Deontay Wilder Talking A Lot, Says He Wants To Commit ‘Legal Homicide’ On Tyson Fury

Deontay Wilder is taking his WBC welterweight rematch with Tyson Fury seriously. Maybe a little too seriously.

“My mind is very violent,’ Wilder told Premier Boxing on Instagram Live. “We built a whole facility to commit a legal homicide, and that’s just what it is. My mind is very violent at this moment in time.”

Legal homicide? Does such a thing exist?

Anyway, Wilder is clearly fired up after the reigning champion Fury won their previous bout back in February. The next one is set for July 24 in Las Vegas.

“When you’re contemplating and premediating about harming a man, and when you see that person, what you’ve been thinking and what you have been feeling will come out,” Wilder said.

“The only thing about it is, at that point in time, I have to wait until I get in the ring to really release because I can’t do it on the outside. It’d be defeating the purpose.

“The baby’s got to eat, but when I do get in the ring — this is what I love about it — I’m able to release everything I’ve been feeling, everything I’ve been thinking, and get paid to do it.”

Say this much for Wilder, it’s pretty clear he intends to be even more wild than the last time.
