Wilder On Why He Talks Trash

Deontay Wilder believes you don’t need to play nice with others to be successful, and being brash is all apart of his plan.

In report from Boxing Scene, Wilder is looking to expand his brand and secure a unification fight with Anthony Joshua.

In an interview with Showtime about his upcoming March 3rd fight against Luis Ortiz, Wilder explained that he feels people need to understand who the heavyweight champion truly is.

“People need to know who the heavyweight champion of the world is,” Wilder said. “America’s got a bad man. We got an ass-whooper right here in America. I think it’s important people understand that and people should know who that is. And, you know, for that reason, that’s why I do the things I do. That’s why I’m so competitive. That’s why I speak the way I speak.

The Alabama native also told Showtime that he is patterning himself after one of the greatest of all time.

“Look at Ali – people hated him,” Wilder said. “They said he was a big mouth, that he ran his mouth too much. But he proved himself many a times. And that’s the things I wanna do. I wanna speak what I say I’m gonna do, and you can watch me work.”
