Eddie Hearn claims Deontay Wilder has "lost his mind" following the Bronze Bomber's latest wild rant.
The boxing promoter was responding to Wilder's scathing put down of his former coach Mark Breland.
Breland threw in the towel in the seventh round of Wilder's rematch with Tyson Fury, a year ago, handing the Gyspy King the victory as well as the WBC heavyweight title.
His decision to end the contest early earned Breland an immediate dismissal from Wilder who clearly believed the fight wasn't over.
Earlier this month, Breland came out firing claiming Wilder is a one-trick pony whose career is "finished".
Wilder responded days later in a scathing rant.
"It's all making sense now," he said. "He's been envying me, he's been jealous. Now all this s*** is truly coming out.
"You can't break a king. When you're a king, you're a king. A king knows how to get back up and continue to lead because he understands that he has people waiting on you to, 'Get up king and continue to lead us.' That's what it is, I'm a king.
"You want to break your silence to the UK media [and say] 'Somebody else poured the water.' Nah, you did that s***. This is the end of my career? Man, this is only the beginning of greatness. But for you, it is the end."
Matchroom director Hearn, who is trying to negotiate two fights between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, claimed Wilder has "lost his mind" in response to the rant.
"Go and listen to that interview from Deontay Wilder last night," he told IFL TV. "He’s completely lost his mind, completely lost his mind.
"When you start talking about yourself in the third person, ‘Kings, let me tell you what kings do.’
"What are you talking about? Kings? ‘Yeah kings, because I’m a king.’
"You’re not king. You got beat. You could become king, but you’re not at the moment."
Hearn, however, did back Wilder to make a comeback and believes former AJ opponent Charles Martin would be a good match.
"I really wanna see Wilder back, he’s great for boxing, and so’s Andy Ruiz," he said.
"It’s a good fight, Charles Martin can fight.
"I know AJ cleaned him out in two rounds but that was a great performance.
"Charles Martin can fight. He was a good fighter then and he’s a good fighter now.
"Charles Martin might beat Deontay Wilder."
