Malik Scott, coach of former world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, claims his ward is in excellent condition ahead of his third fight with Tyson Fury.
“Deontay Wilder is one of the best, if not the best heavyweight in the world, based on what he does in the ring. Dates were falling apart, the other side played their games, but he was silent. During all this time, Deontay said nothing. I I’m on his team now, but it’s always like that. Even after the fight in which we failed, I have no doubt that Wilder will be the two-time world heavyweight champion.
I have never seen him in this zone, except for one training camp that I constantly brag about. This was when he was planning a fight with Povetkin. Then he was in the zone of invincibility, and now he went much further. Deontay has been silent all this time, and I believe that everything he went through after this defeat will bear fruit in July, “said Malik Scott in an interview with YouTube channel 78SPORTSTV.
Recall that Wilder was supposed to fight with Povetkin in 2016, but the fight was canceled due to a positive doping test of the Russian.
