Deontay Wilder says his “words” about killing opponents are nothing compared to the “actions” of boxers who use anabolic steroids.
Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder, the current world heavyweight champion in the World Boxing Council organization, complained that steroid use was particularly egregious in boxing because it is such a “brutal sport”. He likened steroid use to “killing a man in the ring”.
Wilder was obviously attempting to deflect attention from his stated aspiration of “trying to get a body on my record”. Wilder bragged that he was involved in a sport where he would get paid for legally killing a man. He relished his “right” to do so.
Deontay Wilder wants to kill Dominic Breazeale in the ring on May 18, 2019.
“[Dominic Breazeale’s] life is on the line for this fight, and I do mean his life,” Wilder said. “I’m still trying to get me a body on my record. 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 has denied using anabolic steroids or any other banned performance-enhancing drug. He apparently believes it is perfectly acceptable for him to kill his opponents as long as he abstains from using steroids. Of course, those boxers who use steroids and end up “killing a man in the ring” must be disgusting individuals with no morals.
Wilder dismissed his desire to kill an opponent in the ring as merely “words”. Whereas, boxers who were using steroids were actually taking “actions” towards doing the same.
Wilder’s detestable goal of killing a man is a blatant violation of the WBC code of ethics according to WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman. However, the WBC has made no effort to suspend Wilder and risk the cancellation of his scheduled fight against the man he hopes to kill (Dominic Breazeale).
Wilder is scheduled to fight Dominic Breazeale at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on May 18, 2019.
