Wilder To Sack Coach Who Threw In The Towel Against Fury

Wilder To Sack Coach  Who Threw In The Towel Against Fury

Deontay Wilder will part company with coach Mark Breland after he threw in the towel in the seventh round of his defeat by Tyson Fury.

Breland has been widely praised for his decision as Wilder took a beating in the corner of the ring having been dropped twice earlier in the fight

But head trainer Jay Deas later said he disagreed with the move – and Wilder has backed up his cornerman.

After confirming he will exercise his right to a trilogy fight with Fury, Wilder revealed he is ready to change his coaching team.

“I am upset with Mark for the simple fact that we’ve talked about this many times and it’s not emotional,” Wilder told Yahoo.

“It is not an emotional thing, it’s a principal thing. We’ve talked about this situation many, many years before this even happened. 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.

“I understand he was looking out for me and trying to do what he felt was right, but this is my life and my career and he has to accept my wishes.”

Wilder was also critical of referee Kenny Bayless who he claimed allowed Fury to hit him to the back of his head.

“The referee told me specifically that if I hit him in the back of the head or hit him on the break, he’d disqualify me,” he added.

“But I guess that was only directed toward me, because he allowed Fury to do those things. That’s the one thing that bothered me of everything.”

    Deontay Wilder is not a wise person if he sacks the man that saves his life. I understand Wilder wants to appear tough to us. But that can only be done when you’re alive. I heard the fiancee want him to activate the rematch clause. Well good luck to both of you. The man that damaged you on the ring in seven rounds, will kill you if he add two or three more rounds to the bout. My counsel to you my brother (Wilder), swallow your pride and accept the defeat. I will not also encourage that you go on with the rematch clause activation as given by your girlfriend. If you have written your will and her name appears in it, that may account for her counsel.

      @Chidiomini  Wilder is being childish. He is still heaping curses on his head if he sacks the coach who saved his life. Take pride out of this. The coach is bound by ethics. Wilder claimed to be a warriors, but real warriors from Africa, where he comes from respect their mentors, accept defeats and return stronger to take their crown. This coach would be snatched up by other pugilists. 

      From the way things look, Fury may get that second round knockout after all.

      Haha @ Chidiomimi,you are right in your analysis,i think the trainer did what was right as we was getting killed so throwing in the towel may have saved a life who knows.
      No excuses,Deontay Wilder is a proud man he has blamed the refree,his trainer and even said he was crocked going into that fight.So many excuses just proves he can’t accept the fact someone is better.He should accept defeat take it in the chin and move on.
      Clearly Fury is a better pugilist and he displayed his dominance in the two bout.If i were Wilder i won’t go for a trilogy because he could get killed in the ring by someone who is a better boxer.
