Potential Punishments - Consequences for Wilder vs Breazeale Brawl

What Happens Next:


·    Video has already been released by TMZ. However this is blurry & hard to see anything really.

·    Since this occurred in a public venue more videos will be released if either party takes this to court or potentially presses charges due to the ALLEGATIONS.

·    Both teams are launching allegations at each other and the next week should produce some interesting reading to how far this develops.

·    If something sinister has happened and criminal charges are pursued this can lead to boxers losing their licences. (Doubt this happens though, but let’s see).


Disclaimer : Boxing Kingdom has no views on this issue. We are quoting statements from both teams. All of this is ‘ALLEGED’.

Team Wilder vs Team Breazeale : The Brawl : The Fallout

Team Wilder vs Team Breazeale : The Brawl : The Fallout

The weekend was entertaining for the Heavyweight division. Breazeale showed tremendous character to pull out a win against Ugonoh & Wilder does what he normally does, shows flaws before he pulls out his nuclear weapon knock out punch.

Things got interesting the day after. Here is a timeline of what has ALLEGEDLY happened:

First a statement was released by Dominic Breazeale on ‘Social Media’. It included:

“First off I want to take the time to thank God that both me and my opponent came out of the fight unharmed and safe last night. Secondly, I want to address the fact that Deontay Wilder & a mob of about 20 people unprovokedly attacked my team and my family in the lobby last night. My coach and I were blindsided by sucker punches and my team was assaulted as well as in front of my wife and kids. This cowardly attack has no place in boxing and believe me will not go unpunished”.

Shortly afterwards a 2nd Statement is released from Cutman Carlos (Team Breazeale) which can be seen here”:

“Team Dominic Breazeale got attacked & assaulted by Deontay Wilder, friends & a brother. As Dominic was in the lobby of the hotel. Wilder & friends rolled in with Wilder as the leader confronting Breazeale and causing a rumble in the hotel lobby. Breazeale getting hit, coach Robles getting hit, cutman Carlos getting knocked down by the mob, all in front of Dominic’s wife & kids. It was a violent attack by Deontay & his thug friends. The police had to escort all of team Breazeale out of the hotel to a safe location for safety.  An unprovoked act by Wilder & his friends that should not go unpunished. The worst I’ve seen in boxing. Such a cowardly act by a group of thug acting individuals. Unbelievable. Truly a cowardly act, at least 20-25 individuals against 4 guys and a women with her children”.

As with any story there are 2 sides. In boxing usually 9 sides to a story exist.

Here is Wilder with his right of reply. He starts by talking about his win and we begin quoting when he talks about this issue.

I am disappointed that attention has been diverted away from my title defense and my conduct has come into question, it is important that I set the record straight with regards to the incident that took place in the hotel last night with Breazeale. We all know there are two sides to every story and the story the world has been told thus far is wrong. Breazeale confronted my brother in the arena and told him he would kill my entire family. There were many witnesses to this. My brother was the one provoked. I was very upset when I heard about that incident. THIS IS MY ONLY BROTHER AND I AM HIS KEEPER. I did want to confront Breazeale, man to man and face to face, but just because we are fighters doesn’t mean we always have to act with violence and my only intention was to speak with him. I'm sure many of you have seen me on many occasions and those that know me knows I don't travel with a Big Entourage In Fact, I don't believe in it. I was accused of having a MOP OF 20 People and that's just ridiculous. I approached Breazeale in the lobby Alone as my Team stood back and immediately a member of his team grabbed me. My brother was punched, people close to Breazeale yelled cuss words at me, and I lost my cool. My only concern was the safety of my family and my only brother. First, I did NOT throw a punch. Second, I did NOT make a comment about Breazeale’s children. Anything else you have heard is a lie because no matter how heated or protective I may be, I’m not the kind of man to go after someone’s kids. I understand how this incident looks given that I am heavyweight champion, but I want to ensure people I did not act in the manner Breazeale has claimed and the videos are clear about that. The statements from his team were untrue and a defamation of my character. I will go to great lengths to prove that".
