So Deontay Wilder has finally broken silence.

In doing so, he has accused Mark Breland of being 'disloyal' and also insinuated that Mark poisoned his water with a muscle relaxant.
He has also accused Tyson Fury of being a thief and a cheater, saying that he had an egg-weight in his glove and he was also positioning his fist in the wrist of his glove.
Because of this accusation against Fury, he is implicating Jay Deas (who witnessed Fury's hand wraps and gloves going on. He is also indirectly implicating the WBC and the Nevada Athletic commission, as they were also present in both dressing rooms at the time.

Now at this point I would normally lambast Wilder and laugh at his expense. But on this occasion I am genuinely concerned for his mental health and wellbeing. Someone needs to help him.

It's interesting that he mentions about Joshua offering more money. He's more or less admitted to ducking Joshua.

that's strange though hsf because I am sure I saw frank warren say in an interview before that joashua ducked wilder, also that he saw the contract offer that wilders team sent to joshuas.
the interview was around the time just before wilder/ fury 2.

Here is all the information regarding the Joshua vs Wilder saga.

The first offer came from the Joshua camp in 2016 - it was an offer to spar before Joshua's first title defense. Naturally rejected as both were champions, Wilder even said 'champs don't spar champs'.

The first offer to actually fight also came from Matchroom after the Carlos Takam fight (originally meant to be Pulev) . This was a low ball offer and was rightly rejected. From what I remember, it was roughly an 80/ 20 split in favour of Joshua.

The second offer came after the Povetkin fight, which was a guaranteed $10 million plus 30% of the American PPV.
This would have been Wilders biggest pay day by a minimum of $8 million. Wilder rejected it.

The 3rd and final offer came a few days later from Matchroom again, with a guaranteed $15 million and 50% of the American PPV. This would have been Wilders biggest payday - even eclipsing what he made vs Fury. Wilder rejected it and went on to fight Ortiz for a second time for $2.4 million.

The $50 million offer which came from Wilders camp was bogus and a publicity stunt and here is why.
Eddie Hearn asked to see the money in an escrow account, they refused.
Eddie Hearn asked for a contract, they refused to send one and asked for a 'public acceptance' of the offer, with no guarantee of funds, venue, dates, PPV percentage or a network to air the fight.

Additionally, there are very strong rumours that the money was real, but it was coming from BT Sport. This would cause massive contract issues with Joshua who is obviously with Sky.

To sum it up, Wilder has basically used Joshua's name to build his own profile. While at the same time completely avoiding a fight with him.
