He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder 40-0-1 (39) will defend his crown against mandatory contender Dominic Breazeale 20-1 (18) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on May 18 live on Showtime.

The pair came face-to-face at a press conference to announce the event on Tuesday.

“It’s always great to get a mandatory out of the way. They’re like flies buzzing in my ear. I just want to get them out of the way so I can do great things for the heavyweight division,” Wilder said.

The 33-year-old ‘Bronze Bomber’ insisted he is still interested in facing unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua 22-0 (21) who will face Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller 23-0-1 (20) at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1, exactly two weeks after Wilder faces Breazeale in the same city.

“I want one champion, one face, one name, but you need a lot of cooperation to make that happen… Every man I’ve faced, they’ve landed on the canvas,” Wilder continued. “I’m going to continue to do that on May 18… Enjoy this one, because it’s going to be a massacre. May 18 will be a beautiful day for me and a beautiful day to see what I’m planning to do for the sport of boxing.”

Breazeale said he is looking forward to shutting Wilder up.

“I’m sick of seeing this guy walking around with his belt. I’m going to put him down. People are going to be rising to their feet when I knock him down,” Breazeale said.

“Deontay does nothing right in the ring. He looks like a circus-act. All he does is talk. But there’s nothing he can say on May 18. Deontay loves to hear his own voice. All he does is talk and talk.

“It’s time to get in the ring. Nobody can get in there and save him. It’s just me and him. Leather on leather. We’ll see who lands first. Hopefully he gets off the canvas.”
