DEONTAY WILDER has revealed Mark Breland – the trainer he's said to have sacked – is still with him despite reports claiming he'd been fired for throwing in the towel against Tyson Fury.
The Bronze Bomber, 34, criticised Breland for handing the British star the fight, despite being absolutely dominated in Los Angeles.
Wilder also claimed he heavy costume he wore for the ring walk for his defeat.
The American is said to have fired Breland, but Wilder has now said he's still part of his team as he prepares for the final fight of the Fury trilogy.
Wilder revealed: "I'm a warrior. I feel the same way I felt on fight night. If I go out, I want to go out on my shield.
"I understand that my corner has my best interest at heart. Mark Breland is still a part of team Wilder.
"Our team looks forward to preparing for the rematch."
WAR JUST BEGUN
Meanwhile, Wilder has revealed the "war has just begun" in an Instagram video directed at Fury after deciding to take up the 30-day rematch clause.
The Bronze Bomber roared: "Hello my people, my Bomb Squad army, my Bomb Squad nation, to all my loved ones around the world, I just want to let you know I am here.
"Your king is here. And we ain’t going nowhere, for the war has just begun.
"I will rise again. I am strong. I am a king, you can’t take my pride.
"I am a warrior. I am a king that will never give up. I’m a king that will fight to the death.
"And if anyone don’t understand that, don’t understand what it is to go to war, don’t understand what it is to fight, we will rise again.
"We will regain the title. I will be back. We will hold our heads up high. Your king is in great spirit.
"We will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and regain the title. I’ll see you in a few months, for the war has just begun. All my love to all my people."
