Deontay Wilder Declines Floyd Mayweather’s Offer To Train Him
Deontay Wilder isn’t interested in bringing Floyd Mayweather along for his training camp.
Wilder has suddenly become vocal after being silent throughout the situation with his trilogy fight against Tyson Fury. “The Gypsy King’s” team claims that the rematch clause has expired. As a result, Fury is now looking to fight either Agit Kabayel or Carlos Takam on December 5 in London.
Wilder has broken his silence with cheating accusations towards Fury. “The Bronze Bomber” also believes Fury is ducking a trilogy fight.
Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather has expressed his belief that he can up the technical skills of Wilder. “Money” has said he’s willing to train with Wilder.
Appearing on Barbershop Conversations, Wilder declined Mayweather’s offer (via Boxing Social).
“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.”
It’s not the first time Wilder has been at odds with Mayweather. Back in 2019, “The Bronze Bomber” said he felt Mayweather never passed the torch to him as boxing’s next top African American star.
