Yes Tyson did. I remember hin saying he was going to eat Lennox Lewis children and telling several fighters that he was going to make them hiz bitch. I dont know if I am desensitized to it or whatever but what Wilder has said didnt bother me. I mean its not like they are about to play a tennis match or something.

He constantly says it though and with there being a few high profile deaths and near deaths in recent years in the sport, he’s not doing a great job promoting the sport. 

He’s a fuckin dope.

Promoting the sport aspect I can kind of see. Still not liking that the WBC feels the need to review it or whatever.

I didn't even know the WBC was reviewing it, I don't believe it should be censored. I was saying it's a dumb remark to make and his team should of told him after the first time he said it that that's not a smart move, there are other ways to promote a fight

Well the fight is a dumb fight anyway. Brazelle sucks. Just big. I bet wilder still looks sloppy and uncoordinated taking him out in it though.

Very excited to see Inoue/Rodriguez but the fight I’m most looking forward to is Josh Taylor vs Ivan Baranchyk. I love Josh Taylor he’s one of my 4 or 5 favorite boxers at the moment.

This weekend on DAZN?

Yes

Wilder can be a really strange guy. This fight will probably end fairly early. I’d be surprised if it went past 5. To be frank,Breazeale is just not a very good fighter.

I just roll my eyes at Wilder saying that because you know he doesnt really mean it anyway. He just tries way too hard with his persona and usually ends up looking/sounding like a complete goof. Nobody was laughing at Tyson when he said he was going to fuck you or eat your kids, because it wasnt an act.

Naoya Inoue is all you should be focusing on this week. He’s actually starting to get the shine he deserves as boxing’s number 1 P4P fighter in the world. 

Been watching this kid since 2014. 

What channel/app will it be on? I’m a big fan of inoue 

DAZN this Saturday afternoon from Scotland. 

Should be beautiful violence

Wilder is really starting to go off the deep end playing the angry dude from the hood. But it doesn't really come across as genuine. Not that he doesn't have some of it in him. But he has really been ramping it up lately.

Even Breazeale said "I don't have an urban dictionary and have no idea what you were saying" lol.

I think Wilder is feeling a lot of pressure to get ratings so acting more crazy and saying more outlandish things he thinks might help. And it might.

I usually ignore boorishness in boxing, but Wilder is getting lots of comments here, so what he is saying is getting him the attention that he wants. Look for more of it.

I’m in full agreement. I can’t believe he’s still running with that. There has to be someone on his team telling him to knock it off

You’re right. It’s outlandish statements for attention. Pressure to be a ‘star’. However keep knocking the fuck out of credible opponents and that will get the job done 

lands one of those rights Saturday night like he did against fury and he’d get the same attention these comments are getting, but in a positive manner

If Wilder is classy and respectful post-fight like Floyd used to be after his pre-fight antics this will all be forgotten.

The 2 WBSS semifinal fights should be great. But right now they're showing some undercard trash.

There's also a KSW card on DAZN now. Mostly mediocre fighters but the main event (Askham vs. Materla) is pretty solid.

I think the main 2 WBSS fights are about to start now.
