Deontay Wilder 'Could Have Brain Damage' After Tyson Fury Fight, Says Former Co-Trainer Mark Breland
Deontay Wilder might be suffering from a "brain issue" after his brutal beating at the hands of Tyson Fury last year, according to former co-trainer Mark Breland.
Wilder was outclassed by Fury and was floored twice before Breland threw in the towel in the seventh round of the WBC title fight.
The 'Bronze Bomber' has fired off various excuses to explain why he lost the WBC championship, including his 40-pound extravagant ring-walk outfit draining him of energy.
And Wilder's conspiracy theories have also led to unsubstantiated cheating claims against Fury, as well as accusing Breland of spiking his drink ahead of the fight.
Breland, 57, was later axed from Wilder's camp for his decision to throw in the towel.
However, Wilder's former trainer has questioned the extent of the former WBC champ's ear injuries in the Fury rematch.

"At that fight, just as many others, we had no cutman because Deontay won't need it," Breland told World Boxing News.
"So, I'm not a doctor, but I know blood coming out of your ears and dazed eyes could be a brain issue."
Wilder, who hasn't fought since the Fury defeat, has criticised Breland after the American boxing trainer suggested that his career was 'over.'
Breland has staunchly defended his position to throw in the towel as Wilder sustained devastating punishment during Fury's masterclass performance.
He has since reiterated that he made the right call, saying that he "decided to stop the fight, and I'd do it all again."
Breland explained: "Power comes from your legs, and his legs were gone! So, I decided to stop the fight, and I'd do it all again.
"I have a son Deontay's age. I'm not looking to see him go out on his shield.
"I hope we all stay safe. There are so many bigger issues in the world!"
