Deontay Wilder is continuing to work tirelessly in the gym with Malik Scott as he prepares to make his return to the ring.
The hard-hitting heavyweight has been out of the ring for over a year since his devastating WBC title loss to Tyson Fury in February 2020.
Although a trilogy was proposed, it seems Fury is now targeting a fight with Anthony Joshua to completely unify the heavyweight division, with an announcement expected this week.
Wilder is still continuing to train alongside Scott, despite not having an opponent as of yet, with the 40-year-old posting a fresh video of the pair working together on the pads.

Wilder had a rematch clause in his contract with Tyson Fury when they met last February, but consistent delays led Fury to pursue a gigantic match-up with Anthony Joshua.
He had been rumoured to be fighting former IBF belt holder Charles Martin, but the fight appears to have fizzled out.
