WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder has confirmed that there is a new addition to his existing management.

Wilder’s team around him has grown once more it has been confirmed officially today.

Boxing News and Views was sent and advised of the following statement a short time ago:

Prince Ranch Boxing (PRB) is happy to announce that they have partnered up with Pro Fighter Group (PFG), the management company that guides the career of undefeated WBC Heavyweight Champion, Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs).  PRB will work closely with PFG as Wilder takes his career to new heights.

“Deontay Wilder is one of the best heavyweight champions America has seen in decades,” said Greg Hannely, president of Prince Ranch Boxing. “Here at Prince Ranch Boxing, our goal is to associate ourselves with the best people in the sport, and the folks at Pro Fighter Group are wonderful to work with.  It’s an honor to be allied with such a tremendous fighter like Wilder”

After his stunning first round knockout against Bermane Stiverne (25-3-1, 21 KOs), Wilder was adamant about his quest to fight Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs), who holds the WBA, IBF and IBO belts, and unify the titles.

Article update:

Since been sent the initial statement, we have now been sent an update retracting it in a rather confusing situation. Here is the latest from the above company:

Prince Ranch Boxing (PRB) retracts its partnership with WBC Heavyweight Champion, Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs).  Greg Hannley, president of Prince Ranch Boxing, was mislead by an associate about working with Wilder.  Shelly Finkel, Al Haymon and Jay Deas are the only people handling Wilder’s career.
“I’m very disappointed about the deal I thought was in place regarding Deontay Wilder,” said Greg Hannely. “I entered into an agreement in good faith and apparently I was given fraudulent information by someone I thought had a legitimate percentage of Wilder’s contract.  I talked to Shelly Finkel and he let know that I was scammed by this person.  I fully retract any statement I made about working with Wilder.”
