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 Dominic Breazeale is associated, including Anthony Joshua and London. Most recently, Dominic Breazeale has been quoted saying: “Looking into his eye I wanted to see whether he's going to break, whether he's an emotional character, whatever it may be.

"I'm very excited to return to battle once again in Birmingham, Alabama and on FOX and FOX Deportes,". "It's a new year for me and I have great expectation for 2017. It all starts with a victory on February 25. I know my opponent is going to come pr[...]
"It's in my blood, I learned that late,"
"I lost my mum back in December, very young, very, very short, at the time it came as almost a blessing in disguise. I learned a little about my father. My father wasn't in my life but I was handed a box [of his mother's], let's say a keepsake, mayb[...]
I think my mum was trying to keep me away from it as long as she possibly could. Makes sense now when I told her when I was going to start boxing at 23 she thought I was crazy… It all sort of made sense when I opened up that box.
I've won every battle since I set foot over here, whether it be the last press conference where I rattled him a little bit on the grass … as well as coming out here and just being present, being here first, being the guys that's stepping to him, bei[...]
"We're definitely able to size each other up,". "He's seen in my face that I'm ready to go. It's not necessarily that I'm tense. I'm ready for it to happen.
Looking into his eye I wanted to see whether he's going to break, whether he's an emotional character, whatever it may be. As much as this is a physical game it is a mental game as well. I've got to take advantage of both of them.
I got a big right hand, I have a big left hook. I stand 6-foot-7, 255 pounds. I'm unorthodox – I'm a guy that can fight on the inside, I'm a guy that can take a punch, I'm a guy that can give a punch. So if any one of those given things show up on [...]
Expect fireworks. We'll be going round for round, punch for punch and I expect to knock out Joshua.
It's a major advantage just for me to have Anthony Joshua the whole time. I don't want him at any given point for him to feel like he's in his comfort zone, his own backyard or his own little lion's den.
That's what I came across the pond to do. I came across the pond to get my belt and take it back home with me.
It's my Super Bowl. Being a former football player, this is my Super Bowl.
I can't wait, it's been an opportunity I've been waiting eight years for this. It's an opportunity of a lifetime and I'm ready for this.
He can land those shots on me ten times and I am not going down. And if I did, I am not going to look up at the referee with a smile on my face. You are in the ring with a beast, it might be your Lion's den but there's a new lion in town.
Dillian Whyte hurt him, he had him out on his feet but he couldn't close the door on him. I saw a ton of mistakes and I'll take advantage of them. When I have him out on his feet, I'll put him down on the canvas, and when I do that, I want him to ge[...]
"I'm going to shock the world – 'Trouble' is coming,". "I have no back up plan because I am going to KO AJ and become World champion. The more I talk, the more I want to get in there and do this, bite down on the gumshield and fight. He's chosen the[...]
For me, I think my football background is going to come in hand when fighting on the road in London. Anytime you get on the football field and you play quarterback, let's say you're down by 20-30 points and all the fans are booing, throwing popcorn [...]
"I think Joshua's thinking of me as a stepping stone and he's going to be sorry about that. He's just wrong. I mean, he's fighting a guy at 6-foot-7, 255 pounds that brings the pressure and a great pace from round-to-round. I'm one of those guys t[...]
"It's just another confidence booster. It's one thing to finish a guy in the first round with three punches or something like that. It's another thing to finish a guy in the sixth, seventh round with a combination of shots and finally you come out [...]
It gives me something to work on. I know I've been down on the canvas, I know I was able to come back and be very successful from it. Anytime you get a win of that matter where you get a guy, break him down, break him down where he quits on the stoo[...]
The situation that I'm in now mentally is just different compared to some of my fights in the past. My confidence level is through the roof. And physique-wise I feel great.
Either way, I'm going to make it a fight. All of my opponents have been down on the canvas and I don't think Joshua is going to come shy of that as well.
Whether people are going to say, 'Amir was going to beat you, he was ahead on the cards,' then again he's got a broken jaw and he'll probably never fight again. It's one of those things. I can go to bed at night thinking to myself, you know what, t[...]
My mindset has definitely changed. This is an opportunity I have been working for the last eight years. I dabbled around in boxing as a 23-year-old, and here I am at 30 getting ready to turn 31 and it's progressively getting better and better, day a[...]
"I think, in general, he's kind of had a little bit of a stepping stone as far as fighting in the Olympics in his backyard, having the judges there in his backyar,"
I'm going in as the underdog, I'm going into an arena with 20,000 opposing fans. I've been picked as the smaller guy in the ring, by the IBF as a stepping stone and I feel like my back is against the wall. I'm going to come out fighting.
