Malik Scott: Deontay Wilder’s Coach Backs Oleksandr Usyk To Beat ‘Vulnerable’ Tyson Fury
If Deontay Wilder and Oleksandr Usyk fight, Malik Scott believes 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 agree 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 believes Usyk would benefit from Fury’s shift to a more aggressive style.
“I believe that the Tyson Fury that fought Wladimir Klitschko and Deontay Wilder the first time, I believe that Tyson Fury gives Usyk all kinds of fits,” he told ES News.
“The movement, the reflexes Tyson Fury – I believe this Tyson Fury right now, I believe Usyk would beat.
“The heavier Tyson Fury that’s coming forwards, that wants to take chances and put his weight on people. I think that is a perfect system for Usyk to operate off of.
