Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has sent a warning to Dominic Breazeale, he will have “no remorse” if he kills Dominic Breazeale in the ring.
Things have become very personal between Wilder and Breazeale. Back in February of 2017, there was an altercation between Wilder and Breazeale, who had just won his fight against Izuagbe Ugonoh by knockout on the undercard of Wilder vs. Gerald Washington.
Breazeale states (allegedly) that Wilder and his team attacked him in front of his wife at the Westin Birmingham hotel. This supposedly happened after Breazeale had a confrontation with Wilder’s younger brother who was at ringside during Wilder’s fight.
Wilder’s team also claims that Breazeale made remarks about Wilder’s disabled daughter.
Wilder recently said that he would not be affected in any way, should Breazeale die from injuries due to their upcoming match .
“Not one bit of remorse because this is boxing. This is what we do. This is what we sign up for” Wilder said to The Daily Mail.
“People on the outside will never understand this sport. They will never understand what we have to go through, break our body down. We are fighting for our lives in the ring anyway. Anything can happen. Your head is not meant to be hit in the first place. One little tap can end it all.”
“You talk about me killing the guy? If it happens, it happens. When you are dealing with a situation like this and it’s personal, I don’t mean well for him, nor do he mean well for me. So I speak truth. That’s why people love me till this day. Because I speak facts, I speak truth. I’m a realist and I speak how it is. I’m going to handle my business in the ring accordingly, I promise you that.”
“I’m not taking Breazeale easy. I’m taking him as if he were a champion. That’s how serious I’m taking this. He’s going to be the guinea pig in this experiment. I don’t like him. At all. What he’s done is unacceptable and I can’t wait for this fight. I mean business. Trust me.”
Both fighters have promised to deliver brutal knockouts when they meet in the ring on May 18th at the Barclays Center.
Breazeale, the winner of his last three fights, stopped Izuagbe Ugonoh, Eric Molina and Carlos Negron. Breazeale’s victory over Molina earned him the WBC mandatory spot to face Wilder.
