Watch as Deontay Wilder and Dominic Breazeale address the press two days before they clash for the WBC world heavyweight championship from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York live at 1PM ET.
Both men seem ready for war on May 18th, especially the champion, Wilder, who hopes the fellow former football player turned Olympian, brings his best.
“I hope he brings the best he can bring,” Wilder told reporters on Thursday. “This is more than just a boxing match. I’m passionate about what I do. This has been a long time coming for me and Dominic. He asked for this, and he shall receive.”
“I don’t believe Breazeale when he speaks. I’ve been in this game for a very long time. Someone like him is not going to beat me. The closest he’s going to get to this belt is in his dreams.”
For Breazeale, who would look stone faced and emotionless while the champion spoke, is truly excited to close the mouth and potentially end the career of Deontay Wilder.
“Victory for me on Saturday is everything,” Breazeale explained. “Wilder doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into. He’s in for a fight. He better be confident in his abilities, because Saturday night, he’s going to be in the toughest fight of his life.”
“I’m going to beat Deontay so bad that he’s not going to ever want to lace up the gloves again. Sports are 80% mental. When I’m done with him, the mental aspect is going to be beat out of him.”
