Former heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is scrubbing all the “Non-good” people in his team.
Wilder suffered the first loss of his professional career in February, when he fell to Tyson Fury at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
After suffering that defeat, Wilder explained that he finally saw the true colors of certain members of his team.
Like any fighter in Wilder’s position, he has a large entourage, but the number of people in that group will now decrease.
“I am getting rid of all the snakes in the grass. This time it has allowed me to dig into the brush and see what was going on,” Wilder said in a Premier Boxing Champions podcast.
“You can have a lot of great people around you, but you cannot control people’s envy. You think that people are happy with you but they all want what you have but they don’t want to sacrifice as much as you do. It is time to clean up any changes it’s good and beneficial,” said Deontay.
Wilder has agreed to face Fury for the third time, probably before the end of the year.
“Many people have approached, but you have to be careful because some people just want advertising. Boxing is complicated, it is a business and you have to be careful. You have to be careful with people and their intentions.
“We are going to form an excellent team with great people once everything is back to normal. The Green and Gold belt will be back in the “Bomb Squad.”
