WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has amassed a stunning professional record of 40-0. Undefeated, Wilder has earned a knockout victory in 39 of his 40 fights. Now the boxer is making headlines for a recent controversial statement concerning his knockout power.
Speaking on the Breakfast Club radio show, Wilder admitted that he wants to kill an opponent inside the ring.
“I want a body on my record, I want one.” Wilder stated.
“That’s the Bronze Bomber, he want [a body].” Wilder later continued. “I always tell people, when I’m in the ring, like I am the Bronze Bomber. With him, it’s so crazy, when I’m in the Bronze Bomber, I don’t really care.
“Everything about me changes. I don’t get nervous, I don’t get scared, I don’t get butterflies, I don’t have no feeling towards the man I’m fit to fight.
“I come here for one thing – to knock you out and go back home. The power that I have, it’s easy to be able to do. I thought I had one time with [Artur] Szpilka because he wasn’t breathing when he hit the canvas. Somebody is going to go.”
