to shake Fury's hand and refused to show him any sign of respect for the fight they just had.

The Brit later said: "I said ‘well done, mate’ and he said ‘I don’t want to show any sportsmanship or respect'. I said ‘No problem.’ I was very surprised. Sore loser. Idiot.”

Scott shed further light on the incident when talking to EsNews, saying: "Deontay, obviously, he looks at Fury as a man he had serious issues with concerning things that he felt and certain allegations that were out and certain things that he actually saw with his own eyes.

"After they released that energy, all that tension, he still felt the way he felt. When he left the ring and I was following him out, I was going to go shake the competitor’s hand and just tell him you know, 'Good fight man'.

"And when I say the competitors I don’t just mean Tyson Fury, I mean SugarHill, who I always had a great relationship with, he’s a great trainer and I said that even in the build-up, a very good dude."

Scott also said that Wilder is doing well after being taken to hospital.

"He’s good. He’s up in his room, I took him up into his room. He’s seen the doctor afterwards, everything is cool with him. He’s got a busted lip, he broke his hand, his finger or something like that is broken. But life goes on."



One day, hopefully, both boxers will be able to respect one another and appreciate they both made each other better.

It's been one hell of a rivalry, and the trilogy fight was the perfect way to end the feud.
