Malik Scott Has No Fear of Chisora, Confident of Victory

By Daily Star

UNBEATEN Malik Scott believes that Dereck Chisora will force him to turn on the style at Wembley next month.

The two heavyweights meet on July 20 with Scott replacing original opponent Deontay Wilder, who was recently arrested over an alleged domestic violence issue.

Now 32-year-old Scott steps in as replacement and he believes that the gritty approach of Chisora will bring out the best in him.

He said: “I’ve seen enough of Dereck to know what he’s about. I haven’t seen his fights in full but I know what he does best.

“He’s tough, gritty, he wears his heart on his sleeve and I believe his style will bring out the very best of Malik Scott. This is the highest level I’ve fought at so far and people will see what my fans see – I’m the best-skilled heavyweight on the planet.”

The Philadelphia fighter has won 35 and drawn one of his professional contests.

He said: “I know what I am capable of and I know I can defeat Dereck. I know he will be tough, but I have his measure.”

The athletic 6ft 4in boxer believes Del Boy’s aggressive style against his slick approach will make for an exciting fight. And a confident Scott also feels he will go on to challenge for a world title soon after their Wembley showdown.

He said: “Getting a world title shot is my dream and I aim to take full advantage of this clash to move in that direction.

“I’m a natural counter-puncher. My God-given talent makes me a slick, super-greasy fighter who is tough for any opponent.

“Dereck’s not going to have to look for me, and neither he nor the fans have to worry about me running all over the place.

“I’m looking forward to Dereck coming running at me like a bull.

“We have a classic brawler versus slick boxer match-up that I know the fans will love – but they won’t love seeing my arm raised in victory.”

Apart from his last fight – a controversial draw with unbeaten Ukraine fighter Vyacheslav Glazkov – Scott has won with apparent ease.

But he says he has been in some testing fights, adding: “I’ve been hit – this is boxing after all.

“But I’m always in shape, and I trust my defensive abilities, and any time I have been hit I’ve come right back.

“It doesn’t matter how I win against Dereck, just as long as I keep my undefeated record.

It depends on the shape Chisora will be in.

Chisora had two good showing against very tall opponents. Scott has speed and skills. I see Scott winning a decision
