Deontay Wilder's Coach Responds To A Fan Calling Anthony Joshua A 'Bum'

Deontay Wilder's coach has jumped to the defence of Anthony Joshua after a troll called him a 'bum' following his crushing defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.


Joshua succumbed to the superior boxing skills of Usyk, who dethroned the Brit to become the new unified world heavyweight champion.

Despite 'AJ' losing his second bout of his professional career, his rivals have NOT proverbially stuck the knife in him.

In fact, Wilder's trainer Malik Scott called out a fan who labelled the two-time world heavyweight champion a 'bum' on social media.

Scott replied: "At least he's a history making bum and now you're a piece of sh*t that just got blocked."

Wilder is now under the coaching tutelage of Scott, who has overseen his camp ahead of the fighter's clash with Tyson Fury next month.

And plans of a potential showdown with Joshua will have to wait following his defeat to Usyk.

Speaking after his defeat in Tottenham, the 31-year-old said: "It was a good chess match.

"I'm just learning and studying this game, it was a great lesson.

"I'm not a sulker, this is a blessed opportunity to fight for the heavyweight championship of the world. It's a long process.

"I'm not going to go home and cry about it. Sulking is a waste of time It's all about experiences, you have to trust the process."

He added: "We always tend to look at things from a negative point of view, I am keeping a positive head on.

"I feel I had a good foothold in the fight and I am going to build on it. I just want to get back to the gym and improve.

"I've got to take it as a great lesson. If this was the end of the story, I'd be more emotional. But I believe in the process."

A rematch between Usyk and Joshua is being discussed for February or March.
