Deontay Wilder has claimed he would kill an opponent if he hung up the 10oz gloves of boxing and stepped into the world of UFC.
The Bronze Bomber is no stranger to claiming that he possesses the capacity, power and willingness to kill a man in the ring.
Now, though, he genuinely believes that a swift change in shape of arena from a square to an Octagon would deliver that promise.
The fighter has always flirted with the idea of a crossover and has once again talked about the damage he could cause in the brutal world of UFC.
Asked about crossing over to the world of mixed martial arts, the Bronze Bomber told YouTube channel ThaBoxingVoice: “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 that in 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.”
Wilder’s punching power has disposed of fighters with the security of 10z of padding behind him. Losing 6oz’s of that protection behind his infamous right hand would be extremely dangerous for any fighter brave enough to go toe-to-toe with the big hitter.
The man with the biggest punch in the heavyweight division of boxing continued: “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.
“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****** man for 36 minutes.
“But I wouldn't mind going into his world as well too. One for one. May the best man win.”
Admitting that this might just be all talk, though, Wilder claimed that he is too dangerous for the sport and the chances of him actually making the transfer are slim.
“But you know, all this is fantasy talk. I don't think anything nothing will ever 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.
Wilder’s record of 41 knockouts from a possible 43 fights speaks for itself. He has a chance to make that 42 when he faces Tyson Fury in just over a month’s time.News Now - Sport News
