A few days ago Deontay Wilder went head to head against Tyson Fury in an intense trilogy bout in Las Vegas. Both The Gypsy King and The Bronze Bomber engaged in a battle that will be remembered for the ages. Although the WBC champion had the last laugh as he knocked out Wilder in the 11th round to successfully defend his heavyweight title.
After this fight, fans, analysts and numerous people from the fighting community appreciated the quality of this exciting trilogy fight. Similarly a few hours ago Mike Tyson also posted a tweet regarding this fight where he praised both Deontay Wilder and his trainer Malik Scott. He gave a lot of credit to Wilder’s trainer for improving and sharpening his boxing skills.
“Wilder’s coach Malik Scott won the night with great coaching. When you are an amateur you have a coach, they nurture you, guide you and are with you every step of the way. Once you turn pro you get a trainer.
A trainer is in your life as long as the checks are coming…”

Comment below your thoughts about Wilder’s performance against Fury in the trilogy fight.
What’s next for Deontay Wilder?
Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott put all rumours regarding The Bronze Bomber’s retirement to rest in an interview yesterday. So the question that comes up is what’s next for Deontay Wilder? With Joshua and Usyk fighting in a rematch next year and Dillian Whyte scheduled to face Otto Wallin in October. The only fight that would make sense for the former champion is against Andy Ruiz.
This fight would excite a lot of fans as this is an interesting matchup. But fans will have to wait for a while as Wilder has suffered a lot of injuries during his fight against Fury.
