MALIK SCOTT:

"I want Vitali Klitschko. He is looking for an opponent; he shouldn't have to look anymore. I'm in the best shape of my life. I can fight right now, I'm undefeated, and I don't think he's ever seen a boxer like me… He be having trouble with guys that I wouldn't even let do my laundry. They not even on my level and they be giving him trouble. This is the perfect time for me to fight him and I think I can stop him right now if we fought…I'm looking to fight Vitali Klitschko, plain and simple. When I'm training, that's the only fighter I'm thinking about and when I'm sleeping, that's the only fighter I'm dreaming of beating. I will fight him anywhere; Berlin wherever. But that's the fight I want right now," stated undefeated heavyweight contender Malik Scott, who talked about his future plans and much more. Check it out!

PC: Malik, you said after the Glazkov fight you were ready to move on to bigger and better things. What do you have in mind?

MS: If it's not Vitali Klitschko…the only 3 opponents I'm interested in fighting is Wladimir, Vitali or Tomasz Adamek. The dude that Wladimir is fighting, no one has even heard of this kid before. I heard Vitali is looking for an opponent. Well, how is he looking for an opponent when I'm always ready to fight and I'm still undefeated and my skill is reigning supreme over the majority of these heavyweights that's out right now. I heard Tomasz Adamek got a fight coming up, so I'm trying to get across the ring from him. So any of those three guys, those are the only guys that I am interested in fighting, man. All of that other shit…I mean, Robert Helenius, I mean, if I gotta beat a Robert Helenius to get to Vitali, that's the fight I wouldn't mind doing either. That's a situation I wouldn't mind, but I'm looking for them three fights: Wladimir, Vitali and Tomasz Adamek. And they can be anywhere. My goal is to be a world champion, not to just be fighting in America or just fighting in Germany. I don't even see how these motherfuckers doing that, man. The title is called a world champion, but they don't do nothing but fight in Germany. You gotta come over here and give out that work and go all over and give out that work. So those are the fights that I'm looking for, bro.

PC: As far as a Glazkov rematch, you feel you are past that and are not entertaining that, are you?

MS: The reason why I'm passing is because Glazkov is a good fighter, but he's just not my caliber. I think he learned a lot by fighting me and that's going to make him a better fighter, but that's not a fight that I'm interested in taking again. You got a better chance of seeing pigs fly before Main Events put him back in the ring with me again. And plus, for a rematch, they not gonna pay me the type of money I deserve for a rematch, so I'm not interested. That's old news. I'm on to bigger and better things, like the three names I just gave you.

PC: Do you have a preference of the three?

MS: Right now, I want Vitali Klitschko. I want Vitali Klitschko. He is looking for an opponent; he shouldn't have to look anymore. I'm in the best shape of my life. I can fight right now, I'm undefeated, and I don't think he's ever seen a boxer like me. He be having trouble with guys that I wouldn't even let do my laundry. They not even on my level and they be giving him trouble. This is the perfect time for me to fight him and I think I can stop him right now if we fought. We will see, man, but these motherfuckers some real cherry-picking type champions, and I told you the modern day coward now hides behind a purse. There was a time if someone didn't want to fight you…there wasn't a time for that. Nowadays, people will say, "I want to fight Malik Scott," but they not offering enough. No nigga, you don't want to fight me because you don't want to fight me. They wanna blame it on the money. If I'm gonna fight Malik Scott, you gotta give me $200,000. You know damn well you not gonna make no $200,000 to fight me, nigga. You just don't want to fight. So that's the type of pussy shit that I'm going through right now on the other side of the paperwork. Perc, I'm looking to fight Vitali Klitschko, plain and simple. When I'm training, that's the only fighter I'm thinking about and when I'm sleeping, that's the only fighter I'm dreaming of beating. I will fight him anywhere; Berlin wherever. But that's the fight I want right now.

PC: When you look at Vitali, we have seen him fight guys 6'4"-6'5", your height, but you don't feel like any of them was on your skill level obviously.

MS: You right, and that's my point when people want to talk about my lack of power or whatever. My whole thing about that is this, nowadays, these motherfuckers is all really on steroids. It's no secret; it's like steroids is the shit that's hot now. So if you don't have power, you can go and get steroids and do certain things to get power. The shit that I got, there is no steroid that can give you this. You are not gonna see nobody 230-240 pounds moving the way that I move. They haven't created a steroid for that yet. These motherfuckers can take all of the steroids they want, but I still know that they can't beat me because you got to have skills to pay the bills. And one thing's for sure, we all know Malik Scott has skills. They can talk all of that other shit they want because I'm not really trusting anybody in the heavyweight division right now besides myself skill for skill. Now, there are a lot of big punchers out there and short guys that apply good pressure, but that shit is over. The people really haven't even seen me yet. The only reason people were picking Glazkov to beat me and knock me out is because they just haven't seen me in so long. The people that was seeing me was like, "No way this dude beating you."

PC: I knew no one with 14 fights was gonna beat you.

MS: Man, you can't have no 14 fights and get in the ring with me. Them motherfuckers crazy, man. But you can't knock Main Events because them the type of fights that we need. And they can bring anymore of them type of prospects on, but I just don't have time for that shit. The only motherfuckers I got time for are the three names I gave you. If it's not any of them three, man, I would rather just be around here playing with my kids until I can get one of them fights.

PC: So you are willing to face Vitali in his back yard and you don't care what he's on; you're not asking for any type of special testing?

MS: Whatever steroids that they are on, tell them that I said stay on them, and whatever advantages that they have over there in Germany, they can keep those advantages. They can do me a favor and sign the contract. Send me a contract and I will have it back to them faster than Superman changes clothes. I'm not tripping at all. Perc, right now, he is looking for an opponent. Why not me? I don't understand. That motherfucker Wladimir Klitschko getting ready to fight…I never even heard of him and I'm a pugilist that follows the game. I never heard of this dude. And I'm not one of these fighters that don't know boxing. No, this is the only thing that I have ever done. I have never had a 9 to 5 [job]. I don't know how it feels to wake up and go to work. No, my job has always been to box, since the age of 12. So all of these other motherfuckers that is coming from basketball and coming from football, that shit is cute. It can't fuck with the schooling that I'm coming from.

PC: Well, we gonna put the word out, man, and see what happens. Is there anything you want to close with?

MS: I need that headline to be, "Vitali Klitschko has never seen a fighter like me and I will fight him anywhere at any time, and after that, I will beat Wladimir Klitschko!" You know they got it in the contract if you beat me, you gotta fight my brother and all that old type of shit. But I don't have a problem with that because I would want it like that anyway. I come from that type of school to where that's what we said; I'll beat you and your brother. I need them reading this and their mother reading this because I'm about to get real disrespectful, man. I'm in the best shape of my life, so somebody gonna have a bad day when they get in the ring with me.
