Deontay Wilder-Malik Scott in Play For March 15

By Edward Chaykovsky

Negotiations are ongoing to finalize a heavyweight battle between Deontay Wilder (30-0, 30KOs) and Malik Scott (35-1-1, 12KOs), according to Wilder's manager Jay Deas. Deas told Wilder's hometown paper, the Tuscaloo News, that Wilder-Scott is being targeted for March 15th - which is likely the undercard to Danny Garcia's planned defense of the WBC/WBA junior welterweight titles.

“I can tell you it's a fight that we hope gets made, its a great fight for both guys and I think great for the fans,” Deas said. “I'm hopeful it will (happen) “Malik Scott has a tremendous record and for heavyweight standards he's young, he's tall, he's athletic, he's fast and if that were to work out, that would be a really good challenge."
