DEONTAY WILDER should ‘kiss Mark Breland’s backside’ for saving him from Tyson Fury, according to Frank Warren.
The American’s reign as WBC heavyweight champion came to an emphatic end last February at the hands of The Gypsy King.
And the one-sided nature of the fight led to a stream of excuses from the Bronze Bomber blaming heavy ring-walk outfits.

Wilder also insisted dodgy gloves allowed Fury to cut his ears with his fingernails – despite zero evidence.
But speaking a year on from the fight, Warren claimed the Brit just cemented his reputation as the best heavyweight in the world.
He told the Lockdown: “What a fabulous night and what a great job Tyson did, I mean he was phenomenal wasn’t he?
“Again he went into the fight for some reason with the majority of people as the underdog but he went in there and absolutely destroyed Deontay Wilder.
“Deontay Wilder will never be the same fighter after that and he did a fabulous job and put himself as the number one heavyweight in the world.”

Frank Warren on Deontay Wilder
Wilder ditched his trainer Mark Breland after the 57-year-old threw in the towel to save him from brain damage.
The Bronze Bomber has since accused him of spiking his drink before the fight – an allegation which has been vehemently denied.
Breland, who had 39 fights as a pro winning 35, described that as a ‘ludicrous allegation’ in a lengthy statement posted on Instagram.
The legendary trainer – who has been backed by Eddie Hearn – sensationally labelled the deposed heavyweight champ ‘untrainable’.
And Warren has since thrown his support behind Breland as well by claiming that Wilder was saved from a savage beating against Fury.
He said: “I’m a bit disappointed cause like I said before I quite liked Deontay.
“Leading up to the fight him and Tyson were getting at it but I had quite a bit of respect for him but since the fight he’s gone down in my estimation with the rubbish he’s come out with.
“If anything he should go and kiss Mark Breland’s backside cause Mark saved him from getting a terrible belting.”
