Meanwhile, a former heavyweight contender Scott, a former heavyweight contender, reports that, apart from the hand injury, which may require surgery, Wilder is doing well. However, he wants his pupil to take his mind off of boxing for a while.

Scott told ES News via Independent:

“Life goes on. Fury, I assume, will get the [Oleksandr] Usyk shot which would be good.
“I really don’t want Deontay talking about boxing or doing nothing to do with boxing for quite some time; I want him to get some rest after this.
“Even after the last fight, he was so worked up he never really got to rest. He deserves a good rest, and we’ll make sure he gets it. I’m going to head down to Tuscaloosa in a few days to spend some time with him.”

Wilder accuses Fury of cheating

Meanwhile, earlier reported that just before their heavyweight bout over the weekend, Deontay Wilder reportedly ordered for a rip up of Tyson Fury's boxing gloves as he alleged the Briton was cheating.

Fury defeated Wilder to retain his WBC World Heavyweight title, but there was drama just before the epic fight as the Bronze Bomber alleged that his opponent was cheating.

According to Wilder, Fury had horse hair in his gloves, reducing the padding to consequently hit a harder punch and he asked officials to cut it open.
