Deontay Wilder was 'untrainable' and coaches had to keep criticism to themselves or feel 'his wrath', says Mark Breland
DEONTAY WILDER'S sacked trainer Mark Breland has sensationally labelled the deposed heavyweight champ 'untrainable' in an extraordinary rant.
Breland, 57, was axed from Team Wilder following the American's battering at the hands of Tyson Fury last year.
It was Breland who threw the towel in as Wilder was taught a boxing lesson by the Gypsy King to suffer his first ever loss.
Wilder has since accused Breland of 'spiking his water' and accused him of betraying him.
In a lengthy post shared on Instagram, Breland, who had 39 fights as a pro winning 35, described that as a 'ludicrous allegation' and 'outlandish and ridiculous'.
He also opened up on what life was like in Wilder's training camp in what is sure to stoke the fires between the pair still further.
Breland wrote: "I'll use my own platform since I've been 'opened like a can of sardines'.
"Deontay had become untrainable because he was at the point of 'he knows more about boxing than all of us'.
"So teaching a correct jab was not a priority to learn once he continues on his knockout streak. So a coach can only teach someone if they're willing to learn.
"We would wait for the champ hours before he arribed at the gym and Jay [Deas, Wilder's manager] would inform us of his mood.
"If he had a bad day we had to 'be quiet' to not be on the receiving end of 'his wrath' in an effort to not be 'fired'.
Breland added that Wilder didn't fancy doing much cardio with 'running not high on the list for him'.
Former WBC king Wilder was hurt by Breland's blistering rant about his boxing career being 'done' and can't fathom why he's turned on him
But Breland has now moved to state that he meant his working relationship with Wilder was 'done' and not the boxer's career.
He finished the statement by adding that he 'won't be speaking about it anymore'.
Fury won by TKO after Wilder's corner threw in the towel in the seventh round to stop the systematic beating – with many boxing fans believing the deposed champ was 'concussed'.
The American was furious with the decision – but no-one inside the MGM Grand would have any arguments on a sensational night for Fury and British sport.
Even two of the judges who had come in for some stick before they had even started their night's work gave EVERY ROUND to the Gypsy King.
The other kindly threw the second Wilder's way.
