Coach Malik Scott stands his ground. He claims that his ward former WBC heavyweight champion American Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs) will knock out any opponent if he acts with focus and discipline.
words Scott, in this case, it is better for the fans not to miss the knockout – it will certainly come in the starting rounds: “I am constantly asked about the confrontation between Deontay and Anthony Joshua. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again. This is a 3 round fight. More AJ not survive. If Deontay is collected, focused and disciplined, then this is a 3 three-minute deal. It doesn’t matter who is in front of you. Ruiz, AJ or someone else. Trust that against a disciplined Wilder, no one can last more than 3 rounds.”
Scott hopes that sooner or later Joshua will give the go-ahead for this fight – “and we are ready to fight even tomorrow.”
He previously stated: “We have two options – not just Andy Ruiz.” Meanwhile, Joshua’s plans for 2023 have been revealed: three fights and a megafight with Wilder.
