WBC: Wilder Apologizes For “Catch A Body” Comments
Following comments made on the syndicated “The Breakfast Club,” Deontay Wilder claimed that he wanted to “have a body” on his record, he’s allegedly apologized.
“I want a body on my record. I want one. I really do,” Wilder said, in the sense of the ‘Bronze Bomber’ ring persona. “That’s the ‘Bronze Bomber’. He wants one. I always tell people that when I’m in the ring then I’m the ‘Bronze Bomber’ and with him, it’s so crazy, I don’t really care. Everything about me changes. I don’t get nervous. I don’t get scared. I don’t get butterflies. I don’t have any feeling towards the other man in the fight.”
WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman was shocked and appalled by Wilder’s comments, and said the case would be referred to the organization’s disciplinary committee.
“This is a serious report which cannot go unattended and if true goes against the WBC Boxing code of ethics,” Sulaiman said on Twitter last Friday. “It’s not acceptable and the WBC disciplinary committee will look into this delicate matter.”
Sulaiman in a new interview claimed that the situation was resolved after speaking to Wilder.
“When I say – ‘if I do this my mother is going to kill me’ – of course she isn`t going to kill me, but it`s a statement. Deontay is very sorry about how this all transpired and how it was taken and he`s going to take immediate action about that,” Sulaiman said.
