Sacked Deontay Wilder trainer left in tears after Tyson Fury defeat

Mark Breland, the man who threw in the towel last weekend, was left in tears following Deontay Wilder’s loss to Tyson Fury with the former champion banning the trainer from his dressing room after the fight.

Breland decided the fight should be stopped in the seventh round with the Bronze Bomber having taken a battering from Fury.

The Gypsy King had twice put Wilder on the canvas and was well in control of the fight before Breland flung the towel in.

It was a decision that drew criticism from Wilder, who insisted “I want to go out on my shield”.

But Breland’s decision has been backed by promoter Spencer Fearon, who has revealed the trainer was left devastated by events after the fight at the MGM Grand.

“Mark Breland did the right thing, I'm backing Mark Breland, a beautiful human being," Fearon said to 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."

Wilder was left disappointed after the decision from Breland to stop the fight.

The former champion said: “I am upset with Mark for the simple fact that we’ve talked about this many times and it’s not emotional.

“It is not an emotional thing, it’s a principle 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 principle of receiving.

“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.”
