Malik Scott Scores One Sided Decision Victory over Alex Leapai


MalikScott1Friday night in Crestmead, Queensland, Australia, perennial contender “King” MALIK SCOTT dominated former world title challenger and hometown favorite ALEX LEAPAI enroute to a ten round unanimous decision.

Out boxing and outhustling Leapai throughout the fight, Scott relentlessly tagged the shorter foe, continuously impressing the judges who scored the bout 100-90, 99-91 and 97-92.

With the win, the Philadelphia native Scott improved to 37-2-1 (13KO’s) while Leapai fell to 30-6-3 (24KO’s).

“This one was for Dan, I was inspired throughout my training to win this fight for him” said Scott of his longtime promoter Dan Goossen who passed away at the age of 64 on September 28th.

“It wasn’t a difficult fight for me, I stuck to my game plan and got him running into my combinations, dominated the fight from the opening bell.”

About the upcoming year, Scott was emphatic about wanting bigger fights and also about a rematch. “Wilder, I want to fight Deontay Wilder again, I’m positive the results would be different this time.”

“We’re very proud of Malik’s performance, he went across the globe and won the fight decisively against Leapai,” said Tom Brown of Goossen Promotions. “This puts him back on track and headed into much bigger fights in 2015. He’s had some bad luck against Glazkov with the scores and Chisora with the quick count over the last two years but the way he fought tonight shows that he can compete with any of the top heavyweights in the world.”
