Deontay Wilder: It's Sad, I Have To Knock My Brother Out

By Miguel Rivera

Undefeated heavyweight Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder (30-0, 30KOs) is not looking forward to Saturday's fight, because he has to face a good friend in the ring - Malik Scott (36-1-1, 13KOs). They will trade punches at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon City, Puerto Rico.

A lot is on the line. The World Boxing Council has deemed the bout a semi-final eliminator. Friendship or not, Wilder has promised to score knockout number 31.

"I know Malik. He is my brother and my friend. He's a great fighter, but this is a business and now I have him in front of me. But although he is my friend, it is not my intention to compromise my impeccable brand. It's going to be a great fight with a lot of suspense and action, and I predict it will be another fight where I finish by knockout. It's sad, I have to knock my brother out. But this is boxing," Wilder told Carlos Narvaez.

If Scott loses tomorrow it will be his first legitimate loss in professional boxing. As someone else mentioned, he is really quite talented. His amateur record is 70-3.

[QUOTE=kiDynamite92;14327240]Scott will win the fight but will lose on the judges scorecard. Wilder via robbery.[/QUOTE] Scott already looks scared coming into the weigh in with a bag over his head. I think he knows he's in for some trouble.
