Deontay Wilder’s trainer fears Anthony Joshua ‘may not make it to December’ and miss a big fight
DEONTAY WILDER’s coach fears Anthony Joshua ‘may not make it to December’ and could derail their big fight plans.
The two heavyweights are negotiating a fight that will take place later this year.
Wilder’s trainer Malik Scott is concerned the fight will not go ahead if AJ steps into the ring ahead of the Middle East big buck showdown.
He could be rumored to face Dillian Whyte in a rematch of the 2015 clash this summer.
And Scott thinks he could be beaten, which would defeat the idea of facing Wilder.
He said so betway: “That might sound bad, but I don’t care. If a C+ fighter who really believes in himself is up against Joshua, he has a very good chance of beating AJ.”
“You could be a C+ guy, but if you really believe, train hard, work hard and take advantage of AJ’s loopholes, you could beat him.”
“I’m not afraid of him fighting, but let’s just say I’m not okay with AJ having a melee.”
“I want us to take out Anthony Joshua next.
“As he looks now, he might not make it to December.

“You just can’t tell. But we’ll see, he’s with Derrick James now, one of the best coaches in the game.”
Discussions continue about Wilder’s fight with Joshua, as confirmed by Scott.
He said: “Without going into too much detail on the business aspect, everything was said, discussed, negotiated, but nothing was signed.”
“But the signing is imminent. But the negotiations are definitely going on. The steps are being taken.”
“The business aspect is definitely taken into account and most importantly Deontay Wilder is taken care of and paid very well for his services and that to me is the most important part.”
Meanwhile, Dominic Ingle, son of legendary trainer Brendan, can’t imagine AJ harming the bronze bomber.
He said Boxing King Media: “The way Wilder is, he’s ruthless when he fights – and Anthony Joshua isn’t.”
“He’s got the reach, he’s going to throw caution to the wind, he’s got the power and he’s going to get off the ground and fight.”
“I think it would be a very difficult task for Joshua to beat Wilder, very difficult. I don’t think he’s capable of that.”
