Boxing News at Five: Wilder says he would “end a life” if he competed in the UFC, Parker will be the “A-side” in any potential fight against Usyk

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder is talking about ‘killing’ people again.

The only difference this time is that it’s not boxers Wilder is discussing harming but instead mixed martial artists, fighters who typically compete wearing four-ounce gloves.

Though Wilder concedes he has no immediate plans to fight in MMA, he is seemingly receptive to the idea of one day experimenting in other combat sports and discovering the impact his undoubted power would have elsewhere.
