WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has said he can break American legend Floyd Mayweather’s 50-0 record… and that too easily.

Ever since making his debut in 2008, the 32-year-old Wilder has won all of his 39 fights – 28 of them inside the distance. Mayweather, on the other hand, called a time on his career after stopping Conor McGregor in August last year.

“[The possibility of breaking Mayweather’s record] came across my ears from the people that’s around me (sic),” Wilder told Yahoo Sports, as quoted by BoxingScene.

“It also had me think about it just a little bit. Those achievements… and if I make it [a] goal, it will definitely happen. I can easily beat all of those guys’ records, easily.

“I’m just stepping into the prime of my career. I just walked into the door. I mastered my craft. I know everything about myself in the ring.”

Wilder is scheduled to trade punches with the unbeaten Luis Ortiz (28-0) – a contest, if won, will take him closer to a blockbuster unification with IBF, IBO and WBA holder Anthony Joshua (20-0).
