What have they said?

Breazeale: "I think he finds it humbling and I think it ends his career, it retires him.

"A guy like Wilder, the surrounding that he has, he’s not used to being down in the dumps and being a depressed individual.

"I think it cripples him, it sends him into some type of a depression and he never comes back to fight again. ‘He’s a disgrace for not only American boxing, for heavyweight boxing in general."

Wilder: "Mandatories [challengers] are like flies, and sometimes you gotta be the fly swatter.
"On May 18, that bug will be done. Finished. Capiche?"
