Trainer: ‘It’s Worrying To See Where Deontay Wilder Is Heading’
One veteran boxing trainer and manager believes Deontay Wilder is going down a “scary” path.
Wilder suffered the first loss of his pro boxing career back in February. “The Bronze Bomber” lost the WBC Heavyweight Title when he was stopped by Tyson Fury in the seventh round via TKO. Since that time, he has fired trainer Mark Breland and accused Fury of loading his gloves. He’s even gone as far as to accuse Breland of tainting his water.
Dave Coldwell spoke to The Daily Mail and he expressed concern over Wilder’s recent rants since he was defeated by Fury.
“Every excuse in the book and under the sun has been used by Deontay Wilder to try and explain his defeat against Tyson Fury. I get why people have poked fun at his expense because his reasonings are elaborate and far fetched, but I have actually been quite disturbed and concerned by what Wilder has come out with.
“He needs someone to put their arm around him because he strikes me as someone who is really struggling. For some people, a loss can completely ruin them because they can’t handle it mentally. I’ve seen it take people down a very scary path and it’s worrying to see where Wilder is heading.”
Wilder has threatened legal action in an attempt to get a third fight with Fury. “The Gypsy King” claimed to be moving on from “The Bronze Bomber.” Fury’s team said Wilder’s rematch clause expired, something the former WBC titleholder denies. Time will tell if he gets the trilogy fight.
