Despite showcasing agility, Deontay Wilder has failed to achieve believers on his side ahead of the trilogy against Tyson Fury on July 24. Although Wilder’s knockout power is well-known, not everyone sees him beating Tyson Fury, especially Chris Colbert.

The unbeaten WBA Interim super-featherweight champion doesn’t believe that Malik Scott can bring a different outcome from Deontay Wilder’s end. Although Wilder may not bother about these critics, Colbert validated how Scott’s loss to Wilder doesn’t justify him as the trainer to ‘The Bronze Bomber.

Speaking with Boxing Scene, Chris Colbert said, “Fury is going to beat on him. He can’t f— with Fury. How are you going to learn from somebody you knocked out? I’m trying to figure out what is he [Malik Scott] going to teach him? He [Wilder] said Malik Scott is a boxing genius.

“Why is he looking so terrible in his fights? He don’t look good in his fights. If you’re a boxing genius, you have a mindset of what you can do. He won’t have a mindset of what you can do. He went in there with Wilder, and Wilder hit his glove, and he dropped to the ground.”

Meanwhile, Malik Scott seems to have complete faith in his fighter. Apart from that, Wilder has also ended his brief silence in fashion.

He is no longer in a shell and seems ready to avenge the sole loss of his career against Tyson Fury. That said, he has all the tools to land the upset. However, looking at the lopsided rematch, it’s hard to picture Wilder beating Tyson Fury inside the boxing ring.
