Scott has recently reunited with his childhood trainer Fred Jenkins, and describes it as a motivational drive in his career. Scott explained to ESNEWS, “I’m getting back in the gym. I’m happy to be reunited with my childhood trainer Fred Jenkins. What’s next for me is getting back in to the gym, listening to everything Fred Jenkins tells me.”
Scott also made it clear he wants to take after his mentor Lennox Lewis, and rematch everyone who has ever handed him a defeat.
“I will not stop boxing until I get a rematch with Deontay Wilder. That’s my whole focus. I want to be like one of the fighters like my mentor was, Lennox Lewis. He retired by beating everyone who has ever beat him. I definitely want a rematch with Deontay Wilder, and Dereck Chisora.”
Malik Scott at age 34 will certainly try to expedite the process of climbing the ranks. Boxrec.com currently holds him as 22nd best heavyweight in the world. A rematch with rising star Wilder may seem out of the question for now, but a fight with Chisora might be possible in late 2015, depending how things pan out in either fighter’s career.
