Scott – who is in charge of Wilder’s trilogy fight against the Gypsy King on October 9 – spoke about his experience with Fury in a Q&A on Instagram. 

The former heavyweight boxer said: ‘I flew to Brussels, Belgium alone.

‘Boxed Fury a few sessions, he was very good and mobile for a big man. Big personality but you could tell he was missing a screw or two – for the better, if that makes sense.

‘The first session we sparred I got hit by a right hook around my guard and it clogged my eardrum up.

‘We boxed eight rounds that day, after that we did two more sessions throughout the week and my ear just got worse and worse.

‘So I decided enough was enough because I was still an active fighter at the time, so I told Peter [Fury] that would be it for me.

‘They paid me my money, gave me a train ticket and I wished them luck and the rest is history.’

However, Scott has since hit out at Fury, claiming he shouldn’t brag about ‘busting’ his eardrum. 

He said: ‘You’re a 260lbs man that can fight, you bust my eardrum the first time we sparred.

‘That’s not something to brag about, you can fight, that’s what you do…The first day he bust my eardrum, then I come back and boxed him the next day.

‘Then the next day it happened, I couldn’t hear and I couldn’t continue to box, this s*** happens in boxing.’

Scott’s Q&A about the British boxer came ahead of Wilder’s showdown with Fury in October. 

Wilder’s bout with the Gypsy King was originally scheduled for July 24. However, Fury tested positive for coronavirus, forcing the trilogy fight to be rearranged for early in October. 

Nevertheless, both athletes will be eager to get the fight underway after an extra two months of training. 

Fury and Wilder’s first fight in December 2018 ended in a thrilling draw, while the second fight saw the Briton lay on a savage beating of the previously undefeated American in February 2020. 

However, The Bronze Bomber has since claimed that Fury cheated during their second fight in Sin City, alleging that Fury had an ‘egg weight’ concealed in his glove, that his water was spiked, and that his ring walk outfit was too heavy.
