Deontay Wilder open to UFC switch but fears he would KILL opponent if given the chance – The Sun

DEONTAY WILDER has admitted he is open to switching to UFC but fears he would KILL an opponent if given the chance.

The American boxer, 34, claims his mix of speed and power would be too much for anyone once he had them on the ground.

Wilder will face Tyson Fury in the ring on February 22 in their eagerly-anticipated rematch.

But the Bronze Bomber is already looking to the future in a different sport, much like Fury – who has already fought in WWE and has suggested he may do so in UFC.

Wilder told ThaBoxingVoice: “I only have six years and theoretically speaking anything can happen in that time-frame.

“I’ve spoken out about that before, of course. For me I’ll fight you in my sport and I’ll come to your sport and do it too.

“I feel MMA, they allow you to get on top of your opponent and bash his face in with velocity and speed coming downwards.

“Four-ounce gloves, I already talk about getting people out of the ring, but that would definitely be the sport where I show it man.

“It’s just different rules, different things, I’m built with a set of skills, I have a lot of intellect and a lot of knowledge of combat, period."

Wilder continued: “So I see all the MMA guys always come to boxing because in boxing you have to stand on your feet, you have to be a motherf***ing man for 36 minutes.

“But I wouldn’t mind going into his world as well too. One for one. May the best man win.

“You know, all this is fantasy talk. I don’t think anything nothing will every come to fruition, I’m just too dangerous of a man in any type of combat sports.

“I really would end a life because I have the power to, and that’s just the damn truth.”
