Deontay Wilder has emphatically turned down Floyd Mayweather's offer to train him, claiming the retired boxing great was only after publicity.
Mayweather offered Wilder the opportunity to work with him earlier this year, vowing that he would get him back to winning ways after his brutal defeat at the hands of Tyson Fury.
Wilder, whose has been with head trainer Jay Deas since turning professional in 2008, was due to fight Fury for a third time at the backend of this year but those plans were abandoned after they failed to reach an agreement before his rematch clause expired.
