WBC heavyweight champion of the world is in the hot waters again as he has said that he wants to kill his challenger Dominic Breazeale inside the ring on May 18 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
This is not the first time, he has made this comment. Last year also he had said that he wants a body on his record and that drew extreme criticism from boxing and sports fans around the world.

“Dominic asked for this, I didn’t go seek him, he seeked me. So if it comes, it comes.
“This is a brutal sport, I keep saying that. This is not a gentleman’s sport, we don’t ask to hit each other in the face but we do anyway. If you ask any doctor in the world, he’ll tell you your head is not meant to be hit.
“Anybody can go and on this particular time, we have bad blood against each other. 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 last fought against Tyson Fury the last December and the fight ended in a draw. On the other hand, Breazeale is coming off of a knockout victory over Carlos Negron.
