Malik Scottcoach of former world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (43-2-1, 42 KOs), spoke about how things are going with the organization of the fight against Andy Ruiz (35-2, 22 KOs).
“Negotiations are underway, there is always a dialogue with Deontay. He is not just one of the biggest stars in boxing. Naturally, I can’t go into too much detail, but I will say that we had discussions.
At the moment we have many options. As I said, Andy is one of them, but there are others. However, I think that their duel will take place this year. I don’t mind telling you about it. And what will happen next – no one knows. Let’s see what happens. It all depends on Deontay. We’ll figure it out when the time is right,” Scott said.
