In a recent post published on his Instagram account, Malik Scott, Deontay Wilder’s coach sent a message to Andy Ruiz to sign the contract. And in the comments, Wilder himself seconded the initiative of his coach.

In the video that accompanies the post, Malik Scott wears a T-shirt that says “Time’s Up” across the chest and Wilder points to it.

Deontay Wilder wants Andy Ruiz Jr’s father to be “out of the way” of the contract

In the comment section of Malik Scott’s post, the “Bronze Bomber” also added a couple of comments.

At the start, Wilder seconded Scott’s offer in his first comment.

“Let’s goooooooooooooooooo BOMBZQUADDDDDDDDDDDD,” wrote Wilder.

But then Wilder left a message that would be pointing at Andy Ruiz’s father, who is also his manager, that he could be interfering in the negotiation.

“Big facts but if someone don’t get their daddy out the way it’s not going to be good for him #Broke,” read the second comment from Wilder on the post.

Following the two back to back losses against the reigning WBC monarch Tyson Fury, Wilder returned to winning ways against Robert Helenius with a quick 1st round KO in October last year in New York City.

For his part, Ruiz is on a two fight win streak since losing his unified belts in the rematch against Anthony Joshua in 2019, having defeated Chris Arreola in May 2021 and then Luis Ortiz in September last year, both via unanimous decisions.
