Breazeale Thinks He Will Retire Wilder

Dominic Breazeale hopes to retire Deontay Wilder on Saturday night inside the Barclays Center.

A personal issues between Breazeale and Wilder unfolds on Showtime on May 18th, as Wilder looks to retain his WBC world heavyweight title and unbeaten record.

Breazeale, who has won three straight following a loss to Anthony Joshua in 2016, feels he has what it takes to not only beat Wilder, but drive him into retirement.

“I think he finds it humbling and I think it ends his career, it retires him,” Breazeale exclusively told Sky Sports. “A guy like Wilder, the surrounding that he has, he’s not used to being down in the dumps and being a depressed individual.

“I think it cripples him, it sends him into some type of a depression and he never comes back to fight again.”

“He talks the talk, he tries to get you flustered so he can get on his high horse and build up his confidence,” said Breazeale of Wilder who has knocked out all but one opponent in his pro career.

“I’m the wrong guy for that. I played quarterback for way too long and looked across the line at some of the biggest, baddest guys on the planet. For me it’s in one ear and out the other, I’m just going to smile in his face.”

Breazeale added: “Hands down without a doubt. A win for myself is a win for the world.

“Nobody no longer wants to see Deontay Wilder as WBC heavyweight champion.
