“He has been knocked down by guys who hit less hard than Deontay, he is very vulnerable. This Deontay would knock out the old Deontay in two rounds. He is 10 times more focused, training 100 times harder. It is a violent camp. His mentality is very violent. This will be the best version of Deontay Wilder that you have ever seen.” Scott said.

Tyson Fury claimed that he gave away his game plan last fight because he knew Wilder wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. ‘The Gypsy King’ plans to do the same this time and says he will run him over like he’s an 18-wheeler. Fury also stated that Wilder will not go past the 7th round.
