Wilder’s trainer ‘reduced to tears after being banned from dressing room’ for throwing in towel after Tyson Fury loss – The Sun

DEONTAY WILDER left his trainer in tears after banishing him from the dressing room following his crushing defeat to Tyson Fury.

Mark Breland threw in the towel midway through the seventh round after watching the Bronze Bomber get battered from pillar to post in Las Vegas.

Wilder, 34, was floored twice in the third and fifth-round before Breland had eventually seen enough.

The American was hugely critical of his trainer's decision and called him out publicly in the aftermath by saying: "I am upset with Mark for the simple fact that we've talked about this many times and it's not emotional.

"I said as a warrior, as a champion, as a leader, as a ruler, I want to go out on my shield. If I'm talking about going in and killing a man, I respect the same way. I abide by the same principal of receiving.

"So I told my team to never, ever, no matter what it may look like, to never throw the towel in with me because I'm a special kind. I still had five rounds left. No matter what it looked like, I was still in the fight."

And it appears his hostility towards Breland was so strong that he reduced the 56-year-old to tears, according to British-based promoter Spencer Fearon.

Speaking to PepTalkUK, he revealed: "Mark Breland did the right thing, I’m backing Mark Breland, a beautiful human being.

"Mark Breland was outside the changing room crying, did you know that?

"He was crying because that man said he couldn’t come in the changing room.

"That’s your fighter, you built you own personal relationship, you’ve been with this man from the get-go, and they are saying to you, ‘no, you can’t come in the changing room’.

"You see how deluded and twisted these guys are? And it ain’t gonna get no better.



"If Deontay Wilder doesn’t apologise to Mark Breland the same thing is going to happen again, and it’s going to be worse."

Wilder has made it no secret of his intention to invoke a clause in the fight deal to have a third and final scrap with Fury.

He sensationally blamed his defeat on a 45-pound walk-out costume by claiming it made him to go weak at the knees.
