  • Heavyweight champ Wilder apologizes after decking TV mascot

A statement read: 'Deontay Wilder has issued an apology to the man inside the mascot costume he punched while appearing on an ESPN show.

The blow knocked the sombrero-wearing mascot to the ground, although ESPN said reports the man inside the costume suffered a broken jaw were incorrect.

Wilder, 32, has now taken to Instagram to apologize for the incident - while dismissing claims circulating on the internet that he had not known there was a person inside the costume.

The boxer attempted to set things straight in a later Instagram post, also apologising to the mascot over the unfortunate mishap. I sincerely apologise to the fearless man that was injured (if this is true). "I have the up most high respect for him, his participation, willingness and courage".

"I sincerely apologize to the fearless man that was injured (if this is true)", Wilder wrote on Instagram.

Either way, I would say decking a mascot as hard as you can on live telly is an iffy choice at best. After December 1, I would be glad to talk to him, or [his father] Barry [Hearn], or both.

His next opponent Fury, at least, is expected to present a far stiffer challenge in Los Angeles' Staples Centre.

Wilder faces off against former world champion Fury in a highly-anticipated match-up in Las Vegas.
