Heavyweight contender Dominic Breazeale claims that WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder with his people attacked him and his team at the arena's lobby:
Gerald Washington commented on his technical knockout loss to WBC heavyweight champion Deonytay Wilder.
“He’s a good boxer. He was staying safe, I was staying safe. I got a little impatient, but I’ll be back. [Deontay Wilder] is a good guy and a gentleman, a heck of a champion, and I hope he gets all the belts. I’ll go back to the drawing board and hopefully catch him again later. The best have gone down, all the great champions. It’s what you do after that–keep your head up, keep moving forward and learn from this process.” - said Gerald Washington on the post-fight press conference.
Eddie Hearn, promoter of WBC #4 ranked heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte said he would like to put Whyte against another super exciting heavyweight Dominic Breazeale, who knocked out Izuagbe Ugonoh in epic fight yesterday, but thinks that Brazeale will face WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder next:
Чемпион мира по версии WBC в супертяжелом весе американец Деонтей Уайлдер заявил, что в бою чемпиона мира по версии IBF британца Энтони Джошуа с экс-лидером супертяжелого дивизиона украинцем Владимиром Кличко он будет болеть за Джошуа, поскольку считает, что публике будет гораздо интереснее его бой с британцем, чем поединок с Кличко.
WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder said he wants to get a unification fight later this year against New Zealand's Joseph Parker, who was ringside to scout Wilder in his bout against Gerald Washington.
"As I've been saying, I'm looking to unify the division," Wilder said. "I think it's critical to have one fighter and one champion, and that's Deontay Wilder. Let's hope Joseph Parker is ready for me because I'm definitely ready for him."
