Malik Scott, the coach of Deontay Wilder, described the preparations of his fighter for the end of the trilogy against Tyson Fury. The former WBC heavyweight champion has not played since February 2020 and has a defeat against Fury in a second head-to-head match.
Wilder made some changes to his team since then and has appointed Malik Scott (38-3-1, 13 KOs) as head coach and former boxer whom Deontay just knocked out in the first round in 2014. Wilder and Fury were supposed to finish the trilogy on July 24, but "Gypsy King" and a good part of his team became infected with the coronavirus and the fight was postponed to October 9.
After a draw in the first fight, Fury totally dominated the American boxer in the second match and defeated him by technical knockout in the seventh round. The Bronze Bomber is more determined than ever, and Malik Scott is confident that Wilder will avenge that defeat.
"First of all, I am convinced of revenge because he trains with me now. The second reason is the fact that I have never seen him so hungry, he has never been so dedicated to his job. Also, I've never seen him so eager to break up a guy on the opposite side of the ring, '' Scott told BoxingScene.com
Wilder’s coach also reacted to his fighter's possible overtraining and mental exhaustion due to all the delays that occurred.
'' I don't worry about that at all. The only thing I'm worried about is the fact that we're in this scenario with a person who has been proven mentally disturbed. I'm worried that Fury won't even show up, '' Scott added in a very aggressive approach to the English boxer.
It seems that Wilder found a coach who is very similar in character after parting ways with Mark Breland. However, all this story of him and his coach will be worth nothing if Wilder ends up as a loser in the third match as in the last performance against Tyson Fury.
It is certain that Wilder is motivated as never before, to take revenge for all that he blamed Fury. We know that Wilder has found many excuses and right now he has the opportunity to show that he is a better fighter and that he really lost last time due to some embezzlement (which we personally doubt).
Fury certainly has an additional motive for the allegations, which he believes are not regular. All this will make us watch a real spectacle!
