Deontay Wilder’s coach Malik Scott says the next opponent for former heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) is likely Gerald Washington (20-5-1, 13 KOs).
According to the coach, the American, who has lost five out of five lost fights ahead of schedule, is one of the top candidates who may fight Joshua.
“It’s not a rumor, it’s actually a fact that he is one of the options. And Gerald is ready. I keep telling people that Gerald is big, strong, with a heavy hand. There are physical qualities, but we are working on his mental endurance. And when fighting at the highest level, this is more important than the physical, ”Malik believes.

“I am very optimistic that the fight will take place, especially now,” said the coach, who previously surprised by naming the fighter he dreams of working with.
