On currently being optimistic that Gerald Washington will combat Anthony Joshua:

Malik Scott: “Gerald Washington is a person of the foremost names to potentially combat Anthony Joshua, It is not a rumour, it’s an precise simple fact that he’s one of the possibilities. And it’s a little something Gerald is prepared for. I continue to keep telling people today, Gerald is a big, solid, heavy handed man. The physicalities are there, but what we have been performing on is psychological endurance. And fighting at the greatest amount, that is additional significant than the bodily.

“Gerald is greater than at any time, he’s hungrier than ever, and I simply cannot hold out for you guys to see him. And I can’t hold out to see him below the lights myself.

“I’m pretty optimistic the combat will get produced, in particular at this place with the move they’re trying to do for AJ, that’s what tends to make me optimistic about it due to the fact I know the mission they are on with AJ. And that’s not the mission I’m on for Deontay and AJ.”

On AJ ducking all his hefty weights like Deontay Wilder:

“At 1 time it looked like we’re receiving ready to get a Deontay-AJ battle built, then you listen to AJ and his group want to do other factors.

You’re ducking Deontay Wilder, Gerald Washington is prepared to fight correct now, in top rated issue, mentally and spiritually and bodily.”

On Andy Ruiz being Deontay Wilder’s next opponent:

“It’s down to the mystery opponent and Andy Ruiz Jr. Due to the fact AJ had created up his mind and does not want to combat Deontay appropriate now, we’re down to Andy Ruiz and the thriller guy. The thriller fighter is not as confirmed to materialize as the Ruiz fight. If you’re looking at it from the organization perspective, it’s most very likely heading to be the necessary shot, Ruiz.

“It’s on the lookout like Ruiz, but in this activity there is no telling as Deontay is major-time boxing. When you’re bigtime boxing, and as unfortunate or as unfortunate it may audio to some individuals, mandatories really don’t indicate nothing at all.

“We could be heading in March or early April but it truly is dependent. The only issue I can say at the moment is Ruiz is mandated but Deontay is major-time boxing.

“And when you have a significant-time boxer like Deontay and a mandatory heading on at the same time – and there’s an additional even larger fighter – stage a side happens some time, you in no way know. Company is eager to be produced to make greater fights occur.”
