Deontay Wilder left Mark Breland “locked outside of his dressing room and in tears” after feeling indignant about his decision to throw in the towel in the seventh round against Tyson Fury.
Wilder was battered from pillar to post when Fury stripped him of his WBC heavyweight title in Las Vegas last weekend and inflicted his first defeat in a professional ring.
The Brit had dropped Wilder twice and got into trouble again in the seventh before Breland threw in the towel – a decision that subsequently cost him his job.

And now it is claimed that Breland, who has been training Wilder since transferring to the pro ranks in 2008, was denied entry to the American dressing room after the fight with Fury.
“Mark Breland did the right thing, I support Mark Breland, a wonderful person,” said former British hunter Spencer Fearon PepTalkUK.
“Mark Breland was crying outside the dressing room, did you know that? “He was crying because that man said he couldn’t get into the dressing room.

MARK BRELAND FACTFILE
– Breland won a gold medal at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles
– He is a two-time welterweight WBA world champion
– The American ended his professional career with a record of 35 wins, 3 defeats and 1 draw
– He has been working with Deontay Wilder since becoming a professional in 2008 and helping him guide the WBC heavyweight world title
“That is your hunter, you have built your own personal relationship, you have been with this man from the beginning and they say to you:” No, you cannot get into the dressing room “.
“See how these guys are misled and perverted?” And it’s not getting any better.
“If Deontay Wilder does not apologize to Mark Breland, the same thing happens again and it gets worse.”
Many felt that Breland acted in the interest of Wilder’s safety and saved him from sending further punishment with the WBC champion on uncertain legs.
Wilder’s head coach Jay Deas, however, criticized his colleague after the fight by revealing that he didn’t want him to throw in the towel.
34-year-old Wilder is expected to exercise his rematch clause for a triptych against Fury, and has already indicated that Breland will not be in his corner for that fight.
“I’m angry with Mark for the simple fact that we’ve talked about this many times and it’s not emotional,” he said this week.
“I said as a warrior, as a champion, as a leader, as a ruler, I want to go on my shield. When I talk about going inside and killing a man, I respect the same way. I adhere to the same principle of receiving.
“So I told my team never, never regardless of what it would look like, to throw in the towel because I am a special species. I had five rounds left. Whatever it looked like, I was still fighting. “
