Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale: What the fighters have said
Wilder: “Mandatories are like flies, and sometimes you gotta be the fly swatter. On May 18, that bug will be done. Finished. Capiche?”
Breazeale: “I think [beating him] he finds it humbling and I think it ends his career, it retires him. I think it cripples him, it sends him into some type of a depression and he never comes back to fight again.”
