Breazeale: I Was Attacked by Wilder, Mob in Front of Wife, Kids

By Keith Idec

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Dominic Breazeale claims he, his team and his family were attacked by Deontay Wilder and his entourage in a hotel lobby following their knockout victories late Saturday night.

The incident occurred in the lobby of The Westin Birmingham, across the street from Legacy Arena. Wilder (38-0, 37 KOs), the WBC heavyweight champion, had said less than an hour earlier during a post-fight press conference he would “see” Breazeale outside the ring because Breazeale got into an altercation with Marsellos Wilder, Deontay’s younger brother, as they sat ringside at Legacy Arena for Wilder’s fifth-round knockout of Gerald Washington (18-1-1, 12 KOs).

The Birmingham Police Department were called to restore order at The Westin Birmingham and neither Deontay Wilder nor Breazeale is believed to have been arrested (https://www.boxingscene.com/wilder-breazeale-get-into-post-fight-altercation-hotel-lobby--114006). Deontay Wilder is not believed to have punched anyone during the melee, which spilled outside The Westin Birmingham before police took control of the situation.

Here is the message Breazeale posted on his Instagram and Twitter accounts Sunday morning: First off, I want to take the time to thank God that both me and my opponent came out of the fight unharmed and safe last night. Secondly, I want to address the fact that Deontay Wilder and a mob of about 20 people unprovokedly attacked my Team and my family in the lobby last night. My coach and I were blindsided by sucker punches and my team was assaulted as well in front of my wife and kids. This cowardly act has no place in boxing and believe me will not go unpunished.

Earlier Saturday night, Breazeale battled back from a fourth-round knockdown to knock out powerful Polish prospect Izu Ugonoh in the fifth round of their scheduled 10-round heavyweight fight. Breazeale (18-1, 16 KOs) knocked down Ugonoh (17-1, 14 KOs) once in the third round and twice in the fifth before their fight was stopped.
