Deontay Wilder aims to dig sacked ex-coach Mark Breland and makes an impression on him before explaining how Malik Scott is helping him prepare to defeat Tyson Fury


Deontay Wilder clearly still has a lot of resentment towards his former coach Mark Breland.

The Olympic gold medalist and former full-fledged world champion was unceremoniously sacked by the heavyweight last year following a bizarre string of events.

In October, Wilder accused Tyson Fury of cheating in their revenge by posting a video and statement on social media, then following up with various interviews.

In the video, Wilder alleged that the Briton tampered with his gloves to put his fist in the wrong position.

He added that he believed Fury had a hard object hidden in his gloves to deal extra damage.

The American went on to claim that his water had been fortified with muscle relaxers before the fight, potentially by his own co-trainer Breland.

He also pushed new allegations of disloyalty against Breland – who threw in the towel to end the fight – and fired him accordingly.

Wilder replaced Breland with Malik Scott – who is now head coach. Jay Deas was previously head coach and remains an assistant.

“It’s just amazing to have Malik in the camp with me. We’re just getting the best of me, ”Wilder told 78SPORTSTV.

“Before, having my other coach, he only worked on the double.

“All he wanted was one-two, one-two, one-two. We never did anything to the body or anything like that.

“We never insisted on anything else.”

At this point, Wilder gave a harsh impression of Breland: “He always said, ‘That’s all you need, one-two, one-two.’

“But with Malik, he brings it all out of me.

“It’s not that I didn’t have the skills and the ability to do certain things, I just didn’t have anyone to get that out of me.”
