DILLIAN WHYTE has vowed to knock Deontay Wilder spark out for the way he hung boxing hero Mark Breland out to dry.
The Bronze Bomber was bashed all around the MGM ring by Tyson Fury on February 22 before assistant coach Breland disobeyed head trainer Jay Deas and threw in the towel.
Deas raced into the post-fight press conference to blame the Olympic and two-time world champion for the stoppage and Wilder swiftly followed.
But Whyte, who spent three years chasing Wilder for his shot at the WBC title before Fury dethroned him, joined the majority of the boxing community in backing Breland.
The Body Snatcher said: “I don’t know what is left to say about Deontay Wilder. I was so disappointed with how he treated Mark Breland, he is the only man in his corner that knows boxing.
“The rest are s*** guys who call themselves trainers and advisors but they don’t know boxing.
“You need to understand the physical and psychological reasons why a fighter acts a certain way and Mark Breland has been in fights, been a world champion, lost fights and been knocked out and he knows Deontay Wilder on a personal and professional level.
“His team are all yes-men but Breland was the only one acting in a professional and compassionate manner.
“He should be getting a medal from Wilder, not belittled the way he has been, it is very disrespectful. Just on that basis I will never have any respect for Deontay Wilder again.”
The 31-year-old Brixton slugger has been the No1 contender for the WBC title since November 2017 and is now the silver and interim champ.
But he can only watch the Wilder vs Fury trilogy fight on July 18 and hope he gets his hands on the winner.
But the no-nonsense bruiser still wants to give Wilder a whack, even if Fury is victorious again, and he fancies himself to do it even quicker than the seven stanzas the Gypsy King needed.
He said: “After watching that fight I know I would stop him earlier than Tyson.
“Tyson Fury is a great technical boxer but I am more heavy-handed than him.
“If I get hold of Wilder he will be stopped on the floor, not on his feet.
“Fury hit him with enough punches to put his lights out but the full power was just not there, mine is.”
