Wilder’s sacked coach says Bronze Bomber’s career is ‘finished’ in brutal rant
Deontay Wilder has been told his boxing career is ‘finished’ after his defeat to Tyson Fury 12 months ago.
The Bronze Bomber was stopped by Fury in the seventh round of the February 2020 bout, with the loss being Wilder's first as a professional as he also yielded his heavyweight world title.
In the fallout from the defeat, Wilder made a series of increasingly spurious claims, such as saying his water had been spiked by coach Mark Breland.
Breland was sacked after throwing in the towel during the seventh round, with Wilder close to being knocked out.
Having stayed silent since the fight and his subsequent sacking, Breland has now revealed his belief that Wilder’s career is over.
"My whole thing with Deontay is part of boxing I guess," he told the Fight Is Right podcast. "His career is done now, I'm done and he's done, I'm done with him.
"He's got a lot of power but that's all, I wish him well and that's it. He's only got his power and we'll see how far that takes him. That's all I'm going to say.”
Wilder has not been in the ring since Fury walked away from their trilogy fight, with the Englishman electing to take on Anthony Joshua instead.

Fury and Wilder were set to fight for a third time last summer but the bout was postponed due to the pandemic.
And now Fury has committed himself to taking on Joshua in the Middle East in the summer, with Wilder left plotting how to get back into the ring.
The loss to Fury was Wilder’s first in 44 fights, with the American’s former coach criticising him for his reaction to the defeat.

"I'd been working with him since he turned pro and nothing had happened until [the defeat],” Breland said.
"Some people can’t take a loss. Don't blame everybody else, go back and think about yourself."
