The CBS Sports star has been training with Scott in the famous Brickhouse Boxing Club in North Hollywood.

And the trainer – who currently works with ex-heavyweight champion Wilder – was left mightily impressed.

Scott added: "What I'm impressed with the most is she's a sponge for knowledge.

"She's not one of these people that has this type of certain job but don't actually want to be in the mix of boxing – and not just from behind the mic.

Despite the praise, Abdo admitted she cannot always duck out of constructive criticism from Scott.

She said: "He'll tell me I have slow feet!"
