Deontay Wilder Left With Broken Hand During Fight With Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder’s trainer, Malik Scott has alleged that the boxer broke his hand during his enthralling trilogy bout with Tyson Fury.

The American was knocked down on three circumstances in a fight of the year contender. The bout was waved off immediately by referee Russell Mora after Wilder was heavily floored for a third and final time in the 11th round.

Wilder suffered his second straight defeat to the Brit, who maintained his WBC strap with the victory, and the American underwent medical tests in hospital.

In a hotel room interview with ESNews following the fight, Scott while discussing the fight and what was next for Wilder, disclosed that he broke his hand during the fight.

We saw the doctor afterward, everything was cool,” Scott said (via Boxing Scene). “He’s got a busted lip, he broke his hand, broke his finger or knuckle. But life goes on.

I’ve always said [Fury’s] not good … he’s very good and damn-near great,” Scott continued. “After tonight I’m gonna consider him a great fighter. Much respect … [Wilder] was great, Fury was greater. The best man won. We almost beat him. This was a hell of an experience.”

As far as what’s next for Wilder, Scott said: “Deontay is talking about doing nothing with boxing for quite some time. I want to get him some good rest, especially after this fight because even after the last fight, he was so worked up over time, he really never got to rest. He deserved a good rest. I’m going to make sure he gets it now.
