    Default Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale 18th May 2019 Sky Sports

    Deontay Wilder will make the ninth defence of his WBC heavyweight title when he faces Dominic Breazeale at the Barclays Centre in New York.

    The 33-year-old will be hoping to return to winning ways after his controversial split decision draw against Tyson Fury last year.

    Breazeale has worked his way into a mandatory position with a three-fight winning streak since the only loss of his dominant career thus far – against unified multi-title holder Anthony Joshua back in June 2016.

    Despite fans and the boxing world calling for an undisputed match-up between Wilder and Joshua, the two fighters were unable to come to terms.

    Wilder vs Breazeale takes place at the Barclays Centre in New York City, New York on 18 May.

    For UK fight fans, it’ll be a late one. The ring walks will likely be around the 3am mark (at the earliest).

    In the United States, it’ll be shown on Showtime and in the United Kingdom, it’s live on Sky Sports. If you’re a subscriber then you get this one as part of your package deal – no extra paying! But you’ll have to stay up late.



    The WBC heavyweight title – arguably boxing’s biggest and best – is at stake.

    Wilder’s record is 41 fights, 40 wins, 39 by way of knockout and one draw. Breazeale’s is 21 fights, 20 wins, 18 by KO and one defeat to AJ.

    If both men win their fights, the obvious next one to make is Joshua vs Wilder. But as we’ve seen for the past year and a half, it won’t be made easily. Promotional wars, money and venues all come into play and it’s a difficult one to get over the line. The hunch is that it won’t be made because both Wilder and Tyson Fury have already spoken at length about having their rematch after.

    In summary, it looks like an undisputed fight will have to wait until at least 2020.

    What is the full fight schedule?

    Gary Russell Jr vs Kiko Martinez

    Juan Heraldez vs Argenis Mendez

    Deon Nicholson vs Brian Howard

    Robert Alfonso vs Iago Kiladze

    Richardson Hitchins vs tbc

    Dylan Price vs tbc

    Kenny Robles vs tbc

    Wilder to win by knockout. He needs to make a statement after his performance against Fury and with Breazeale such a defensive fighter, opportunities will be there for the Bronze Bomber to unload – and after a few clean hits the challenger will go down. I think it’ll take Wilder around 10 rounds to end this one.

    Joke of a fight and I'm still baffled why Whyte isn't in there against Wilder.
    AJ smashed him years ago ffs.

    haha I was going to post the same thing. In fairness Whyte did have his moment against AJ and has gone on a decent run on paper since. I remember Whyte vs Brezeale was talked about a while ago, that probably would have been a good competitive fight. Whyte isnt as good/improved as a lot of people seem to think imo. Hes struggles majorly at world level, and has never comfortably beaten a good fighter to my knowledge

    Whyte despite telling everyone he wants AJ, Fury and Wilder is appealing the WBC decision to make Whyte Fury's mandatory before facing the winner of Wilder/ Breazeale

    Whyte should be biting their hand off for the opportunity. Huge payday and a big chance to massively improve his standing.

    Perhaps he sees Wilder or Breazeale as easier targets OR perhaps he feels he needs a tune up.

    I like Whyte and how he's done given the pedigree of other fighters in the division but yeah that is disappointing to say the least.
