He is no longer with his long-time trainer Mark Breland and has roped in Malik Scott as his guide.

From fueling the body shots to tackling movements, Scott is honing his prodigy for a titanic battle. Amid all this, Deontay Wilder flexed his rapid head movement. Although a punching machine was offering the shots, Wilder tackled all of it with ease. Given how calm he looked, it can highly benefit him in an in-ring scrap against ‘The Gypsy King’.

Tyson Fury had exposed several loopholes in Deontay Wilder’s game in the past two encounters. Following a controversial draw in 2018, Fury manhandled his American rival in the rematch and handed him his first loss of pro-career via 7 round TKO for the WBC belt.

As Wilder cannot afford to lose one more fight in a row, his defense and movements inside the ring will play a pivotal part. As there’s no doubt regarding his power, fight IQ appears to be the key to success.
