Deontay Wilder’s trainer insists Tyson Fury is not the greatest British heavyweight of all time

Published by on October 13th, 2021.

Deontay Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott is not convinced Tyson Fury is the greatest British heavyweight of all-time.

Wilder and Fury shared a fight of the year contender on Saturday with ‘The Gypsy King’ defending his WBC heavyweight title in a thrilling trilogy fight between the two rivals.

Scott led Wilder’s training camp having replaced Mark Breland as head trainer, with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ providing a much-improved account of himself, earning widespread praise for a brave performance despite the defeat.

Fury’s win has cemented his status as perhaps the best active fighter in his division, declaring himself the ‘greatest heavyweight of my era’ following the win.

His return to the summit of the sport has also sparked debate over whether he is the greatest British heavyweight of all time.

But Wilder’s trainer Scott draws the line at that point, insisting Lennox Lewis still holds that title.

Asked if Fury is the best British heavyweight of all time in a Q&A on Instagram, Malik Scott replied: ‘Please never disrespect Lennox Lewis like that again, thank you sir.’

Lewis retired from boxing in 2003 as a three-time world heavyweight champion and the last heavyweight to hold the undisputed title.
