Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale Preview on Showtime!
Recently, Showtime Boxing released a teaser clip for their next All Access: Deontay Wilder vs Dominic Breazeale. The full episode will air on Showtime May 10 at 10:00 PM ET. The purpose of the show is to drum upon maximum interest in the May 18, bad blood title fight between WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder (40-0-1, 39 KO’s) and Dominic “Trouble” Breazeale (20-1, 18 KO’s). The showdown will take place at the Brooklyn’s Barclays Center and will air live on FOX.
When looking over the catalog of the All Access series, the episodes generally are entertaining and informative. However, there should be a bit more interest surrounding this next installment. The source of this perceived increase in curiosity stems from Wilder’s and Breazeale’s mutual disdain for one another.
Among boxing circles, its common knowledge that the “Bronze Bomber”, “Trouble”, along with several members of their teams and family were involved in a physical altercation last year. Each side of the confrontation give radically different accounts on how and why the skirmish began.
Why the incident took place is moot and irrelevant at this point. How this animosity and thirst for revenge is fueling the fighters and their camps is of great interest to fight fans. Wilder v Breazeale is the living, breathing definition of a grudge match. Unless the All Access crew completely drops the ball, the next episode should make for fascinating television.
As for the preview itself, it does not reveal much in terms of what the full episode will focus on. The brief clip is various shots of Wilder talking about his desire to be the best and some knockout highlights. Be sure to watch the full episode when it premieres on May 10.
