We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Deontay Wilder is associated, including Wladimir Klitschko and Chris Arreola. Most recently, Deontay Wilder has been quoted saying: “Maybe people don't have it to the extent that I have it because I can get you out of there at any time but Joshua has a little power and they're going to play towards him. If Joshua's going to be successful he's going to move and take angles and be smart with Klitschko. Because Klitschko very smart, he's been around the block. He's trying to set you up.” in the article In the heavyweight division you don’t need skills’.
With Joshua he got the height, he got the power and in the heavyweight division you don't need skills. In the heavyweight division you can eliminate skills from anybody, even including myself, I don't need skills. I have power. You're in the game on[...]

[Joshua] definitely has a great chance in this fight and hopefully everything comes through and we have a mega-fight at the end of the year.
Joshua has no flexibility and doesn't move his head.
England is known for hyping their fighters up and I love that. I wish America was the same way. But unfortunately, they wait until you get to the very top and that's when everyone wants to come around and show love.
People are always going to find a reason to downplay me. I was in the Klitschko camp; I was in the [Tomasz] Adamek camp; the David Haye camp, and many more. Then add on my Olympic experience and all my pro fights. Yet they still said I'd lose to [Be[...]
Hopefully. I'm not too confident. There's a lot of people that's involved in this. It's not just me. But that's what the fans want.
I want to go get Parker. What would be better than me and Parker fighting for the unification and then after that you have another unification [against the Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko WBA and IBF unification victor]. Winner takes all. People d[...]
There's a lot of flaws Joshua has. Joshua's still young in the game. [Klitschko] is going to teach Joshua a lot of things in the ring too.
It's going to be up to Parker. I'm trying to give fans what they want. They want one champion. I'm trying to make that happen.
He lost because he didn't throw no damn punches. You've got to go out there and fight because you're the champ… Because you're the king and you don't let nobody take it.
He see things before they happen. They had a bond, they had a great relationship.
I'm very confident I am the best in the division, I'm very confident that I will unify this division. I'm waiting for my moment.
If he was to carry on I genuinely think it would be one last fight and that would be it. It's selecting that fight carefully. The fights that have been mentioned and the kind of money you're talking about for those fights dwarves anything he can ear[...]
I think Joshua would be the ultimate fight as far the fight and the hype for the fans that want to see the ultimate unification battle.
I prefer fighting taller opponents. I can see a lot of things easier against a taller fighter. I take every fighter seriously, especially when they're eye level. I know that I can be punished if I make a mistake and if their experienced enough to ca[...]
"I think I'm close to unifying the belts. I think this year will be a big step forward,". "A lot of people are talking about it and my team is 100 percent on board with it. We're taking the right approach to getting me in the position to get all the[...]
"Gerald Washington is a tall, athletic fighter with good size and power. I don't have the physical advantages and it'll make the fight exciting. It's two tall, athletic guys going at each other. It's going to be an even playing field and there's not[...]
"When I knocked out Artur Szpilka, I thought he was dead for a few seconds. That's just from natural, Alabama country power, ". "My preparation stays the same, even with the opponent change. I've been in situations where I've had to change a lot aft[...]
"I was disappointed when Wawrzyk tested positive for a banned substance and wasn't available to fight. I didn't want to disappoint my loyal fans in Birmingham, who have always supported me,". "I'm glad Gerald Washington stepped up to the challenge a[...]
"I'm excited about defending my world championship for a fifth time and in front of my great fans at Legacy Arena in Birmingham on February 25,". "It's always fun to display my talents in front of the hometown fans. It's an opportunity that I always[...]
'Why am I always missing out on the huge fights?'.
"We're just sending a message,". "Not only do you have to watch out for the right hand, but you also have to watch out for the left as well because it has progressed so much over the years. This is the third time I broke my hand, and now I have an e[...]
My hand is completely healed and my bicep is healed as well, so we're just working on flexibility and strengthening my whole right arm, and once that's done and it gets to a point that I'm satisfied with, you should see me back in the ring sometime [...]
"Shug is a very bright little boy, and it lights me up when I get around the children, to just observe them and see what they're doing and what their mind is thinking,"
"I like what I'm seeing,". "I like the division and what's been going on. Everybody plays their part and brings their excitement to the game. Of course, I'm not just doing it by myself. That's obvious.".
"Hey, if that makes a great show, then I'm up for the challenge,"
The build-up for the big fights is going on and one day I sat back and asked God, Lord, why am I always missing out on the huge fights?' And the answer I got is that he's allowing everybody else to eat right now. He knows I'm going to be the one to [...]
Why am I always missing out on the huge fights? We're just sending a message. Not only do you have to watch out for the right hand, but you also have to watch out for the left as well because it has progressed so much over the years. This is the thi[...]
My skin is tough. That's in all aspects of life, no matter what. I go through things to have a strong testimony because I know that somebody may, throughout my year, somebody may go through the same thing and I can give them advice on how to do it.
"I haven't been on a close watch of it. I've definitely been following it. It's ridiculous, if you ask me. I've got served papers and everything. I'm not letting it knock me off my game, my focus. It's just part of life, you know what I mean. I've b[...]
"Look at my fight with Eric Molina, or my fight with Johann Duhaupas, they just degrade them, they call them bums and [say] 'who are they?'". "It doesn't matter, this is the fight business, you never know what can happen. I think it's really going t[...]
"Only a fighter will know how serious it is to get up in the ring and take some punches to the head, keep in mind your head is not meant to be hit in the first place, we're the only people to get up in this ring and do it. So we do it because we lov[...]
When you get two fighters that fight with their heart, that do it for the legacy and not really the money. The money is a part of it… It's part of the business, it's part of the game, the money's part of it. But when you get two warriors that are fi[...]
This is going to be an exciting fight for everyone. It's two dangerous heavyweights. Two guys who fight with their hearts. It's going to be an action-packed fight from beginning to end.
There's only one name who can make this be what it is. Every time he steps in the ring, he comes to fight. I think we chose the right person.
"I feel like this is a special occasion. It's a short notice fight. A lot of guys said they would take it, but used the short notice as an excuse,". "It takes a lot to put together a fight. But when you can get someone who can make the best of this [...]
People said Arreola doesn't deserve the shot, but who are they to say things about a man who every time he gets in the ring, fights with his heart.
"I've been traveling a lot, going over to Sheffield, England to train before I was supposed to fight Alexander Povetkin in Moscow... I'm disappointed about that [falling through], but it's not going to stop me from being an active heavyweight world [...]
"I'm always excited about coming home and being in front of my people where I'm the most comfortable,"
"This is the longest stretch that I've been out of the ring and I'm anxious to get back in and continue my quest to become the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world,". "This is another fight in that process. I respect Chris Arreola for gettin[...]
I predict the fight as being a punishment in the first round and then knocking him out. All heavyweights want to knock somebody out. This is the cream of the crop division. The heavyweights. The hard-hitters. The heavy hitters, as they say. When we [...]
My name will be placed in history on that. Why wouldn't it? All the things I've done up to now, that will be the icing on my cake to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. I won't stop, no matter how many hours I have to put in. No mat[...]
"When I have a title that says the heavyweight champion of the world, I want to travel all over the world to defend my title. I'm living my dream, I'm getting an opportunity to do that with this fight,"
"My expectation is, of course, to win. To come back with that victory for America. This is a big fight, not just for myself, for America. It's like Russia vs. America,"
I really feel when I say that I will be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, I don't just say it to say it, but I also feel it inside me, deep inside me that I will be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world and add my name to [...]
"I'm excited about coming to New York City, I'm excited about displaying my talents and I'm excited about fighting at Barclays Center,"
"I'm looking forward to being the next undisputed heavyweight champion and the most active heavyweight champion in history,". "I'm also active once I get into the ring. In my last fight, I landed an average of 30 of the 53 punches that I threw each[...]
"I want to thank my opponent Artur Szpilka for accepting this opportunity that I'm giving him. I wish him luck – he's going to need it. I look forward to winning over the Polish fans after I beat him. I know he's a southpaw and he tends to give u[...]
"I've got to fight someone in January and after that I would love to have a unification bout - and guess what, I wouldn't mind coming to the UK for that one,". "No matter where it might be, I want to be the undisputed champion of the world.".
Hopefully, [Wladimir] Klitschko and I can fight sometime in the next year. We've got to get these mandatories out of the way first, so people have to stay patient. The key is to stay patient. This is a process and a business. That fight will surely [...]
Coming in here, when you're fighting for a world title, it brings a different beast, a very different animal, out of fighters. They come to get it on whether they're home or on the road. You have to give him credit. He did an excellent job and he de[...]
"I wasn't feeling any pressure at all. I'm well experienced. I've been doing this for a while now. It's tough fighting at home because you want to please and entertain the crowd. The people came out and they paid their hard-earned money so they defi[...]
He was very strong, definitely has a nice chin. I see why he's never been stopped before. With 32 wins and two losses, never been stopped. It was a great performance. That's what it's all about, bringing the title to Alabama and bringing these warri[...]
I was prepared to go all 12 rounds, but I started listening to my corner. They were saying to put my punches in bunches. All you can do is listen to your corner.
Klitschko and I have sparred before. I'm the younger guy and the more time that goes by, that's an advantage for me. Each and every fight, I prove a little bit more about what people don't know about me. Of course I can take a punch. Of course I can[...]
Duhaupas did everything we expected him to do. We knew he was tough. We knew he was mentally tough. We knew he was going to come. That's why I tell people, 'You can't criticize anyone you don't know. The scariest people are the ones you don't know. [...]
"I know my opponent has great size and that's what we're looking for in opponents. He has a great record and he's never been knocked out...until he faces me,"
"Fighting at home last time exceeded my expectations and coming back again is a blessing upon my life,". "I'm looking forward to bringing more boxing to Alabama and introducing the entire state to this great sport.".
"The heavyweight division is exciting once again. This is just the beginning. The potential for it. You've got a champion that's got charisma, is exciting, a silly guy and has got all the tools to make this thing bigger than it has ever been in year[...]
"I'm definitely that new face of boxing. You've got an American heavyweight champion of the world, he's right here,"
"Maybe in two years' time all the federations want to come together and have one belt anyway, I'm looking forward to that as well too. By that time I want to have all the belts. That way they won't have to worry about the heavyweight division,"
"In my opinion I think it'll only be up to Fury and what his mindset is towards that fight. I definitely think he's got a high percentage chance of being able to beat him. He's a taller guy. It would be harder to lean on him. Of course, we've seen m[...]
"He's got a lot of mandatories lined up. I'm definitely not going to sit around. I told people all the time I want to be a busy heavyweight. I want to be active and I promised people that,"
"I think Fury, due to what we saw in Klitschko's last fight, I think Fury has got a high percentage chance. It's going to depend on Fury, how seriously he's taking it. Is he really about the glory or the money?"
"2016 it happens, it happens. That's a title not if it's going to happen but when it's going to happen. If you ask me, that's something on his behalf that should happen earlier rather than later. Because he's getting older. I'm still a young guy. Th[...]
Even though I'm the WBC heavyweight champion of the world my heart still feels like a contender.
"I want to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world. That's my goal,". "What I want to do is not finished. This is just the beginning, a stepping stone.
Al Haymon did the right thing to take boxing back to free TV, which will be aired live to potentially over 100m viewers. Who doesn't want that? It's great for the sport of boxing to go mainstream.
"Al Haymon is a great man and a very intelligent businessman,". "Look I don't really care about PPV, there is no major sport that is on a PPV system, it is expensive for general fans and limits the reach for us as athletes and for the sport of boxin[...]
"I'm so excited to bring this belt back to America, officially,"
That's how I feel about it.
You win some, you lose some, you go through a cycle with generations.
We had all the greats like Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson, all those guys. The new generation coming up: it's a build up, boxing's one of the most difficult sports in the world, this is something that takes time to build. Physically as a fighter, you c[...]
It's just like USA in Olympics. Back in the day it used to be straight gold, all gold, everybody gold. Now it's to the point where other countries have been the main powerhouse and coming out with the golds. It's a big cycle, everybody gets their tu[...]
Now I can make all my dreams come true, I can make it a reality. America is yearning for a heavyweight world champion. We haven't had a real one since the days of Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. Everyone just sits back and remembers the glory days[...]
"I can't help that I always knock my guys out,". "It's not my fault I make it look easy. When I knock Stiverne out I don't want to hear any whispers. I don't want to hear people say that he was a bum. I want the world to bow down and praise the heav[...]
