Wilder fires trainer Mark Breland


Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-1-1, 41KOs) has made a huge shakeup in his corner ahead of his still TBD rubber match against WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (30-0-1, 21KOs).

Back in February, Wilder, a five-year holder of the green belt, would relinquish his coveted title in embarrassing fashion. He suffered a one-sided beat down, getting knocked down in the process. To make things worse, at least in the eyes of The Bronze Bomber, his longtime trainer Mark Breland would throw in the towel against the wishes of his fighter. While the move was applauded by many, Wilder, the only man that really matters in the equation, was highly pissed!

He stated in his post fight interview that he would rather go out on his shield than have his corner stop the fight. Obviously, out of concern for his long-term health, Breland had seen enough and made an executive decision. Immediately afterwards, word started circulating that Wilder would dismiss the man who played a big role in his success. Obviously, the smart decision by Breland was too much for Wilder to deal with.

Jay Deas, the former champion’s other longtime trainer, will remain in the corner. It will be interesting to see who Wilder brings in if he goes that route at all.
