Deontay Wilder Opens Up on His Relationship With Malik Scott

Published 09/15/2021, 12:00 PM EDT


A year ago, Deontay Wilder made the news headlines when he cut ties with his long-time trainer, Mark Breland. Breland was the one who threw in the title during Wilder’s rematch with Tyson Fury in February 2020 to save him (Wilder) from further damage. However, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ didn’t like this at all, as he wanted to continue further.

After that, his bond with Breland kept deteriorating and the duo finally split, leaving everyone in awe. Wilder then joined hands with Malik Scott, choosing the latter as his new trainer.

Over the past few months, Wilder and Scott have been prominent faces in the media as the duo released several workout videos together. Scott is always seen working extensively with ‘The Bronze Bomber’ and the pair seem to be doing great.

Recently, Wilder was in an exclusive conversation with The PBC Podcast. Here he said, “It ain’t so much of what Malik has taught me, it just so much of what I’ve already known that he’s brought out of me. You know what I’m saying? Because a lot of people, when they see me, they gonna be like, ‘Oh, Malik taught him this and that’.

“And Malik will tell you his self. He like, ‘It ain’t nothing I taught bro. It’s just what I’ve been able to bring out of him,’ that my previous trainers couldn’t do.” (h/t Boxing Scene)

Wilder and Scott have put in some tremendous work together and they’ll look to get the win on October 9 against Tyson Fury.
