Deontay Wilder will benefit from the trilogy fight with Tyson Fury being postponed, his trainer Malik Scott has claimed.
The heavyweights were due to meet in a trilogy bout in Las Vegas this month, however Fury tested positive for COVID.
They will now clash on October 9 instead, live on talkSPORT.
Scott reacted: “It’s a great thing because it just gives us more time to marinate Fury for the cooking.
“I said Fury wasn’t making it out of five rounds before the postponement.
“But now, since we have more time to prepare, it’s really about to get ugly.”
When asked if there were any frustrations about the delay, he added: “A little but I’m a camp head. I love training camp.
“All my life, even having my own homes on the road, camp life has always been my first home.
“It’s peace, it’s hard work, it’s fun, it’s isolated from your usual everyday hectic schedule when you’re at home.
“So if anything I just felt bad for Deontay because it’s the third postponement that has happened to him for the trilogy.
“But either way, more time we get to marinate Fury is going to make the taste of victory even more sweeter.
“I’m not leaving camp until Deontay Wilder is two-time heavyweight champion.”
Further pressed about whether he believes Fury tested positive for COVID, Scott concluded: “I don’t believe nothing Tyson Fury says.”
