Deontay Wilder added uncertainty to his situation, by breaking the working relationship with Mark Breland, one of his coaches. It was Breland who threw the towel in surrender in the rematch fight against Tyson fury and that would provoke the claims of Wilder.
In preparation for his third fight with Tyson fury, Wilder made a significant performance decision and fired Mark Breland, one of his main trainers.
Shelly Finkel, advisor to Bronze Bomber, relayed the news to journalist Steve Kim from ESPN:
“It won’t be part of the next fight,” Finkel said. “Things will change with the team that is there, with Malik Scott in a more important role ”.
The businessman compared this situation to the change he made Fury before the second duel with his handler.
Gypsy king fired Ben davison to hire ShugarHill Steward as head of his team, who increased his aggressiveness, according to Shelly Finkel.
In turn, it is known that Jay deas, the Alabama-born head coach, will continue to serve.
Breland and Wilder
Mike breland he was the one who threw in the towel in what meant the first professional defeat of Deontay Wilder, in revenge with Tyson fury.
The American boxer publicly claimed that decision of Breland. It is rumored that the resentments materialized since then.
All these theories were dismissed by the manager of Wilder.
“Nobody knows what happens in our camp before a fight, or if this change occurred after that fight, or if it was the culmination,” he emphasized Finkel.
Postponed date for trilogy
Bob arum, promoter of Top rank, recently emphasized in a talk with ESPN, that December 19 will not be the date for the third contest of the saga Fury–Wilder.
As managers look for a new location on the schedule for the clash, Arum trusts that the event will be able to organize “a little earlier, in December”.
