Deontay Wilder NOT considering retiring after Tyson Fury loss, coach Malik Scott says


Deontay Wilder coach Malik Scott has insisted his man has no plans to retire from boxing following his loss to Tyson Fury on Saturday night.

The “Gypsy King” and the “Bronze Bomber” produced a legendary battle for the ages as they were both taken down twice before Fury won by KO in round 11.

Prior to the fight, Wilder had raised the possibility that retirement “is approaching.”

In the aftermath of the war, Scott told iFL TV, “I seriously doubt it. I seriously doubt it, seriously.

“Deontay doesn’t have to fight, that’s the only reason I’m saying I’m not sure because we’re talking about an individual who doesn’t have to do this for a living.

“We’re talking about someone who is really well positioned and financially secure.

“So we’ll see, but retirement isn’t in our plans or plans at all, it’s not something we’ve discussed.”

Before the fight, Wilder told the Last Stand Podcast, “I’m an energetic person.

“I think I’ll stop this sport when I feel this energy coming closer.

“I can feel him getting closer, retiring. I can feel it. “
