    Deontay Wilder will NOT retire after his trilogy defeat to Tyson Fury, his trainer Malik Scott has revealed.

    Speculation has been rife that the Bronze Bomber could pack it in after his second consecutive defeat to the Gypsy King.

    But such a course of action is not even on the American's radar, cornerman Scott has revealed.

    Speaking to iFL TV, he said: "Deontay has set his family financially secure so he doesn't have to fight to make a living.

    "But retiring is not in his plans at all and not something we've discussed."

    David Haye has volunteered himself to be Tyson Fury's next opponent in the ring.

    The Brit retired in 2018 but would happily return to fight Fury – a man he regrets not facing while he was still an active boxer.

    He told iFL TV: "I'm just saying, there's gonna be a time where they're gonna need an opponent.

    "And ideally you want an opponent that makes the most money. So FYI, the Hayemaker's in the gym."

    Deontay Wilder 'tarnished' his heroic effort against Tyson Fury by refusing to show respect after their epic trilogy fight.

    Fury went over to the American moments after his sensational 11th-round KO victory to give him props for his Herculean effort.

    But a dejected Wilder refused to give it up to the WBC champ, much to the annoyance of the 6ft 9in Gypsy King's dad, John.

    During an appearance on talkSPORT, he said “His behaviour, Wilder, before and after – it would make anybody’s blood boil, wouldn’t it?

    “As a man like I am – if you get beat by the better man you say, ‘Put our differences to one side, well done.’

    “For my money, he tarnished his performance, Wilder.

    “It was a great performance, not knocking it, he fought his heart out, he fought like a warrior.

    “But his behaviour at the end just let him down totally."

    David Haye admits Tyson Fury proved him wrong by defeating Deontay Wilder for a second time.

    The Brit suggests the manner of the victory shows Fury is the best heavyweight in the world.

    Haye had predicted Fury would lose his third bout with Wilder – suggesting the American would be fitter and more dangerous with his right hand.

    Haye told iFL TV: "I definitely got it wrong. He took Wilder's best – the heaviest single punching heavyweight probably ever.

    "That same shot has knocked out 41 people in the past. That performance shows he's number one."

    Dillian Whyte hopes the WBC will enforce Tyson Fury to fight him since he is the current mandatory.

    And the heavyweight boxer thinks the fight would be good for the country – delivering the all British heavyweight fight in place of Anthony Joshua, who is busy trying to regain his titles from Oleksandr Usyk.

    Whyte told Sky Sports:"Hopefully the WBC force the position and he'll have no choice but to fight me.

    "It's a massive British fight, it's a major fight for Britain. Two British fighters fighting for the heavyweight world championship, that'd be great."

    Carl Froch believes WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury could RETIRE after his emphatic win over Deontay Wilder.

    Fury held on to his world title and kept his unbeaten record in professional boxing intact on Saturday, knocking Wilder out in round 11.

    And now the 33-year-old has put his rivalry with Wilder to bed, Froch believes Fury could retire as there's 'nothing left for him to do'.

    Froch said in his Sky Sports Column: "There is nothing left for him to do. I wouldn't be surprised if he retired.

    "Depending upon how much he loves the sport, and how much he wants to go in there and do it all again, I wouldn't be surprised if Fury says: 'I have done my bit and now I am finished'."

    John Fury is one man who opposes Eddie Hearn's suggestion of Tyson Fury taking on Dillian Whyte next.

    Fury senior believes his son would not be motivated to take on the Brit as he is big enough.

    He admits he has told Tyson to take on Oleksandr Usyk or nobody – but given the Ukrainian has a rematch against Anthony Joshua first it seems Fury is in need of a different opponent to keep ring-sharp.

    Fury told talkSPORT: "He's got to go for Usyk or nothing in my idea. It's Usyk next or nothing.

    "I wouldn't bother with the rest of them, they're not in Tyson's class.

    "Would Dillian Whyte deal with Deontay Wilder? No. So why would you want to put him in with my son and get him knocked out?

    "At the end of the day, he just got knocked out by a 42-year-old man (Alexander Povetkin) via a slap by the back of his hand.

    "Tyson can't get up for them kind of fights. He wouldn't raise his game for that fight as he's not big enough. And then he goes in there with a lacklustre attitude and you don't see the best of Tyson.

    "You only see the best of Tyson when he's against the best. A challenge like he had (against Wilder) and it was a great fight. For me, I told him: Usyk or don't bother."

    Eddie Hearn believes Boxing fans should be calling on Tyson Fury to return to Britain to fight Dillian Whyte next.

    Whyte, a Matchroom fighter, will is the WBC's mandatory to take on Fury next.

    First he must overcome a tricky opponent in Otto Wallin but should Whyte defeat the Swede, he will have a shot at a world title bout.

    And Hearn believes a Fury vs Whyte fight would be huge, telling IFL TV:"As fans, we should be calling for Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte. Imagine the build-up, imagine the fight.

    "It does well over a million PPV buys, sells out a stadium. That is the fight. The winner fights the winner of Oleksandr Usyk vs Anthony Joshua II"

    Deontay Wilder's head coach has hailed an 'incredible' Tyson Fury following his victory in the pair's trilogy fight.

    The Wythenshawe warrior closed the book on his rivalry with the American with a sensational 11th-round knockout in Las Vegas last weekend.

    WBC champ Fury picked himself off the canvas twice in the fourth round on his way to registering his first-ever title defence.

    Tyson Fury wants to defend his world heavyweight title at Old Trafford… and KO Cristiano Ronaldo as Manchester’s No 1 attraction.

    And the Gypsy King has told the Red Devils' footballing superstar: “This town ain’t big enough for the both of us!”

    WBC champ and Red Devils fan Fury recently knocked out Deontay Wilder in their Las Vegas trilogy fight.

    But the Manchester-born fighter spoke beforehand about featuring in a world title bout at United’s 76,000-seater stadium for the first time since the famous Chris Eubank-Nigel Benn draw in front of 42,000 there 28 years ago.

    Speaking from his Las Vegas fight camp, Fury, 33, told SunSport: “I have two fights left out here but I’d love to bring a world title fight back to Manchester.

    “It has always been a dream of mine to fight at Old Trafford. The last fight there was Eubank versus Benn in 1993 and that was massive.

    “I’m really happy Ronaldo’s back at Old Trafford – but this town ain’t big enough for the both of us!

    “If I lived in Manchester it would be a problem. But I’m an hour up the motorway in Morecambe so he’s got plenty of distance.”

    David Haye believes Deontay Wilder was not 'coherent enough' to shake Tyson Fury's hand after his 'SOUL' was taken in their trilogy.

    Haye, 40, told iFL TV: “You don’t know where Wilder’s head is at. There’s so much ego, so much at stake for him. His whole life was at stake.

    “Tyson Fury has literally taken his soul. And now also Tyson Fury wants a handshake.

    “I’m sure in his mind; he’s like ‘I'm not giving you anything else, you’ve taken everything; you’ve ruined me.’

    "Maybe he said, ‘I can’t even give you my hand.’ And also, he’s taken a lot of punches to the head.

    "You’re not going to be coherent enough to maybe shaking somebody’s hand, it's complicate.

    “You don’t know where someone is at emotionally. He might have had a breakdown if he shook his hand.

    “Maybe the realisation of ‘This man is better than me. Maybe he just doesn't ever want it to go to that point, I dunno.

    “It would have been nice for him to shake hands and embrace him and say, ‘Yeah, you’re the better man. You beat me tonight; you beat me last time out. Good luck in the future'. But everyone's different."

    TYSON FURY will have 'too much mass' for Oleksandr Usyk and should 'ride off into the sunset' if he becomes undisputed champion.

    That is the view of American boxing legend and now pundit Andre Ward, who was ringside for Fury's epic trilogy win over Deontay Wilder.

    After the Gypsy King retained his WBC title, a unification with newly crowned WBA, IBF and WBO champ Usyk has been touted.

    But Ward, who won belts at super-middleweight and light-heavy, insisted 19st 11lb Fury will be too big for Usyk, who was 14st 4lb for much of his career.

    He told Behind The Gloves: "He’s not going to beat Tyson Fury. Tyson Fury is just not some big lumbering guy. He’s skillful; he can fight.

    "It’s just too much mass, I think, but Anthony Joshua has to fight Usyk in a rematch."

    Andy Ruiz Jr has warned Tyson Fury his WBC belt is the one he is waiting for to complete the heavyweight collection.

    Ruiz earned the WBA, IBF and WBO titles in June 2019 after he stunned Anthony Joshua and knocked him out in New York.

    But only six months later, following a period of partying and not training, the outsider lost them back to Joshua after being outboxed for 12 rounds.

    Ruiz has since linked up with Canelo Alvarez's esteemed coach Eddy Reynoso and bounced back with a win in May.

    And he was ringside to watch Fury's gruelling trilogy win over Deontay Wilder, and fancies a crack at the WBC belt, which has Mexican roots like himself.

    Ruiz, 32, told BT Sport: "So that's exactly why we came over here, I'm just waiting until everybody eliminates each other.

    "And here I come, baby. That's exactly the belt I'm waiting for, you know. I got all the belts except the WBC so that's exactly what I'm praying for."

    CHEAT 16?

    A number of fans have claimed Tyson Fury’s stunning victory over Deontay Wilder was fixed.

    The Gypsy King defeated the Bronze Bomber in the 11th round in the most exciting heavyweight battle for years.

    The rollercoaster battle saw Wilder get knocked down in the third round of their trilogy bout at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena.

    But he responded by sending Fury to the deck twice in the fourth – only for the champ to clamber back to his feet before the ten-count.

    Two huge shots from Wilder sent his opponent to the floor in quick succession but Fury was upright by the count of eight.

    However, UFC legend Daniel Cormier claimed that referee Russell Mora’s count was ‘crazy slow’.

    And several more people took to social media to claim that the fight had been fixed.

    One tweeted: “Tyson Slow Count Fury. Fixed fight.”

    Another wrote: “The ref didn’t even count the second knockdown! He got to 6!!!!!!! Boxing is fixed.”

    While a staunch fan of the defeated American said: “@BronzeBomber really wasnt going up against just @Tyson_Fury, he dead a** just fought the WHOLE BOXING COMMISSION!! He fought fury AGAIN with TAMPERED GLOVES and a REFEREE THAT LITERALLY GAVE FURY 16 SECONDS TO GET OFF THE CANVAS! SMH KEEP UR HEAD UP WILDER! U A WARRIOR!!!”

    When Tyson Fury beat Deontay Wilder in their trilogy, he drew 'First Blood'.

    But when he was a 10-year-old schoolboy at Styal Primary School, the Gypsy King dressed up as Sylvester Stallone's famous character, John Rambo for World Book Day.

    The people's champion, who brutally knocked out Wilder in round 11, attended the school in Cheshire till the age of 11 from 1993.

    And the 33 year old is remembered fondly by a former teacher, who called him "kind and caring" during his time there.

    Tyson Fury's undefeated record almost ended when he was just 22 after he was knocked down by an unknown Canadian.

    The Gypsy King has been handed numerous tough tests along the way, including in his epic trilogy win over Deontay Wilder.

    One of the most notable came in 2011 when Fury took on little-known Neven Pajkic for the Commonwealth heavyweight title.

    Fury had brushed aside 16 opponents as a professional before his bout with Pajkic but was given a real wake-up call in Manchester in front of his own fans.

    The now 44-year-old is known as the first man to knock Fury down to the canvas when he caught him with a right hook in the second round.

    Tyson Fury has been told to have a long break by Richie Woodhall, who fears he may only be motivated by Anthony Joshua beating Oleksandr Usyk.

    Fury retained his WBC title after 11 gruelling rounds with Deontay Wilder, which ended with a brutal knockout.

    He is now set to face the winner between Dillian Whyte and Otto Wallin, who will become WBC mandatory after their October 30 fight.

    But former world champion Woodhall thinks Joshua, who lost to Usyk in September but is set for a rematch, is still Fury's true target.

    He told told BBC 5 Live: "My concerns are not only for Wilder but for Tyson as well.

    "The only thing that beats Tyson, for me, is himself in terms of complacency. Lennox Lewis got complacent twice and got beaten twice.

    "Complacency can creep into any boxer, so I’m a little bit worried there about what’s going to motivate him now to come back.

    "Maybe an AJ fight, if he can beat Usyk, that would sell and motivate Tyson Fury.

    "They’re talking about Dillian Whyte, but Tyson needs a good long break now."

    UFC superstar Nate Diaz admits he's eager to box before he retires from fighting.

    Fan favourite Diaz, as well as his older brother Nick, are long-time training partners of boxing great Andre Ward and are considered by many to have some of the best hands in MMA.

    And testing himself inside the ring is something the Ultimate Fighter season five winner wants to tick off his bucket list before his story is all said and done.

    The Stockton slugger told BT Sport: "I've always been wanting to box. I've just been stuck in a cage."

    Diaz, 36, was ringside for Tyson Fury's epic trilogy fight with Deontay Wilder last weekend – which the Gypsy King won via a stunning 11th-round knockout.

    The future UFC Hall-of-Famer said of the bout: "I thought it was a good fight, an entertaining fight. I'm glad I came, it was cool to watch."

    The former lightweight title challenger was left impressed by the immense heart Fury showed to get up from two brutal knockdowns.

    He said: "It was good. I saw it slowly coming, but it was good because they had a little back-and-forth in the beginning. So it's cool."

    Tyson Fury took his well earned celebrations to a pool party where he showed off his scars of war with Deontay Wilder.

    The Gypsy King brilliantly beat American Wilder once more after 11 thrilling rounds in Las Vegas.

    Heavyweight hero Fury partied until 3am in Sin City and was raving on stage with DJ Steve Aoki.

    After a private recuperating lunch with wife and mother-of-six Paris, the WBC king arrived at the Wet Republic pool party around 3PM Vegas time.

    Wet Republic is a massive pool party complex next to the MGM Grand with DJs and hot tubs, which hosted a party attended by Prince Harry in 2012.

    It was the same place Fury partied at after beating Tom Schwarz in 2019, the day after he made his Vegas debut.

    Deontay Wilder refused to show Tyson Fury respect in the ring as he still alleges his rival tried to cheat against him.

    That was revealed by Wilder's trainer Malik Scott, who watched his man bravely take the Gypsy King 11 rounds before being brutally knocked out.

    But afterwards, the American heavyweight chose to snub Fury's attempt to make peace and shake hands.

    Scott said Wilder still holds ill-will towards the British WBC champion, after accusing him of cheating in their rematch.

    The trainer told EsNews: "Deontay, he obviously looks at Fury as a man he had serious issues with concerning some certain allegations that was out.

    "And certain things that he has actually seen with his own eyes. Tonight, after they released all that energy, he still felt the way he felt."

    Britain’s WBC heavyweight king wowed the boxing world by TWICE climbing off the canvas to dish out a thrilling 11th-round KO of Deontay Wilder.
