  • welcome in Andre Ward, who is in the bubble in Las Vegas to weigh in on the happenings of the day.

  • As I talked about in the last segment, Mark Breeland made his first public comments about Deontay Wilder, saying he was done the wild.

  • And then Wilder was done and that Wilder then responded, What is your reaction to what that went down between the two?

  • Well, I mean first and foremost, it's unfortunate, you know, you you hate to see a team like that in a group like that.

  • That's, you know, been through the lean years and the tough times make it to the mountaintop for for for a long time and then have this kind of falling out after a loss.

  • But, you know, Max, thes kind of things, you know, happen all the time after a loss, especially a bad loss, especially when a ah prizefighter takes his first law.

  • Somebody has to be the blame.

  • And I've spoken out about this, you know, since February.

  • Since you know Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fault that ultimately somebody was gonna have to take the blame.

  • Didn't know it was gonna be Mark Breeland, But that way we're going to see this kind of behavior from Deontay Wilder because you've seen a guy who's been built up is being invincible, and you know how it is in the sport of boxing.

  • Punchers have a delicate psyche sometimes, and when that punch doesn't work, and then in turn, they get knocked out.

  • Things are shattered, things fall apart and, unfortunately, Mark Breeland, who I believe is a great coach.

  • But an even better person is getting thrown under the bus.

  • I don't agree with it.

  • Um, there's a time in a place to take the high road and let people talk and not answer.

  • And then there's a time to stand up for yourself and push back.

  • And I'm glad Mark Breeland is speaking out.

  • You know, Deontay Wilder is clearly going into ego protection here, and I have so much respect for Deontay, who picked the game up very late and reached the heights he did.

  • And let's keep in mind he thought the best heavyweight in the world and gave up what, £40.50 pounds to the best heavyweight in the world who's been boxing since he was a little kid.

  • But his ego is part of what makes him this great fighter, right?

  • Like whatever you want to say about Deontay.

  • Oh, his boxing skills or this or that.

  • He has figured out a way to win, even against dangerous fighters like Luis Ortiz.

  • He gets that right hand home, so it's understandable that his ego is under attack.

  • Now he's built.

  • He's believes that he can beat anybody.

  • And when he doesn't, he looks for excuses.

  • There's something wrong with the gloves.

  • There's something wrong with my trainer, But in this case Andre, it seems like he was hurt by some of the things that Breeland said.

  • Like like he tried to take the high road in a way but just couldn't bring himself to do it, because his feelings were generally genuinely hurt by what Breeland had to say.

  • Listen, I agree.

  • I respect Deontay Wilder for for, you know, having a late start in the game.

  • And you know, a lot of times heavyweights can can do that where it's harder for lower way fighters and not even just that, but just being willing to take on the next best guy in the division and the toughest guys in the division.

  • And that's something that the sport of boxing is sorely missing.

  • His guys who are willing to knock on the door of the other top guy in the division.

  • Wilder's Check that box.

  • Um, I'm not sure, though, why he's shocked or surprised that that Breeland is fighting back and sticking up for himself.

  • I mean, Breeland is, you know, Ah, former fighter himself, and he may be older and and not competing as a professional prizefighter.

  • But he still got that fight in him.

  • And you can Onley take so much as a man and the types of things that Deontay Wilder has said about Mark Breeland.

  • I mean, you know, it could be a career ender if Mark Breeland doesn't speak up and say what he said.

  • So I'm shocked that that, you know, Deontay Wilder is shocked like, why are you surprised?

  • I mean, I saw a quote where he said, you know, where is all of this coming from?

  • It's coming because of your comments is coming because of your accusations that have not been proven right.

  • These are just things that have been thrown out there, and he's saying that I know this happened and he's given all these, you know, these polarizing accusations without any tangible proof.

  • I don't respect that.

  • I can't respect that.

  • And once again, I'm standing behind Mark Berlin.

  • We got a lot of topics to hit.

  • I just want to say before we move on that Mark Breeland was such an amateur star, he turned pro on the same Cardinal's main event.

  • Fighters.

  • Purnell Whitaker, Meldrick Taylor, Evander Holyfield.

  • All those guys.

  • Guess who the main event was?

  • Mark Breeland.

  • He was the number one star coming out of the amateurs off that entire group.

  • A lot of rumors that Ryan Garcia will be fighting Manny Pacquiao.

  • At first, they said, It's an exhibition now.

  • It seems like Ryan Garcia when he heard that backlashes like, Oh, time out, no exhibition.

  • I want to fight this dude, What are your thoughts?

  • I don't like it, and I've said this from the very beginning and I don't understand it, you know, like like what's the game plan here, right?

  • Like Manny Pacquiao is to weigh classes above Ryan Garcia, Manny Pacquiao is still an active fighter like he's not on the, you know, the Floyd Mayweather tour, where he's done fighting top level competition, and now he's fighting these exhibitions and just making money and having fun.

  • That's not what Manny Pacquiao.

  • So what does Manny Pacquiao get out of facing Orion?

  • Garcia?

  • But the burden, I think, lays more on the Garcia side because you have a young, talented fighter who could be a star in the sport.

  • Why would you risk him going in there and looking bad, potentially getting hit with a Manny Pacquiao left hand that could that could hurt his confidence?

  • Knock him out, make him look bad?

  • What is the plan if your Oscar Dela Hoya if your team Garcia I don't see it that the road to Manny Pacquiao makes zero sense to me, especially when Ryan Garcia is on the Internet almost daily, taking up all sorts of band with calling out the other 135 pounders.

  • Ryan's gotta either back that up or get on a different plan where he can start moving toward facing some of those top guys.

  • But Manny Pacquiao is not the answer.

  • I hear you, Andre.

  • Only thing I'll say is Manny Pacquiao is the biggest.

  • Paid a lot of stars, but Manny Pacquiao is the biggest payday and he's a prizefighter.

  • He's going for the biggest game I want go real quick.

  • I need I need to ask you about you just real quick.

  • All money ain't good money.

  • Just put it like that.
