Breazeale: After Watching His Last Fight - Wilder is Nothing Special

2012 United States Olympian Dominic Breazeale (19-1, 17 KOs) is not very impressed with WBC champion Deontay Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KOs).

Breazeale is the WBCs mandatory challenger to Wilder's world title.

On Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Breazeale will face Puerto Rican Olympian Carlos Negron in a Fox Sports televised fight from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Breazeale is waiting patiently to get his crack at Wilder.

Back on December 1, Wilder barely escaped defeat with a controversial twelve round split draw against lineal champion Tyson Fury.

Breazeale felt Wilder looked terrible in the fight and he has no idea how the dangerous puncher has been a world champion since January of 2015.

"I knew Wilder had a couple of tricks in his bag, but seeing him fight against Tyson Fury, he’s nothing special, man," Breazeale told Sporting News.

"I call him an 'A-B-C fighter.' All he does is throw the one-two. When it doesn’t work, he tries to throw it again. You saw in the Fury fight, where he didn't make the adjustments. He was lunging with the right hand, he was out of position; when he does finally get a guy hurt, he looks wild like he’s in a street fight, so his boxing skills, it's hard for me to believe he’s been a champ for this long.

"At this point, you can’t change it. If you don't got it by now, you’re not going to change it. I don't think he has the ability to change it."

Breazeale was impressed with Fury's defensive skills, but felt the British boxer did not land enough big punches.

"Tyson didn’t sit down on his punches, he didn't drop any big bombs nor did he ever really hurt Wilder," Breazeale said.

Big power punches is exactly what Breazeale has in his arsenal.

"Oh, definitely. I got bad intentions with both hands," Breazeale said. "I throw the left hook, the right hand, whatever it may be. Anytime I land the leather, somebody’s going to feel it. They’re going to know."

Breazeale takes too many shots from average fighters. All Wilder would need is one or two for him.

All this Wilder hate. Still undefeated. Still WBC heavyweight champ of the world. And still Joshua's daddy.
