Wilder (40-0-1, 39 knockouts) is coming off a draw against Tyson Fury and said he has no intentions of letting Breazeale (20-1, 18 knockouts) survive the scheduled 12 rounds.
“Man, this fight, with the bad blood we got, I don’t see this fight going long,’’ Wilder said. “I’ll be surprised if this fight goes past three rounds.
The bad blood stems from an incident Feb. 27, 2017, when Wilder fought Gerald Washington in Birmingham, Alabama, and Breazeale was on the undercard. That night, Wilder scored a technical knockout against Washington in the fifth round and Breazeale, who knocked out Izu Ugonoh in his undercard bout, had been rooting for Washington.
“That’s OK,’’ Wilder said. “Everybody has their own people that are their friends, so I understand.’’
What is not OK, according to Wilder, is Breazeale made threatening remarks to Wilder’s brother later that night at a Birmingham hotel.
“He told my brother, and it was confirmed by other people that was around, that Breazeale made the statement that ‘I’ll kill you. If my family wasn’t here, I’d kill you and your entire family.’ ” Wilder said. “And I don’t take threats lightly.’’
So, Wilder said, he later tracked down Breazeale.
“I just put my hand in Breazeale’s face and I told him, ‘Never come to my city threatening my family ever. Don’t ever do that,’ ” Wilder said. “And it escalated from there. His coach started pushing and shoving and that’s when my team came in. They entered the building and then it was a whole scuffle.

“When it became a whole scuffle, not only was Breazeale running around, but his wife was running around as well, like she was Xena the Warrior Princess, screaming and hollering and doing what she’s doing.’’
Wilder said he’s angriest about Breazeale claiming Wilder endangered Breazeale’s wife and children.
“The thing about it, in America if you want to get people on your side, add women and children in there,” he said. “And that’s what he’s tried to (do).
“Breazeale is an opportunist. He’s one of these guys that will waste water or ice in your establishment or business and slip on it on purpose just to sue you. That’s what type of person he is. For that reason, I got bad blood.
“Hands down without a doubt. A win for myself is a win for the world,” he said. “Nobody no longer wants to see Deontay Wilder as WBC heavyweight champion.”
