Barclays Center, New York 

Ring Walk expected 4am BST on Sunday morning 

‘This is the only sport where you can kill a man and get paid for it at the same time,’ said Wilder. ‘It’s legal.

‘[Breazeale’s] life is on the line for this fight and I do mean his life. I am still trying to get me a body on my record.’ 

It is not the first time Wilder has openly spoken about ending someone’s life as part of his job.

His previous comments have been slammed by a series of well-known faces in the sport, with Tony Bellew previously labelling him ‘a disgrace’ and a ‘senseless idiot’ after similar comments last March.

He has even toyed with the idea while previously speaking about Breazeale, saying he sould make ‘funeral arrangements’, quotes that caused promoter Eddie Hearn to also call out the American.

Asked what Saturday’s opponent would think of his latest comments, Wilder said: ‘Dominic Breazeale asked for this. I didn’t go seek him. He [sought] me. So if it comes it comes. This is a brutal sport. This is not a gentleman 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 will tell you, your head is not meant to be hit.

‘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?’
