Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has reportedly broken a mascot’s jaw when he appeared on Spanish language sports show to promote his fight against Tyson Fury.
The WBC champion, who is billed to defend his belt against former world champion Fury in Los Angeles., has already apologised if he injured the mascot.
The mascot, who was wearing a sombrero and moustache, was floored by the boxer in the presence of the presenters.
“Anything headlining I didn’t know a human being was in there is just straight click-baiting,” said Wilder on Instagram.
“I sincerely apologise to the brave man that was injured (if this is true). I have the utmost respect for him, his participation, willingness and courage.
“If this (injured mascot) is true, I personally would like to invite him to my 1 December fight.”
