The WBC heavyweight champion has made a series of controversial statements

Back in 2017, Wilder made similar remarks about Bermane Stiverne and sparked uproar; the response has been no different this time around.

“His life is on the line for this fight… and I do mean his life,” Wilder told a group of reporters.

“I’m still trying to get me a body on my record… Dominic Breazeale asked for his. I didn’t go seek him, he seeked (sic) me. So if it comes, it comes.

“This is a brutal sport, this is not a gentleman’s sport. I keep saying this is not a gentleman’s sport, we don’t ask to hit each other in the face, but we do anyway.

“And you can ask any doctor around the world, he’ll tell you the head is not meant to be hit.

“Anybody can go and, on this particular time, we have bad blood against each other.

“This is the only sport where you can kill a man and get paid for it at the same time.

“It’s legal, so why not use my right to do so?”
