Dillian Whyte savages ‘idiot’ Deontay Wilder for ‘worst mistake he’s ever made’ as he prepares for Tyson Fury trilogy

0


Dillian Whyte has slammed Deontay Wilder for making what he believes is ‘the worst mistake he’s ever made’ by splitting with co-trainer Mark Breland.

America’s former WBC heavyweight champion was dethroned by Tyson Fury back in February, with the towel being thrown in to end the contest in round seven.

Breland – the man who threw the towel – has now left the team as a result.

Wilder’s co-manager Shelly Finkel told BoxingScene: “That was the decision that was made. After his next fight it will be determined if the right decision was made or not.”

The ‘Bronze Bomber’s’ main trainer Jay Deas will remain with him and prepare him for the trilogy which is currently being targeted for December.

Former opponent Malik Scott will now take a more serious role alongside Deas in Wilder’s training team.

After hearing the news, Whyte told Sky: “I think it’s the worst mistake he’s ever made, because Mark Breland is the only person in his team that actually was a boxer and was actually a world champion.

“He was the only person that didn’t care about money or fame.

“Someone who was actually from an emotional point, someone who understands, thinking about his health and did the right thing by throwing the towel in, because he could have got seriously hurt.

“He was getting hit with punches that weren’t knocking him out, they were concussing him.

“Mark Breland knows what it’s like, because Mark Breland has been in the same position Wilder was in.

“He’s someone that cares about the athlete and the boxing side of things. Not just ‘Bomb Squad’, nonsense. He doesn’t care about that.

“He’s the only one in the team, you don’t see him running around and shouting and screaming. He’s just a little quiet guy, does his job.

“Deontay Wilder is an idiot, he clearly can’t see it.

“Good luck to him, it’s his team, he can do whatever he wants. But I think it’s a bad mistake. Mark Breland is the only one that knows boxing in his team.”

Wilder has not made any comment on the decision as he is currently not giving any interviews whatsoever.

A few days after the rematch though, he discussed potentially splitting with Breland.

“I am upset with Mark for the simple fact that we’ve talked about this many times,” Wilder said in late February.

“I’m not being emotional now. For many, many years, I have talked about this to my team.

“They know my demeanour, my warrior mindset and if I say I’m going in there to try to kill a man like I have, I accept that in return: he will have to kill me as well.

“I’ve told them many times that if anyone throws the towel in on me, there will be consequences.

“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.”
