Malik Scott sat down in an interview with ES News to provide the injury update on Deontay Wilder
The wild fight saw umpteen knockdowns before coming to a halt in the eleventh round.
It was ‘The Gypsy King’ Tyson Fury once again who took the W.
The contest was even until the 8th round. In fact, the scorecards had both the boxers at 65-65 after round 7.
Wilder slowly began gassing out after round 8, and Fury began piecing him up. In the 9th and 10th rounds, Fury began battering Wilder. But, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ held on, hoping to unleash his ever-present dagger – right hand.
He couldn’t make it past round 11, and was knocked out cold by Fury.
Following the absolute slugfest, Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott, who did a phenomenal job in the corner, gave an injury update.
Speaking in an interview with ES News, Scott revealed Wilder had suffered a broken hand, broken finger and a busted lip.
Here is a Tweet from Michael Benson, on the same:
Deontay Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott asked how Wilder is after the Tyson Fury KO: “He’s good, I took him up into his room. We saw the doctor afterwards, everything was cool. He’s got a busted lip, he broke his hand, broke his finger or knuckle. But life goes on.”
What next for Deontay Wilder?
Now that Deontay Wilder will probably not get a chance to challenge Tyson Fury again, what is next for ‘The Bronze Bomber?’
A fight against Anthony Joshua makes absolute sense. The fight featuring two explosive heavyweights would be a treat to watch.
But, Joshua right now, is expected to face Oleksandr Usyk in a rematch soon.
