Malik Scott: Tyson Fury-Cunningham is a 50-50 Fight

By Ryan Burton

Undefeated heavyweight contender Malik Scott (35-0-1, 12KOs) appeared on this week's edition of BoxingScene Radio and spoke to us on a variety of topics. Scott battled Vyacheslav Glazkov to a controversial draw last month in a fight that most insiders felt Scott won going away. Scott told us that from this point on he is only looking to fight meaningful fights. 

"I only want to fight top 5, top 10 guys. I need to fight guys who can help me feed my family and who can light my fire. I don't need to fight theses bums who are talking sh*t. The Jose Ribaltas of the world don't do sh*t for me. I heard Vitali Klitschko is looking for an opponent. He's never fought a boxer like me and I would go to Berlin or wherever in Germany the fight takes place. I would go there and beat him," Scott revealed. 

He also said that he understands he will likely have to go on the road to land the big fights he craves.

"If I have to go to Germany to fight somebody or Brazil to fight somebody I don't give a f***. I will go anywhere. Match my skills to any of them and I'm second to none. They may have better power or do one single thing better but overall they can't match my skill set," Scott explained.

I also asked him for his thoughts on undefeated Irish heavyweight Tyson Fury and for him to break down Fury's upcoming fight against Steve Cunningham, who is also from Philadelphia like Scott.  

"He's the real deal. Cunningham is the real deal. This is the best heavyweight fight of the year after me and Glazkov's fight. Tyson talks the talk but he walks the walk as well it's a 50-50 fight. It's a great fight. Tyson is 6'9" and has the prototypical size to be a great heavyweight. Either guy can win this fight," stated Scott.

He's not as bad as Haye, because at least Haye got a title shot. But both have too inactive. Haye vs. Scott; Haye vs. Wilder; or Wilder vs Scott?
