Wilder Defends Scott: He Wouldn't Fake It and Go Down

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

Heavyweight banger Deontay Wilder (31-0, 31KOs) defended his good friend, Malik Scott, who Wilder knocked out in the first round on Saturday night in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. Wilder said he landed very hard with a left hand on Scott's temple, and then followed it up and a right that was partially blocked. Scott went down and couldn't regain his senses to make it up before the referee reached the count of ten.

The crowd wasn't happy with the rapid ending and there were immediately questions posed on Scott, regarding whether or not he intentionally stayed down on the mat.

"Malik Scott is not going to fake no shot. He ain't getting that much money in the world to just fake and go down and put an L on his record. He is seeking the same goal that I'm seeking, to be heavyweight champion of the world. I've known Malik for a long time and he's not the type of guy to take a fall. He had to have been seriously hurt and he can tell you himself. It's boxing and things happen like that. Sometimes you do the unexplained in the ring and you can't explain it really. I can sit here and talk about how much power I have in both hands and getting hit to the temple and stuff like that, but the average fan don't want to hear that or grasp on to that, unless they get in the ring and I strap on ten ounce gloves and punch them in the face," Wilder said.

For a guy to throw away a career changing fight like that (which it would have been for Scott) is asinine. You guys need to chill.
