Tyson Fury has a history with Deontay Wilder’s new trainer, Malik Scott.
The retired former heavyweight contender now coaches the ex-WBC champion as they attempt to reclaim his “Gypsy King” belt on July 24.
Wilder himself beat Scott in one round when they met in 2013 and it has now been revealed that he also fought Fury several years ago.
While Wilder declined to speak at the trilogy’s first press conference, Fury instead exchanged words with his trainer.
Fury began, “You can’t expect him to do something you couldn’t do.”
Scott asked, “Like what, knock you out?”
To which Fury replied, “Yeah, like that.”
Scott then revealed, “Me and you never fought Tyson. You broke my eardrum when we practiced.
Fury added: “We practiced, didn’t we? And we know what happened there.
Scott replied: “You are a 260 pound man who can fight, you broke my eardrum the first time we trained.
“It’s not something to brag about, you can fight, it’s what you do …
“The first day he broke my eardrum, then I came back and punched him the next day.
“Then the next day it happened, I couldn’t hear and I couldn’t keep on boxing, that shit happens in boxing.”
Fury quipped, “As we talk about breaking the ears, don’t we find it funny that I break the eardrums of these two guys, coach and fighter? Crazy statistics.
