Deontay Wilder left his trainer Mark Breland crying outside his dressing room following his defeat to Tyson Fury, according to promoter Spencer Fearon.
Wilder suffered the first defeat of his professional career and lost his WBC heavyweight title in Las Vegas as he was destroyed by Fury in seven rounds.
Breland, who has been training Wilder since he turned professional in 2008, was the one who opted to throw in the towel to stop the fight.
Wilder was furious with Breland’s decision and has indicated that he will drop the 56-year-old from his corner for the rematch against Fury.
The Bronze Bomber also suggested that Breland was heavily influenced by Anthony Dirrell, who is trained by Fury’s coach Javan ‘Sugar Hill’ Steward.
And British-based promoter Fearon claims Wilder banished Breland from his dressing room after the right.
‘Mark Breland did the right thing, I’m backing Mark Breland, a beautiful human being,’ Fearon told PepTalkUK.
‘Mark Breland was outside the changing room crying, did you know that?
‘He was crying because that man said he couldn’t come in the changing room.
‘That’s your fighter, you built you own personal relationship, you’ve been with this man from the get-go, and they are saying to you, ‘no, you can’t come in the changing room’.
‘You see how deluded and twisted these guys are? And it ain’t gonna get no better.
‘If Deontay Wilder doesn’t apologise to Mark Breland the same thing is going to happen again, and it’s going to be worse.’
