Undefeated WBA interim-super featherweight champion Chris Colbert is not convinced that Deontay Wilder will become a changed fighter by hiring former opponent Malik Scott as his new head trainer.
Back in February of 2020, Tyson Fury dominated and stopped Wilder in seven rounds to capture the WBC heavyweight title.
A trilogy fight is scheduled for July 24th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
After suffering his first career defeat, Wilder fired co-trainer Mark Breland.
Earlier this year, the dangerous puncher revealed that he would be trained by Scott.
The pairing is unique, because Wilder blew away Scott in one round when they met in the ring in 2014.
Colbert believes Wilder made a mistake by hiring Scott in such an important role.
And as far as the outcome, Colbert is expecting another defining performance for Fury, with a victory inside the distance being the likely result.
"Fury is going to beat on him. He can’t f--- with Fury. How are you going to learn from somebody you knocked out? I’m trying to figure out what is he [Malik Scott] going to teach him? He [Wilder] said Malik Scott is a boxing genius," Colbert told Fighthype.com.
“Why is he looking so terrible in his fights? He don’t look good in his fights. If you’re a boxing genius, you have a mindset of what you can do. He won’t have a mindset of what you can do. He went in there with Wilder, and Wilder hit his glove, and he dropped to the ground. Tyson Fury is special. I don’t think anybody f---- with him.
"Whatever [Fury] says, he does it. You’ve got to listen to him. He told you he was going to stop Wilder. He beat his ass."
