Deontay Wilder aims dig at sacked ex-trainer Mark Breland and does impression of him before explaining how Malik Scott is helping him prepare to defeat Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder clearly still holds plenty of resentment towards his former trainer Mark Breland.

The Olympic gold medallist and ex-world champion in his own right was unceremoniously sacked by the heavyweight last year following a bizarre sequence of events.

In October, Wilder accused Tyson Fury of cheating in their rematch by posting a video and statement on social media, and then following up with various interviews.

In the video, Wilder alleged the Brit tampered with his gloves to put his fist in an improper position.

He added that he believes Fury had a hard object concealed within his gloves to deal extra damage.

The American next claimed his water was spiked with muscle relaxers before the fight, potentially by his own co-trainer Breland.

He also pushed further accusations of disloyalty at Breland – who threw in the towel to end the bout – and fired him as a result.

Wilder has replaced Breland with Malik Scott – who is now head trainer. Jay Deas was previously head trainer and remains as an assistant.

“It’s just amazing to have Malik in the camp with me. We just bring the best out of me,” Wilder told 78SPORTSTV.

“Before, having my other trainer, all he worked on was the one-two.

“All he ever wanted was one-two, one-two, one-two. We never did anything to the body or nothing like that.

“We never emphasised on anything else.”

Wilder believes Breland conspired against him

At this point Wilder performed a hoarse-voiced impression of Breland: “He always said, ‘That’s all you need, one-two, one-two.’

“But with Malik, he brings everything out of me.

“It’s not that I didn’t have the skill and ability to do certain things, I just didn’t have no-one to bring that out of me.”
