Breazeale on Wilder: He Wanted a Street Fight, Scared My Family

Heavyweight contender Dominic Breazeale (19-1, 17 KOs) wants revenge on WBC world champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs).

On Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, Breazeale and Wilder saw action on the same card for the second time this year.

Breazeale stopped Eric Molina after eight rounds in a WBC eliminator, while Wilder headlined the card and knocked out mandatory challenger Bermane Stiverne in the first round.


The two big heavyweights were involved is a physical altercation back in February, when they were both featured on the same card in Wilder's hometown of Alabama.

As previously reported on, there was some type of confrontation at the arena between Breazeale and Wilder's brother. And then Wilder himself got into it with Breazeale at a nearby hotel in Birmingham. Breazeale made allegations that Wilder attacked him at the hotel, and then he actually filed a lawsuit over the incident in a California court - seeking compensation from Wilder. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed.

According to Breazeale's version of the story, the confrontation was unprovoked. He claims to have been an innocent target of Wilder and his team members.

“There was an altercation in Alabama, yes. I was in the hotel lobby [after my fight] minding my own business, I was with my wife and kids, and Wilder came in and, as he does, tried to take over the place. He tried to confront me – he wanted to fight right there and then – and he pretty much saw to it that things escalated and got out of hand," Breazeale told Boxing News.

"His people started pushing and shoving, not only me but also my wife and kids, and punches were thrown. I want so much to make him pay for the mental trauma he caused my family and friends. As I say, I so much want a piece of him in the ring.”

DB is tough, but so slow and upright he is tailor made for windmills.

Wilder has said it's an option if the AJ fight doesn't happen, what makes me laugh is Breazeale who AJ battered for 7 rounds is a viable option, but Whyte who wobbled AJ and won rounds is not a viable…

Wilder has yet to beat a legit heavyweight in his 34 fights. Stiverne is a bum as are the rest of Wilder's foes. Wilder could be the dumbest man on earth also. Wilder is goofy and a dim bulb. Joshua…

[QUOTE=whoseyourdaddy;18189131]Wilder will KO AJ within 8 Rounds.[/QUOTE] I tend to agree mate, although I think it's a matter of who gets over the nerves quicker and lands that first clean shot. I can see a AJ uppercut ending the fight…
