Former WBC heavyweight champion and self-destructive cosplay fanatic Deontay Wilder has declared Malik Scott his new coach.

His three losses all got here in title fights of 1 grade or one other, with KO losses to Derek Chisora in 2013 and in opposition to Deontay Wilder himself in 2014 in a struggle that lasted simply 96 seconds.
Scott ended his profession with a unanimous choice loss to Luis Ortiz in 2016. Unhealthy Left Hook recapped that one unfavorably: “Terrible struggle. Late contender for Worst Struggle of the 12 months, and Scott could have run away with Worst Efficiency. Brutal.”
