Malik Scott Sees Wilder vs Joshua Ending Early and Ugly!

On August 12, two-time heavyweight champion Anthony “AJ” Joshua (25-3, 22 KO’s) will face late replacement opponent Robert Helenius. If successful, AJ will preserve his next duel with former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KO’s). Yet, Wilder’s chief second, Malik Scott, believes that Joshua would only be heading toward certain disaster.

In his opinion, as he articulated to Fight Hub TV, Scott can’t see the Wilder versus Joshua prizefight going to the late or even the middle rounds!

“It’s a three, four round fight in my opinion, him and Joshua. He knocks Joshua out in three or four rounds. My prediction has nothing to do with fanatic’s standpoint predictions. Most people are saying that because they don’t like the way that Joshua looked his last fight.

When Joshua looked his best, people would say against Wladimir Klitkschko, against Takam and those guys, to me, that best Joshua still only goes three or four rounds with Deontay Wilder. Because stylistically, the mistakes that he makes early in fights, he’ll just run right into a missile . . . it’s a three or four round fight with Deontay winning by devastating knockout, devastating!”


As stated before, AJ must first get past the challenge of Robert Helenius before worrying too much about Wilder. Given his history with late replacements, and the freshness of his working relationship with new lead trainer Derrick James, a misstep would not come as a great shock.

On the bright side however, if Joshua outpoints or stops Helenius, then we all would have a fun heavyweight prizefight on our hands. Like the recent Crawford and Spence destruction, the Wilder and Joshua beef has been building for about five years. Unlike their welterweight counterparts however, multiple losses suffered by both competitors have significantly dampened the stakes and intensity level of the fight.

Luckily, in the end, a good fight is a good fight. And a good fight between genuine rivals that earnestly dont like one another makes it that much better. So let’s see if Joshua has what it takes to get Helenius out his way or keep his potential duel with Wilder in suspended animation, forever.
