Deontay Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott has backed Oleksandr Usyk to beat Tyson Fury in their December 4th heavyweight showdown. ‘Deontay did all the right things, he just waited too long’.
Malik Scott, Deontay Wilder’s coach, believes that Oleksandr Usyk will beat Tyson Fury in their upcoming fight. He thinks that the Ukrainian boxer is more suited to face the “vulnerable” Englishman.
Before agreeing to a rematch with Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury was ready to face Oleksandr Usyk.
If Deontay Wilder and Oleksandr Usyk fight, Malik Scott thinks Oleksandr Usyk might defeat a “weak” Tyson Fury.
WBA (Super), WBO, and IBF champion Usyk will fight Anthony Joshua again, but if he wins, he may accept to a unification bout with WBC champion Fury later this year.
Scott believes Usyk, 34, will defeat Fury.
“This Tyson Fury is a lot more fragile and easy to strike than any other Tyson Fury,” he claimed.
Scott was brought in by Wilder to assist him prepare for his trilogy bout with Fury, and Scott feels Usyk would benefit from Fury’s shift to a more aggressive approach.
“I believe that the Tyson Fury who fought Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder the first time, the Tyson Fury who fought Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder the first time, the Tyson Fury who fought Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder the first time, the Tyson Fury who fought Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder the
“The mobility, the reflexes Tyson Fury has – I think Tyson Fury would defeat Usyk right now.”
“The bigger Tyson Fury is coming forth, and he wants to take risks and put his weight on people. I believe that is an ideal method for Usyk to work with.
“His feet are quick, he spins on angles, he’s a strong counter-puncher, and his blows are so precise that they have a little more sting than they look.”
“So, if I had to wager, I’d say Usyk would defeat Tyson Fury.”
Fight of the Year goes to Fury vs. Wilder III.
Fury’s third fight with Wilder in October earned him the coveted Ring Magazine Fight of the Year and Round of the Year awards.
Fury was knocked down twice before coming back to stop Wilder in the 11th round to defend his WBC championship and Ring magazine belt in a dramatic fight in Las Vegas that enthralled the boxing world.
Fury, 33, was knocked down twice in the fourth round before coming back to win Round of the Year for those exhilarating three minutes.
“I’d want to offer a huge thank out to Deontay Wilder,” Fury told Ring Magazineexternal-link. “I needed a dancing partner in order to win this prize.”
“It had been a long three minutes.” When you’re sparring in the gym, you don’t get knocked down like that, but then all of a sudden, you’re in a fight with three knockdowns in two rounds. It was insane!
“I’ve never been dropped twice in a single round before. Everyone else felt it was over, but I didn’t. I was always certain that I would rise to the occasion and triumph.”
AJ vs. Wilder remains a’super bout.’
In the past, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder have attempted and failed to agree on conditions for a fight.
Wilder, 36, is considering his options after suffering his first two losses in a row against Fury.
Before his two defeats, Wilder had gone 43 bouts undefeated, and Scott believes he still has a bright future in the ring if he chooses to continue.
Scott didn’t specify whether Wilder was thinking about retiring, but he did add that a rematch with two-time world champion Joshua would be a huge fight for the ‘Bronze Bomber.’
Joshua and Wilder discussed a unification bout in 2018 and again a year later while both were still undefeated, but couldn’t come to an agreement.
“All of those bouts [Joshua, Usyk, and Fury] are fantastic, amazing battles, particularly the one between him and AJ,” Scott continued.
“No matter what, that’ll always be a tremendous battle.” He and Usyk [are two more] – he has a lot of choices.
“He could become a two-time world heavyweight champion if he chose to remain.”
