Interesting facts about Malik, Kate Abdo’s partner

Kate Abdo and her boyfriend, Malik Scott, made their relationship public in 2024 with an Instagram post.

Since then, the couple has posted romantic photos on their Instagram accounts and been spotted publicly several times.

However, even with the couple going public, several details about them remain a mystery. This is especially true for Malik Scott, who leads a less public life than his girlfriend.

So, who is Malik Scott? Below is everything about Kate Abdo’s partner.

He is from America

Malik Scott was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, on October 16, 1980. He is an American national of African-American ethnicity.

Scott’s father, Leroy Marcellus Scott, was a street gangster who was once incarcerated for ten years for armed robbery. His mother, Rome Davis, used to work for Philco Ford.

He was raised mostly by his mother, with his father having been in prison for most of his childhood.

As a kid, Malik often spent time in the streets, forcing his mother to call Fred Jenkins, a neighborhood gym owner, to find him (Scott).

In an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, the former boxer revealed that he was a skinny kid from North Philadelphia trying to act tough and looking to sell drugs.

However, things took a turn for the better when Scott started boxing. He stated:

“Boxing led me to see the world.”

He is a former professional boxer turned coach

After he started boxing as a kid, Malik Scott had an exemplary amateur career.

He won several competitions in his youth, such as the Junior Olympic Championships, Under-19 Junior World Championships, and the 1998 American Boxing Classic title.

Scott turned professional in 2000. Between 2000 and 2016, he competed in 42 bouts, winning 38, drawing once, and only losing thrice.

Some of the most impressive Malik Scott’s wins include against Terry McGroom, David Bostice, Louis Monaco, Charles Shufford, Vyacheslav Glazkov, Tony Thompson, and Derek Chisora.

After retiring from boxing, Scott became a boxing coach. He is currently the head coach of Deontay Wilder, an American boxer whom he lost to in 2014.

He met Kate Abdo through boxing

Kate and Malik have not revealed exactly how they met. However, they likely crossed paths because of boxing.

Before moving to CBS, where she covers the UEFA Champions League, Kate Abdo worked at DAZN, Fox, and Sky Sports, where she used to cover boxing events.

On top of that, before the two started dating, Kate Abdo posted several videos showing her training with Malik Scott on her Instagram account.

Training with Malik is paying off for Abdo, as there are several rumors that she might make her boxing debut.

The presenter also alluded to this when she told CBS:

 “I’am training for something! Find me the right person, I’ll fight’ em.”

He plans on marrying Kate Abdo

Kate Abdo and Malik Scott are not married. However, they are very much in love and may tie the knot soon.

In an interview with Lord Ping, Scott spoke fondly about Abdo, saying:

“I’m very much in love with her, and I plan on marrying her.” He also praised her broadcasting skills, branding her the “Michael Jordan of broadcasting.”

Scott was speaking to Lord Ping in defense of her girlfriend after her CBS co-star, Jamie Carragher, in an awkward joke, accused her of not being loyal to Malik.

While the two co-stars have since mended fences, Scott sent a warning shot to Carragher, even going as far as stating that he would “show up in a physical manner for him” if he continued upsetting Abdo.

The former boxer is not the only one interested in marriage. In 2023, while covering the Champions League for CBC, the presenter joked that she was getting engaged, but Malik was not aware of it yet.

He has never been married before

Before meeting Malik, Kate Abdo was married to businessman Ramtin Abdolmajid. The couple divorced in 2016, though neither party revealed the reason for their split.

Malik Scott, on the other hand, has not been married before. However, he was previously in a relationship with model Nancy Ramirez.

Malik Scott and Kate Abdo do not have any children together, and neither of them has any children from their past relationships.
