Deontay Wilder’s Trainer Malik Scott Explains Why Wilder Snubbed Tyson Fury’s Attempt To Hug or Shake Him After The Fight

Deontay Wilder’s trainer, Malik Scott has explained why the Bronze Bomber snubbed Tyson Fury’s attempt to hug or shake him after the fight.

Wilder, 35, floored Fury, 33, twice in the fourth round in Las Vegas having been knocked down himself in the third round, before Fury rallied to end the fight in the 11th round.

There was a lot of animosity before the fight as Fury was angered by Wilder’s cheating allegations from their second fight in February 2020, with Wilder vowing to use gloves with thinner padding after getting angry with the horsehair used in Fury’s gloves before the fight.

Wilder also claimed his water was poisoned by his former coach, his walk-in costume was too heavy and Fury used voodoo on him.

After Fury’s victory, the Gypsy King was disappointed that Wilder was not able to put his differences aside and embrace his heavyweight rival in the ring, with the 33-year-old blasting the American’s lack of sportsmanship.

Now Scott has revealed that despite putting everything on the line in the ring, nothing has changed Wilder’s attitude towards Fury.

‘Deontay looks at Fury as a man he had serious issues with concerning allegations and things he’d seen,’ he said. ‘After they released all that energy, he still felt the way he felt.’

Wilder is yet to make any excuses himself after Saturday night’s fight and admitted that he wasn’t ‘good enough’ following his defeat by Fury.

‘I did my best, but it wasn’t good enough tonight. I’m not sure what happened,’ he said.

‘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.’

Malik Scott, also revealed that his fighter broke his hand during the eleven-round contest, and that was taken to hospital but is now recovering in a Las Vegas hotel.

‘I took him up into his room, he’s seen a doctor afterwards,’ he told ESNews after the bout.

‘Everything’s cool… he busted his lip, he broke his hand, broke his finger, knuckle, something like that. But life goes on.’

The latest claim by his team adds to a list of excuses used by the Bronze Bomber since their fight 20 months ago.
