Malik Scott, the head trainer of Deontay Wilder, says Derek Chisora must work on the inside to have any possibility of upsetting WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury.
The fight between Fury and Chisora takes place on December 3 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
They met on two prior occasions, with Fury winning a dominant twelve round decision over Chisora in 2011 and then stopped Chisora in a one-sided rematch in 2014.
Based on a variety of factors, Chisora is a massive underdog in the upcoming trilogy clash.
Last year, Wilder finished up a trilogy of his own with Fury.
Their first bout, in 2018, ended in a controversial twelve round split draw. The 2020 rematch saw Fury stop Wilder in the seventh round of a one-sided fight. The third bout, which took place in October 2021, saw both fighters get dropped before Fury closed the show by stopping Wilder in the eleventh round.
Scott prepared Wilder for last year's dramatic trilogy clash.
The retired boxer turned trainer believes Fury is most vulnerable on the inside.
"You’ve got to take advantage of his vulnerabilities right there and Derek has to do that," Scott told BT Sport. "He can’t make silent agreements when he gets close, he’s got to work his free hand, you’ve got to beat Tyson Fury up on the inside as much as you can.
"What he can’t do is get close and allow Tyson to hold him. Tyson Fury, when he is in control, is very vulnerable.”
The WBC recently ordered Wilder and former unified champion Andy Ruiz to collide in a final eliminator. If Wilder wins, he would fall in line for the winner of Fury-Chisora.
