Deontay Wilder aims death threat at Dominic Breazeale
Deontay Wilder has threatened to kill Dominic Breazeale in their heavyweight world title clash.
Wilder puts his belt on the line against his fellow American in New York on Saturday night.
And he insists he has no qualms about ending not only his challenger's career, but his life as well.
"This is the only sport in the world where you can kill a man and get paid for it at the same time, so why not use my right to do so?” he said.
“Dominic Breazeale asked for this. I didn't ask for this, he asked for me.
"If it comes, it comes. This is a brutal sport.
"This is not a gentleman’s sport, we don’t ask to hit each other in the face, but we do anyway.
"You can ask any doctor around the world and he’ll tell you the head is not meant to be hit.
"Anyone can go. And on this particular time, we’ve got real bad blood against each other.
"I can’t wait. Like I said, he’s like a fly in my ear. I can’t wait to get him out.
"It’s going to be in dramatic fashion, in a fashion nobody has ever seen. His life is on the line, and I do mean his life.
"I'm still trying to get me a body on my record."
Wilder has repeatedly insisted he would have no qualms about ending an opponent's life in the ring.
Anthony Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn criticised the world champion for previous comments in March.
"I just think, on comments like that, this is a sport where anything can happen and terrible things have happened in the ring," he told iFL.
"And I just think, if something bad happened, and you’ve said that, you’ll probably regret that for the rest of your life.
"Some things get said in the heat of the moment, he’s a very emotional guy Wilder – or he’s a very good actor, might be a bit of both actually.
"But for me, and this will probably sound boring, I would rather try and let this fighters inspire a generation of young people and be role models, rather than talk about opponents making funeral arrangements. I think it’s bad for the sport.
"But he’s the bad guy. He wants to try and build this fight, build the excitement. But if anything happened in the ring, and you said that, you’re going to live an unhappy life."
