Deaontay Wilder part way with Mark Breland

Deontay Wilder has made a huge change in his training camp ahead of his potential trilogy bout with the WBC Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury. After keeping his silence for over 8 months now, with no update about the preparation or the lead-up of the fight, Deontay Wilder announced that he has parted ways with co-trainer Mark Breland, the same trainer who threw the towel during Wilder vs Fury II ahead of the trilogy bout. The scheduled trilogy bout is expected to take place sometime in December, with Tyson Fury stating that he will make his return to the ring in 2020.

Earlier, Deontay Wilder had expressed his disappointment at the corner stoppage and now he has parted ways with his trainer. Mark Breland stopped the fight in early February this year in the seventh round of the rematch, after barrage of punches from Fury near the post. After reports emerged that things aren’t too well between Deontay Wilder and Mark Breland, there were rumors that Breland could be sacked after his decision. However, Wilder would reveal a week later that his team would retain Mark Breland despite the controversy.

On Friday, Finkel told ESPN that Breland “will not be part of the team for the next fight.” Finken continued, “I think things will switch around with the team that is there, with Malik being in more of a role, and there’s not much more to it,” Finkel said.

“I just wish my corner would’ve let me go out on my shield, I’m a warrior. But he did what he did, there are no excuses.” Wilder had said in the interview.

Earlier, Tyson Fury had parted ways with his previous trainer ahead of the rematch in February which brought out a even sharper and much more aggressive Fury.  It will exciting to see the kind of change a new trainer can bring to Wilder’s camp ahead of the trilogy bout.

Can Deontay Wilder beat Tyson Fury in the trilogy bout?

There is a reason to believe that Deontay Wilder could upset Tyson Fury in the rematch. Boxing has often been ruled by knockout artist, and with Wilder only learning and getting better with each passing day, his knockout power could give him an edge over Fury. Like it always has, if Wilder can work on his footwork and come out more calculated in the trilogy bout, Wilder could triumph over Fury.
