On Tuesday, WBC mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale and Deontay Wilder addressed the press at Barclays Center, two months prior to their battle for the title.
Breazeale, who has his first world title shot since losing to Anthony Joshua in 2017, knows the importance of this opportunity. Not only does he have the chance to win a world title under a huge spotlight, but also looks to gain a measure of revenge against Wilder after a hotel room brawl in 2017.
“How can someone with so little boxing skills carry the heavyweight championship for so long,” Brezeale told the press on Tuesday.
“I’m gonna be right down the center, I’m going to give him what he’s looking for. He’s gonna feel my right hand, and I’ll probably feel his.. But when I hit him, he’s going down.”
Breazeale feels refreshed and ready as he prepares with new trainer Virgil Hunter for the May 18th battle at Barclays.
“This fight is the biggest fight of my life,” Breazeale told FIGHT SPORTS.
“Every fight you have is the biggest fight of your life, and you prepare that way. Seeing the WBC title is on the line and gives you more energy heading into camp…. Whatever you put into boxing is what you get out of it… In the boxing game, the man who waits, the man who is patient is the one, he gets everything he needs.”
