A few weeks back, Floyd Mayweather offered his training services to Deontay Wilder after Wilder had ditched his trainer, former world champion Mark Breland. Since then, Wilder has alleged Breland had spiked his water (??) as well as throwing in the towel prematurely (???) and has publicly dismissed Mayweather’s offer of guidance.
“My thing is, every fighter I’ve fought, Floyd has bet against me. It ain’t even for me to discuss. Even with Mark [Breland], I need [a trainer], Mark ain’t on the team no more. Nobody had anything good to say about my trainers before, but all of a sudden, you need him,” Wilder told Barbershop Conversations.
“All this time, and all of a sudden now? Why? I don’t need anybody. I’ve made it all this far. Why do I need to change up anything? Of course, we need to replace, and you’re going to see what it is. But nobody has reached out to me.
“It’s publicity. When I see people do that stuff, it’s for publicity. But to the offer [from Mayweather], thank you, but no thank you. I don’t feel any love from that man. Their actions don’t show that. It’s fake love to me, but they know that themselves. They can’t look me in the eyes and tell me they care about me and want to see me do well.
“They can’t look me in the eyes and be sincere about that because I would feel them. They can’t do that because they know it’s not real. It’s not. It’s for publicity.”
Whilst it’s his prerogative as to who trains him, sacking Breland was a huge mistake and maybe turning down Mayweather’s offer was as well.
Wilder needs all the help he can get at the moment.
