The WBC champion has renewed his rivalry with Dominic Breazeale
Deontay Wilder has issued a brutal warning to Dominic Breazeale, and captured the attention of a disappointed Tyson Fury.
The WBC champion spoke to FightHype on Thursday about his long-standing rivalry with his next mandatory challenger and produced some startling comments regarding the heavyweight’s children.
Wilder and Breazeale infamously clashed in a hotel lobby back in 2017 having both fought on the same show earlier that night.
Breazeale recounted the altercation in a separate interview earlier this week and called on Wilder to finally meet him in the ring to settle the score as he is now the WBC mandatory challenger.
However, the 32-year-old declared he currently has other plans, as it has previously emerged that he is in negotiations for a potential bout with Tyson Fury.
“We already know what Dominic Breazeale is doing. He’s trying to talk me into fighting him, which is not working,” stated Wilder.
The heavyweight champ then shockingly added: “My mind is already made up on that Breazeale fight, and, when it do happen, Imma make sure he brings his son on the stage to look the man in the eye that’s gonna cripple his daddy.”

Shortly after the interview was published, these quotes started to do the rounds, prompting a response from Wilder’s potential next opponent, Fury.
“Saying stuff like that is out of order and sad, to involve a child,” declared the ‘Gypsy King.’
“I pray for everyone I fight to do their best and get home safely, there is too much BS like this in boxing.”
