Deontay Wilder’s trainer outlines exactly how Oleksandr Usyk can beat Tyson Fury

Oleksandr Usyk would have a decent chance of beating Tyson Fury if the pair were to meet in the boxing ring, according to Malik Scott.

Deontay Wilder's trainer prepared the Bronze Bomber for his trilogy bout with the WBC champion, after the American had failed to win in two previous attempts.

But the third meeting ended up being more of the same, as the Gypsy King survived multiple knock-downs to land an 11th round knockout blow.

So Scott couldn't help Wilder to beat Fury – but he reckons he knows how WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champ Usyk can do what the Bronze Bomber couldn't.

He believes the southpaw, who took his titles from Anthony Joshua in September, can come out on top against Fury – whose reflexes, he claims, are in decline as he ages.

"I don’t think it's far-fetched that he beats Fury at all," Scott told Boxing News. "He's extremely stubborn… He's fought big guys and beaten them before.

"You've also got to think this is the best time for Usyk to fight Fury. Fury isn't fast no more, he doesn't have reflexes like he used to.

"The style he is fighting with right now, believe it or not, it works perfect for Usyk to win that fight.

"If there's anyone that can box with Usyk it's the younger Fury, the Wladimir Klitschko Fury. But this new Fury works perfect for Usyk.

"Don't be surprised if Usyk becomes undisputed champion and beats Fury next year.

"How's Fury going to deal with it when he's getting hit by Usyk, when he realizes this guy can punch harder than he expected? How's he going to deal with that?

"We'll see. But I won't be shocked at all if Usyk beats him. It's almost expected by me."

Fans will have to wait to see what happens in each fighter's next bout before they can begin to dream about a meeting between the two men who currently hold all the major heavyweight world titles.

Usyk must honour a rematch with Joshua, and Fury is not allowed to simply sit around and wait for the result of that one as he must face Dillian Whyte.

If he beats the WBC's mandatory challenger and Usyk manages to retain his titles, then a bout for the title of undisputed heavyweight champ would be on the cards.
