Malik Scott receives high praise from Mike Tyson. Following their fight on Saturday night, many celebrities and former boxers came out in support of the two heavyweights. While many credited Deontay Wilder for showing heart inside the ring and not giving up, others credited Tyson Fury for his outstanding boxing display.
Deontay Wilder’s new coach and former boxer Malik Scott, however, got praises from one of the greatest heavyweights of all time. Mike Tyson took to his Twitter to praise Malik Scott.
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…

Deontay ‘The Bronze Bomber’ Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott gave an honest review of Saturday’s fight and said he had a newfound respect for Tyson Fury.“I always said in this whole build-up – I never s***ed on his skills or the kind of fighter he was,” Scott insisted.
This angle of Tyson Fury’s stunning 11th round knockout of Deontay Wilder is a thing of beauty.

“I’ve always said he’s not ‘good,’ he’s very, very good and damn near ‘great’. Well, after tonight I’m gonna consider him a ‘great’ fighter. Much respect to him, much respect to Sugar Hill… After the last knockdown, the referee waved it off, I had no problem with it. Deontay fought his heart out. He was great, Fury was greater tonight. The best man won. The heavyweight division is on fire.”
What’s next for Deontay Wilder?
It’s back to the drawing board for Deontay Wilder now. Following his loss to ‘The Gypsy King’, Wilder will undergo surgery for a fractured hand. After recovering from the injury, a doctor will have to clear him in order for him to step into the ring again.
