Wilder: A lot of Guys Still Doing Drugs, They're The Real Murderers

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has continued to lash out at the run of drug cheats in the sport of boxing.

Wilder has had three different fights fall apart, after opponents tested positive for banned substances.

Wilder's opponent on Saturday night, Tyson Fury, tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone in early 2015 and was penalized with a backdated two-year ban last December. Fury blamed the test result on food contamination.

Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) will defend his title against Fury at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The fight will headline a Showtime Pay-Per-View event.

“They’re the real murderers. When you put something into your body that allows it to ­enhance something it doesn’t normally do, then you’ll hurt somebody. What you should all be doing is criticising them, not criticising someone who’s got natural power and who does things naturally," Wilder told The Mirror.

“How can a guy who cheats get more praise than me, a man who knocks guys out? When he fights, it’s the biggest fight in the world — they forget about all the other things that ­occurred beforehand.”

Wilder's last opponent, Luis Ortiz, failed two separate drug tests in the past. Their initial fight date from last year was postponed after Ortiz's medication for his high blood pressure - rendered a positive test as the meds contained a banned substance.

The fight got pushed back to this past March, which saw Wilder recover from a disastrous seventh round to score a knockout over Ortiz in the tenth.

“Look at Ortiz. In my mind, I was fighting a ­machine. That’s what I had in my head," Wilder said.

“There are a hell of a lot of guys still doing drugs. But, because the heavyweight division is so short, there are not enough ­fighters out there. You have to take what you can because boxing is a small window. I trust in myself, I do it right and I stick with that.”
