The two rivals will trade punches for a third time on October 9th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
They were scheduled to fight back in July, with the contest being pushed back due to Fury contracting COVID-19.
Back in February of 2020, Fury dominated and stopped Wilder in seven rounds to capture the WBC title.
Wilder would then exercise an immediate rematch clause, but the COVID-19 pandemic, and a legal battle, delayed their fight until 2021.
Scott, who Wilder hired as a head trainer earlier this year, has noticed flaws in Fury's style.
This time around, he believes Wilder will put Fury away in five rounds.
"Fury fights with his hands down, at times with his chin up, at times he comes forwards, at times he is close with his hands down. He has been knocked down by guys who hit less hard than Deontay. He is very vulnerable. I've never seen Fury fight and say: 'Wow he is unbeatable'. On his best day he looks good but still looks beatable," Scott told Sky Sports.
"This Deontay would knock out the old Deontay in two rounds. He is 10 times more focused, training 100 times harder. It is a violent camp. His mentality is very violent. This will be the best version of Deontay Wilder that you have ever seen. They underestimate his IQ. He is not some big, dumb guy who just throws a right hand.
"There is method to his madness. Deontay's IQ is very high. I watch him create, watch him put himself in position, set guys up into surgical traps. Deontay will knock Fury out inside of five rounds."
