Deontay Wilder’s trainer Jay Deas says he didn’t want to throw the towel at Tyson Fury, suggesting there was a confusion in his corner.
After a deepening in the third and fifth round, Wilder’s co-trainer Mark Breland chose to give up the fight in the seventh round by throwing in the towel.
The bronze bomber was clearly astonished at the decision and afterwards said he wanted to “go on my shield,” and his trainer Deas insisted that Wilder continue despite the mistreatment he received.

Wilder was fuming at the decision after being told by the referee that the fight was over
Deontay Wilder’s trainer Jay Deas later admitted that he did not want the towel thrown in
“I am the head coach of the team, but we do things a little differently, 99% of the time the head coach is also the man who is the head coach in the corner,” said Deas.
“We are a bit more like an American football team where the head coach does not necessarily mention the matches – you have an offensive and defensive co-coordinator.
“What happened between the rounds was that Mark said something about throwing in the towel and I said to him,” Don’t do that “, I didn’t think he should do that.
“Then the fight went on a little longer, and then I saw the towel go in, so I didn’t talk to Mark about it, but we’ll talk about it and find out what exactly happened there.”
“I didn’t think he should have done that [thrown in the towel]. Deontay is the kind of man who goes on his shield and he will tell you right away – don’t throw in the towel.
“In fact, in the dressing room when Tyson wrapped his hands in one of the earlier fights that they show on the screen in the dressing room, they had a man who was stopped, we thought,” Stop the fight, stop the fight. “

“And just as the referee stopped the fight and the towel came in, Tyson looked at his people and said,” Never. ” And I said, yes, that’s the same kind of guy as Deontay, he doesn’t want that.
“You must always remember that Deontay is a frightening puncher, so that’s always a difficult thing because he always has [ability] to land a big shot and turn things around.
“That’s what happened there, but Deontay is doing well, he is coming back, he will only get better, but congratulations to Tyson and his team, a class act all the way and we are very happy to be a part of the show with him. ”
