Wilder: To Possess Power That Can Kill a Man is Scary Feeling

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) will be aiming to score another knockout victory this coming Saturday night.

In what is being billed as his toughest fight to date, Wilder will defend his title against unbeaten challenger Tyson Fury at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Showtime Pay-Per-View will televise the card.

Wilder has knocked out every opponent that ever faced him in the ring.

Bermane Stiverne was able to last the full twelve round distance with Wilder in January of 2015.

But when they met in their rematch, which took place last fall, Wilder scored a brutal first round knockout.

Back in March, Wilder derailed the very dangerous Luis Ortiz - handing the Cuban puncher his first defeat, by knockout, after dropping the Cuban puncher three times on route to a tenth round stoppage.

If Wilder gets Fury in any trouble, he will immediately go the finish.

“When my mind transforms it is a scary feeling because it is a source of power that takes over and allows me to feel like I know I can kill a man,” Wilder said to The Sun.

“People have a problem with me saying it because I can do so. People have a problem, because I do possess the power to do it. When I have a feeling come over me, I don’t know the strength of my own power. It’s unexplainable. The week of the fight is when I start to transform, it just takes hold, especially the day of the fight. I’m no longer myself, nothing is funny, everything is serious.

“A fighter is not going to stay in the ring with me if I don’t want them to. I have a killer instinct that is crazy. If you are hurt and wounded, you are going to get out of there. I don’t get paid for overtime, so why sit around? Why wait? I like to get a knockout, the heavyweight division is based on power. I like to give the people what they want to see, a devastating knockout, and I deliver that each and every time.”

**** me, this man thinks he's Ivan Drago, only with a see-saw conscience. "I need a body on my record", then "I'm scared that I may actually kill someone". Stick to one story, sunshine. If you realize that your initial…
