Wilder’s coach reveals why he’s crazy about Fury


Malik Scott, the coach of the former heavyweight champion American Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs), does not hide the fact that he really likes the ex-rival of the ward – WBC champion Briton Tyson Fury (33-0-1, 24 KOs) .

“I’ll tell you why I’m crazy about Fury, –
told Scott. “I’ll tell you exactly what I like about him. He fought Wilder three times. He fought Dillian Whyte. And after he beat Derek Chisora, Fury immediately began to look in the ringside for (the owner of all the other belts in the division) Oleksandr Usyk. He invited not only him into the ring, but also Joe Joyce. And he challenged him too. As for me, this is a real old school. It’s like Larry Holmes. This is a real genuine attempt to prove to the whole world that there is no one stronger than you. This is an attempt to prove something that has already been proven before.”

Scott is delighted that “Most fans and pundits already consider Fury to be the strongest current heavyweight in the world. Perhaps that is the way it is. But I give him credit for still chasing historically important fights. And he’s still trying to make the best fights possible.”

Have you decided on the favorite of the Usyk-Fury fight? David Haye’s ex-coach has already done it. Earlier, the promoter of the British said that this fight will take place a little later – not on March 4.
