Malik Scott Picks Deontay Wilder to Knockout Oleksandr Usyk!

If being truthful, chief second Malik Scott already knows the next big fight that he wants for his charge, Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KO’s) in WBA Super, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk (20-0, 13 KO’s). There’s a distinct possibility the unified champion could battle WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury for undisputed status sometime in the first quarter of 2023. Yet there has already been a bit of friction with the two camps.

In fact, this is likely a huge part of the reason that Usyk expressed his own interest in dancing with The Bronze Bomber. Before they can meet though, Wilder must first get past his next professional foe, Robert Helenius. The two will meet in Brooklyn’s reliable rumble factory, the Barclay’s Center. To further demonstrate his strong interest in the one-time WBC champion, Usyk will travel to the US to attend the pay-per-view event.


Provided that Wilder does successfully hop the hurdle of Helenius, then Scott really loves his fighter’s chance of toppling Usyk. Not only that, unsurprisingly, given his perspective, Scott thinks The Bronze Bomber could stop the talented Ukrainian.

“Now concerning boxing and him fighting Deontay Wilder, […] I think Deontay is one of the only heavyweights that can beat Oleksandr Usyk; not by decision, by knockout! Because as slick as he is, he gives you the opportunity to hit him. He leaves out of fights kind of busted up a little bit, which means that you’re getting hit…that means you’re vulnerable. I’ll take the rest from there!”

Aside from the mutual respect of the fighters, Malik Scott also has his own connection to the unified champion.

“First of all, I got tons of respect for Usyk. I been saying he is one of the best fighters in the world for the last four or three years. I spent tons of time with him, tons of camps, he brought me to Ukraine. We always talked about boxing and strategize a bit on certain fights that he had. He’s a very peculiar individual with a very, very good heart.”

With all this history, open respect and high profile interaction, there does seem a good chance that Wilder does get a shot at the trio of titles. First though, as always, Wilder must initially get through his Helenius dinner before enjoying a Usyk dessert battle. Yet, no matter which fighters are left standing when the smoke clears, 3Kings Boxing will have an accurate tally of the mayhem and all the aftermath!
