Mark Breland is one renowned boxing trainer. A few months back, the veteran broke into the news headlines when his prime fighter, Deontay Wilder, sacked him.

The pair parted their ways after the Alabama native suffered a brutal T/KO loss to Tyson Fury in 2020. Right from the first second of this clash, nothing went right for Wilder as ‘The Gypsy King’ terrified him, landing constant shots by walking him down.

 

Citing the entire situation, Jermall Charlo cleared in his above statement that there’s no need for the ex-WBC heavyweight champ to dive into this matter further for any reason.
