We're often used to boxers saying anything and everything to promote an upcoming fight to boost bums on seats and pay-per view numbers but WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder took it to a whole new level when speaking to reporters in the lead up to his mandatory title defence against Dominic Breazeale.

“This is the only sport where you can kill a man and get paid for it at the same time. It’s legal. So why not use my right to do so?” Wilder said.

'I am still trying to get me a body on my record...Dominic Breazeale asked for this … this is not a gentlemanly sport.”

Wilder is more than a little ticked off over the failed talks to fight fellow unbeaten fighters Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, which ultimately led to giving a Breazeale his mandatory title shot in the division. Wilder and Breazeale have history, with both fighters exchanging pleasantries in a hotel lobby in Alabama in 2017 following a card where both men posted knockout victories.

Breazeale said he wasn't fazed by threats made by Wilder but also highlighted how such comments weren't needed.

“Crazy shenanigans,” is how Breazeale described Wilder's words.

“We’re not in a word battle. We’re in a physical fight. We’ll lace them up and throw hands. He can say all that he wants to say. He’s a mental case. He has to hype himself up. He’s realising I’m not going to react to his words … it’s very uncivilised, not in my character and not right.”

Climate, not Greens, the threat: Di Natale

Climate, not Greens, the threat: Di Natale Greens Leader Richard Di Natale says climate change is the biggest threat to Australia, not his party, as the prime minister suggests. Greens Leader Richard Di Natale has hit back at Scott Morrison for suggesting his party is a greater threat to Australia than Clive Palmer. The prime minister restated his view that the Greens are a greater threat to economic and national security than Mr Palmer's United Australia Party and Pauline Hanson's One Nation in a front page article in The Weekend Australian. He also accused Labor of moving closer to the minor party's "extreme views".

Chief of general staff, Sir Nick Carter, will say Britain needs to keep up with adversaries to avoid being exposed to unorthodox, hybrid warfare.

The pair went head-to-head at a press conference to promote the fight yesterday where it was confirmed that Gethin’ s British strap would now be on the line instead of the vacant WBA Intercontinental Lightweight Title . On Saturday, the ‘Quiet Man’ watched The Saddlers slip to a 1-0


Wilder (40-0-1, 39 knockouts) was left frustrated by not having a rematch on the table with Fury and had to settle for a match-up with Breazeale (20-1, 18 KOs).

Wilder and Fury both agreed to get back into the ring after their Dec. 1 draw at Staples Center which saw Wilder knock down the British fighter twice — including in the 12th round.

Fury will now fight Tom Schwarz on June 15 on ESPN after signing on with Bob Arum's Top Rank in a co-promotional deal.

Wilder believes the amount of pain he inflicted upon Fury scared him and he's heard how Fury's family have urged the heavyweight to not rush back to get in the ring with the US fighter.

“Getting dropped to the ground, getting knocked from your senses … I understand [reluctance] because this is a dangerous sport and you have to be willing to risk your life in there,” Wilder said.

“If he felt like he beat me 10 of the 12 rounds like they’ve said, then why wouldn’t the person take the rematch knowing, ‘I beat him by a wide margin, it wasn’t even a close fight?’ The only one talking about a rematch is me, because I know the truth.

“That’s the best Fury you’ll ever see. And that wasn’t the half of Deontay Wilder. It was just about me trying to knock him out. All eyes were on me, and I tried to do something I’m used to doing, but I wasn’t patient.”

The fight against Breazeale is Wilder's ninth defence of his WBC title and he expects to better Joshua’s seventh-round technical knockout defeat of Breazeale in 2016.

“I love getting mandatories out of the way because they [say], ‘I want it, I want it,’ but be careful what you wish for. You ask and you shall receive,” Wilder said. “I want to thank him for coming to see my city and causing the chaos he did. It relit my fire. I’ve never wanted to hurt a guy this bad since [the first title] fight in 2015.”

Boxing fans are hoping the best heavyweights can get in the ring, most notably Wilder and Joshua. There have been rumours that Wilder’s manager, Al Haymon, has got other fights lined up after the clash with Breazeale, with Adam Kownack and a rematch with Cuba’s Luis Ortiz on the cards if they can't secure fights with Fury or Joshua.

“I promise the fight will happen. With Joshua, no one’s going to know, and once it goes quiet and we settle our differences behind closed doors and do what we’ve got to do, it’s going to happen,” Wilder said. “We don’t want things in the public so much.

“There’s so much anticipation. It’s itching people. With patience comes time. Let us work.”
