Wilder vs Breazeale : Deontay Wilder is spitting venom. He is being invaded, the streets of New York abuzz with a world heavyweight champion from afar. He is feeling the heat. Wilder has never been so dangerous.
How to watch Wilder vs Breazeale
Prelim fights will stream live on YouTube at 6:30 pm ET, and the main card goes live in the US at 9:00 pm ET on Showtime.
His alter-ego of the ‘Bronze Bomber’ can be utterly terrifying and shocking. The things he says, the glare in his eye, his threatening demeanour. It is personal with Dominic Breazeale, but Wilder’s evolution into his other persona has been exacerbated by the looming arrival of Anthony Joshua.
Wilder vs Breazeale One of the biggest nights of boxing so far this year is finally upon us, with three major events taking place in locations from Stevenage to Brooklyn. WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder puts his title on the line in New York against Dominic Breazeale, while Billy Joe Saunders aims to become a two-weight world champion in Stevenage when he battles Shefat Ifufi for the vacant WBO super middleweight crown.
Meanwhile, in Glasgow, hugely exciting British prospect Josh Taylor vies for his first world title against Ivan Baranchyk, while Naoya Inoue, one of the greatest fighters on the planet, makes his British debut against Emmanuel Rodriguez.
Deontay Wilder and Dominic Breazeale don’t like each other. It stems from a physical encounter between the two fighters (or, at least, the two fighters’ camps) in an Alabama hotel lobby in 2017, and since then, Breazeale has tried to convince Wilder to meet him in the ring.
It’ll finally happen Saturday on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET. And the feud has turned nasty, especially when Wilder basically made a death threat toward Breazeale, saying “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?” Wilder vs Breazeale
