And its seems Deontay Wilders trainer, Malik Scott was impressed with his performance.

Scott speaking to Mill City Boxing said: “I thought he did a lot better than he did his last fights, he wasn’t as hesitant, even when he stepped up on Wallin he did it from behind his front knee and he went to the body first. He was punching with bad intentions at Wallin’s guard.”

“He was throwing hooks inside of Wallin hooks. That’s what I was impressed with the most, how short AJ’s hooks was. And that’s what broke Wallin’s nose.

He continued: “If AJ had been throwing wide hooks, he would have probably clipped Wallin from an equilibrium type of standpoint. But the hooks was so short while Wallin was hooking from a southpaw standpoint, that the hooks was getting right in. And they was getting in on his nose.

“To be sharpshooting like that, you have to be extremely, extremely focused and concentrating on your guy. AJ did a few things very well, very well.

“Lot of pressure was on him, and he came in and handled business and did what he had to do. When a man does himself well, to me there is only one thing to do, give him credit and wish him well. And AJ did.”
