Francis Ngannou vs Deontay Wilder Fight: Wilder’s Coach Breaks the Silence
Deontay Wilder’s coach, Malik Scott, has shared his insights on the topic by saying that his student could face the former UFC champion.
“We’re talking. He’s an option now, and we’re going to see where things go. I personally think he’s ready to do good business.

“In my opinion, he (Ngannou) is very dangerous. It’s a high-risk fight for anyone, but I think Deontay would knock Francis out.”
