Another forecast for Wilder’s next fight.
Either Bermane Stiverne or Chris Arreola will not last more than 3 rounds.
Another easy KO for the up coming super star.

Posted March 16, 2014 12:13 am 


Left hook follow up with a mini straight right. Bingo! Thats it !
Adios Scott!

Posted March 15, 2014 10:47 pm 


31 KO, 1.5 minute in round 1.

Posted March 15, 2014 10:19 pm 


this guy is gonna be in a rude awakening when he fights top ten heavys. Wlad will destroy him with one right straight of left hook.. Saw he barely win the bronze in the Olympics. nothing special about him

another hw hype job. nothing new.

Posted March 11, 2014 11:47 am 


The only boxer who can challenge Wilder is Anthony Joshua from England. He is phenomenon.

Not even the klintschko brother.

I love boxing since 30 years ago。 I didn’t follow up any boxing after Mike Tyson’s reign.

Btw, I studied Bermane Stiverne and Chris Arreola fights recently. Both of em are no match against Deontay.

I think DT will get the WBC title after 32 KOs.

Posted March 11, 2014 9:21 am 


Tell u what! I studied Malik’s fights. His head move toward to his opponent too often. This is the perfect range for Deontay, easy target. This fight will end up within 3 rounds. Another easy KO for Deontay.

Scott was ko’d by Chisora so why is he fighting an eliminator and Wilder’s best win is againt that chicken Audley Harrison.

Count Duckula

Why are these 2 bums fighting a title eliminator, they haven’t beaten any one whos any good.

Posted March 10, 2014 6:19 am 


haha. theres no conspiracy going on here! you gotta stop thinking to much! the winner will most likely get a first up voluntary defense as well so dont exspect the winner of wilder and scott to get a shot any time soon! im picking a stiverne win then he will have at least 4 months break before his first up voluntary!

Posted March 9, 2014 10:49 pm 


I actually like this fight I think Scott is much better than chisora he can box the only problem is when he gets hit hard he will probably fall apart.

Posted March 9, 2014 9:28 pm 


If they want an American champ that bad give Jennings a shot.

Posted March 9, 2014 9:27 pm 


They’re trying to hand a title to Arreola… It’s a fraud.

He gets a title shot at Stiverne who already beat him.

Arreola was beaten by Adamek, and wouldn’t stand a chance against Haye, Fury, Pulev, Glazkov, or Povetkin.

I’ll be interested in hearing the scores when he fights Stiverne.

Posted March 9, 2014 9:27 pm 


Sure the state of hw boxing was much better when your boxer was ruling the division :-)
Problem today isnt lack of quality, but the fact that the contenders doesnt fight each other. What we see with wilder is a joke, that shows one of the organization who are desperate to get an american fighter a title.

Posted March 9, 2014 1:59 pm 


Wilder or Scott don’t excite me in the slightest. Wilder has thus far been unable to demonstrate a grasp of even boxing basics such as how to place your feet and throw hooks without falling on your opponent. Scott has much better boxing basics but seriously lacks power and is woefully short of being anywhere close to world class. I’m afraid these two clowns fighting for a (once respected) world title eliminator just sums up exactly how pitiful this current era of HW boxing has degraded. Any of Lewis, Tyson, Holyfield, Bowe, Tua, McCall, Mercer and even Bruno, Morrison, Briggs would simply demolish the contenders of this era. I’m afraid if the best of the rest in this era are Pulev, Fury, Chisora and Wilder/Scott then it says it all for me. As dominant as the Klits have been, I’m afraid beating the clowns that they have done would be an easy task for any stand out boxer from any era.

It’s sad to pin so many hopes on a single boxer but I genuinely can’t wait for Anthony Joshua to step up and see if he has what it takes. This is the ONLY hope I see of any form of HW excitement any time soon. Until he steps up and hopefully progresses, watching the pathetic pretenders of this shameful era is only slightly more fun that having both legs lopped off with a blunt gardening tool.

Posted March 9, 2014 1:50 pm 


“The March 15th WBC heavyweight eliminator bout between Deontay Wilder and Malik Scott is one of the more exciting fights to be made in the last few years.” This is probably the worst single line in an article in the last few years.

Highest ranking opponent Wilder has faced and beaten was that hooker he choked out.. I didn’t see it but I heard it was a close fight

Posted March 9, 2014 5:54 am 


HWs have no shame( see pic)

Posted March 9, 2014 1:03 am 


Hamster.., Scott wasn’t looking for a way out. He was winning the fight and not busted up in the least. He wasn’t looking for favors. If he wanted out he would have stayed down. It was an equilibrium shot and he took a 9-count.

That’s what they train you do do. Be smart and take what the rules give you.

He was keeling, watching the count carefully, and got up on time. You get a full 10-count to get up and Scott was taking full advantage of it. He knew he was winning and he didn’t wanted to have all the time he could take to be as clear headed as possible. It was a possible turning point and he needed to be ready to respond.

Posted March 8, 2014 11:39 pm 


Crap fight, title eliminator Lol.

Posted March 8, 2014 10:43 pm 


I don`t dispute it was a hostile ref, and letter of the law or not, the fight felt dirty because of the way it ended, but my sympathy just isn`t there for someone who waits till the count of nine and then acts surprised when he is counted out.

My reading on it is that he was starting to creak under the pressure and was happy to take a way out. Like Judah does.

He certainly doesn`t deserve to be handed a title eliminator, neither does Wilder.

Posted March 8, 2014 10:04 pm 


Hamster…, The referee didn’t say “OUT” either… He started waving his hands right after he said “nine..”. There is a pause between 9 and OUT… Since you can’t say OUT when the boxer is completely on his feet and facing you he didn’t say it.. Scott took the time allotted for a knockdown… Scott explained that he could have gotten up at any time. He said he took the time allowed for a knockdown because it was a behind the head equilibrium shot. He knows where he got hit. He’s the boxer who took the shot.

Scott got a quick count… He can hear perfectly well and he intended to take a 9 count and got a quick count… If he was hurt or behind on points the referee probably would have let the fight continue, but he was ahead and wasn’t hurt … After you get up you have a few seconds because the referee talks to you, and rubs your gloves off, and asks you if you can continue. Then he often has you walk a couple steps forward. If you pass that process it’s “box.”

Friendly refs use the full process… Hostile refs rub the gloves perfunctorily and order you to box immediately… This was an extremely hostile referee, who wanted Chisora to “Spank the Yank.”

Posted March 8, 2014 8:06 pm 

Swedish Boxing Fan

I said it before and I say this again. I’m not the guy who wan’ts to complain and I have respect for Malic Scotts boxing skills.

However he have done nothing to deserve being ranked in Top 15# by any of the 4 major world title organisations (WBC, WBA, IBF & WBO) or by Ring Magazine etc and he is NOT even there so how is this possible?.

Scott have NEVER defeated a recognised top contender in his entire PRO career and his best known fight was last year being stoped by top man Dereck Chisora, so how can that award him to fight in a “world title” eleminator? What?

Thats right he have done nothing and allmost all agree with that statement becouse its all true. There are so many other heavyweights out there who could and should be put up here in a world title eleminator bout against Deontay Wilder (I will not dig in his right for the shot as I can at least accapt that position becouse he sells, have lots of power and have fought in better fights recently then others)

Kubrat Pulev, Derek Chisora, Tyson Fury, Tomasz Adamek, Bryant Jennings, Lucas Browne, Fres Oquendo, Tony Thompson, Mike Perez, Alex Leapai etc are all fighters ranked and recognised by all four major world title organistations and Fightnews Top 15# as well, still non of these contenders where offered the oppertunity. Its a joke.

ALSO, this fight is not, I citate the article author:
“one of the more exciting fights to be made in the last few years. ”

That is false advertisment as there have been a lot of negative reacts and responds to this fight being officaly recognised a “WBC World heavyweight title eleminator”.
This fight does not at all live up to that advertisment or promo for the fight at all and I’m not out to critizise the author becouse I have respect for the EB writers but this is to much to accept.

Agree any more people? I’m done with this comment and have spoken my and others oppinion.

Posted March 8, 2014 7:54 pm 


TARK…..From the secretary of the BBBC under whose rules the Chisora Scott fight was fought responding to Goosen….

“I understand the points you have raised but in answering feel I must first clarify them,” Smith wrote. “Firstly, when describing the process of Mr. Scott rising, you quite correctly make reference to Mr. Scott ‘having nothing on the canvas but his feet’ at the count of nine. However, under British Boxing Board of Control Rules (3.32) a boxer is deemed to be ‘down’ by one of four criteria, one of which is ‘when the boxer is in the act of rising.’ Therefore, the point at which the boxer has nothing on the canvas but his feet is not the point at which the boxer is no longer ‘down.’

“Most importantly, after a boxer is ‘down’ boxing can only continue when the boxer ‘is in a position and a condition to defend himself.’

“Secondly, you state that referee Phil Edwards ‘never reached or uttered the count of 10.’ Again, you are quite right. In the United Kingdom (like many countries) the count of the referee (having picked it up from the timekeeper) is ‘7, 8, 9, out.’ Ten is never called by any referee in any contest in this country.

Posted March 8, 2014 7:14 pm 


If Deontay wins this one GB should use some of that money to invest in a big fight for him. Like the winner of Arreola-Stiverne. Lay out enough cash to scare everyone else off. It’s a damned title fight.

Posted March 8, 2014 6:51 pm 


It’s good to have Golden Boy behind you, and their lawyers.

Deontay didn’t get the Ibeabuchi treatment.

Posted March 8, 2014 5:34 pm 


When guys like Sonowski..Shufford..Pianeta..get a title shot and a few others…then any fighter from any other era isnt that big a deal…

Posted March 8, 2014 5:31 pm 


Tark…Scott likes to run,so he will last longer then 90 sec. But he cant fight under pressure like Chisora showed us,so hes the perfect match for Wilder who will make him fold from those crude bombs.

Posted March 8, 2014 5:21 pm 


Boxrec’s ratings are strictly political… They’re the world’s worst.

Wilder took care of Harrison in 90 seconds and I guarantee you he won’t be finishing Scott off that fast.

Posted March 8, 2014 2:42 pm 


Boxrec has Scott ranked in the mid 30’s- right below Audley Harrison!!

Deontay is like number 10!

While this is an amusing fight, no way should it be a title eliminator.

Wilder’s people picked Scott because he has a name, no chin, little heart, and has faced competion just as bad as Deontay has ( Chisora excepted ).

Check boxrec. Scott’s opponents have been terrible- and he can’t even knock THOSE guys out…

This is the biggest fraud in the history of title eliminators.

Posted March 8, 2014 2:15 pm 

slim prickman

if this is a good heavyweight fight today,i would hate to see a bad one.

Posted March 8, 2014 2:09 pm 


No. It’s a good fight. Scott was beating Chisora on points when he caught a shot behind the ear… It was an equilibrium shot so he took a 9-count as a precaution.

As a result he got robbed because everyone clearly saw he was up before the referee counted to 10. In fact, the referee didn’t even say “10” he said “9” and waved his arms.

Posted March 8, 2014 1:26 pm 


Scott had a draw with Glazkov that he should have won and Glaskov is fighting Adamek. I agree Wilder vs. Chisorea or Fury would make more sense as an eliminator but this is boxing. Considering Mormeck, Pianeta, Wach, Charr, and Sosnowski have gotten title shots is Wilder-Scott really that ridiculous of an eliminator?

Posted March 8, 2014 1:20 pm 


At last Wilder steps up and the first time he does its an “eliminater” boxing gets stranger every weak. Someone somewhere has got a case full of money for putting these to clowns names into the equation.

Posted March 8, 2014 11:18 am 

Exiled Yank

If Wilder has any shot at all for the HW title, he needs to do it quick while WK is mentally distracted with the problems in Ukraine. Even with all that, WK wins and makes wilder look like an amateur. This guy has been babyfed through the ranks.

Yet another example of what a joke the
WBC (We Believe-in Cash) is. How Wilder finds himself in any Top 10 at this point in time with the level of competition he has faced is a total mystery.
After Wlad it’s Pulev, Fury, Stiverne, Arreola, Chisora as well Hughie Fury and Joshua down the line. Sorry folks I just cant see Wilder lasting, never mind beating any of these guys…

Posted March 8, 2014 2:57 am 


Wilder refused to fight Chisora, Fury and Thompson. When Scott got knocked out by Chisora Wilder decided to fight him. Why not fight Jennings? Scott is not top ten………….

Posted March 8, 2014 12:15 am 


Scott has been a boxing gypsy long enough…he’s a slick guy but boring and needs to find another way of making a living after this matchup of a never was and a never will be..Wilder can punch but is C level at best

Posted March 7, 2014 11:21 pm 


I think Scott can win this. Scott by stoppage, round 5.

Posted March 7, 2014 9:39 pm 


Why wouldnt Wilder want Jennings or Chisora,and really prove a whole lot more then this???

Posted March 7, 2014 9:29 pm 


Scott was trembling when Chisora turned up the heat and applied pressure,so it makes perfect sence Wilder and his team would want Scott a lamb for the killing.But Scott is better then the guy Wilder is fighting in this is still being moved very,very,carefull on a smooth road untill the cash out for a title shot.I could be wrong but all the signs are pointing that team Wilder are hiding something and dont want Wilder exposed until a title shot…..lets see.

Posted March 7, 2014 9:20 pm 


This is a good fight but I am just not big on heavies. Though when I saw that Joshua kid fight a week or so ago I was very impressed and actually look forward to him fighting. He is the only heavy I care to watch
