Wilder is talking trash and ready for Breazeale at Barclays

NEW YORK (AP) Not to be outdone by the other heavyweight titleholder, Deontay Wilder showed he can be a champion at trash talk, too.

A month after Anthony Joshua and Jarrell Miller squared off in a nasty, expletive-infused war of words to announce their fight - Joshua owns the major belts other than the WBC, which is Wilder's - the man known as the "Bronze Bomber" and Dominic Breazeale went at it Tuesday at Barclays Center. Fans can only hope the May 18 fight as action packed.

"It's always great to get a mandatory out of the way. They're like flies buzzing in my ear. I just want to get them out of the way so I can do great things for the heavyweight division," said Wilder, who wasn't so great in his last fight, when he drew with Tyson Fury, the first time he didn't win in 40 career bouts. "I want one champion, one face, one name, but you need a lot of cooperation to make that happen."
