    It's going to be okay. Sleep will slowly return to normal.

    Stay safe, wee fella.

    Exactly. He was willing to take a paycheck for doing nothing. He should shut his mouth for shame.

    Yep, they could hire Breland and then he could teach them how to box just like Deontay Wilder.

    Good points. I don't like Wilder much, but I feel like Breland is really overselling himself here.

    If he was as good a trainer as he say he is, he would have been hired by now. There is something passive aggressive about him and it's rubbing fighters the wrong way. I say this even thought I agree with him throwing in the towel in the 2nd fight.

    Mark Breland is, from all accounts, one of the nicest men in boxing. That's been attested to by dozens of people ever since the 1980s.
    Deonaty Wilder is, clearly, a moron who blames others for his own failings, takes no responsibility, is not a fully emotionally developed adult.

    Wilder is fortunate Breland hasn't sued the **** out of him.

    “We would wait for the champ for hours before he arrived at the gym, and Jay would inform us of his mood. If he had a bad day, we had to ‘be quiet’ to not be on the receiving end of ‘his wrath’, according to Jay, in an effort not to be ‘fired.’

    :lol:

    Reading that Wilder desired to be coddled doesn't really surprise me. :lol:

    The super nice guy no one else has ever wanted as a trainer.

    And still doesn't.

    He is available for hire. Where is everyone? Where are all the boxers? He's been available for two years.

    Hell, Wilder only fought twice a year. Why didn't other boxers hire him when Wilder didn't have a fight scheduled?

    All other trainers work with more than one person.

    That is one of the tamest sounding complaints I have ever heard of a top fighter in camp

    o_O

    Pick up a few books on Ali, Tyson, James Toney and Foreman and see how difficult they were during training camps on people around them.

    Hell, when Bruce Curry lost his title, he blamed his trainer and took a gun to Jesse Reid's gym and fired off rounds trying to kill him.

    Because he spiked Wilder's water.
    Must be.

    George Foreman said Dick Sadler (legendary trainer) spiked his water during the Rumble in the Jungle with Ali. Said it for decades. And Foreman fired his entire team after that loss, which included Archie Moore, Sandy Saddler and Joe Louis ... who were all "kinda" better than Mark Breland.

    Unforgiven - "Could be. He looked a bit sleepy in there. Stranger things have happened I'm sure. Foreman certainly portrays Dick Sadler as a very dubious character. You gotta love them old-timers."

    :nonono

    Breland's complaints sound like the complaints of a girlfriend. "We had to be quiet when Wilder was mad."

    The fact that no one else has ever hired that guy as a trainer even though everyone supposedly thinks he's "great" says it all.

    That's right. Foreman looked drugged. I haven't heard many attest to the integrity of Dick Sadler, unlike with Breland. So it is possible.
    But Foreman's still full of **** because he had a dozen other excuses, and blamed everything under the sun, and has since admitted he was looking for excuses.
