Former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has branded former trainer Mark Breland a ‘coward’ amid their ongoing public feud on the back of the American’s loss to Tyson Fury in 2020.

Breland, who threw in the towel during Wilder’s one-sided defeat to Fury in February, was astonishingly accused by ‘The Bronze Bomber’ of spiking his water during the Las Vegas bout. 

Breland has since refuted all allegations made against him, and broke his public silence last week to state that the American’s career at the top level is essentially over following his loss to Fury.

“Sometimes it ain’t the enemy, sometimes it’s the m*******ers that are right there,” Wilder told 78 Sports TV. “Let that coward do what he do. He’s a b**ch.

“It’s like, where is it all coming from? Is it because of where I am in life and your career was short? It’s all making sense now. He’s been envying me, he’s been jealous. Now all this s*** is truly coming out.

“You can’t break a king. When you’re a king, you’re a king. A king knows how to get back up and continue to lead. Because he understands that he has people waiting on you to, ‘Get up king and continue to lead us.’ That’s what it is, I’m a king.”
