DILLIAN WHYTE has hit out at rival Deontay Wilder who axed trainer Mark Breland ahead of his trilogy bout against Tyson Fury.

The Bronze Bomber has parted ways with the 57-year-old – who has been a member of his corner for his entire 12-year professional career.

Breland had been working with the Bronze Bomber since he turned professional in 2008

Wilder, 34, was left incensed with the 1984 Olympic gold medallist after he threw in the towel in his defeat against the Gypsy King in February.

And with Wilder set to fight Fury for a third time at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the American has decided to mix things up as he bids to become a two-time heavyweight champion.

Whyte has been left shocked by the announcement, as he came to the defence of Breland, 57.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the Body Snatcher said: “I think it’s the worst mistake he’s (Wilder) ever made.

“Because Mark Breland is the only person in his team that actually was a boxer and actually was a world champion. He was the only person that didn’t care about money or fame.

“Someone who was actually from an emotional point, someone who understands, thinking about his health and did the right thing by throwing the towel in, because he could have got seriously hurt.

“He was getting hit with punches that weren’t knocking him out, they were concussing him.

“Mark Breland knows what it’s like, because Mark Breland has been in the same position Wilder was in. He’s someone that cares about the athlete and the boxing side of things.

“Not just ‘Bomb Squad’, nonsense. He doesn’t care about that. He’s the only one in the team, you don’t see him running around and shouting and screaming. He’s just a little quiet guy, does his job.

“Deontay Wilder is an idiot, he clearly can’t see it. Good luck to him, it’s his team, he can do whatever he wants.

“But I think it’s a bad mistake. Mark Breland is the only one that knows boxing in his team.”

One person that could become part of Wilder’s corner is Floyd Mayweather, with the boxing legend offering to train his compatriot.

He said: “Tyson Fury‘s solid, he’s got skills.

“Deontay Wilder’s got bombs, but we can make his skills a lot better. I’m here to help fighters, even Wilder.

“I’m here, all he’s gotta do is let me know what he wanna do and we can make it happen.”
