After the fight on Saturday, however, the 223¼-pound Wilder, who was outweighed by 32 pounds against the 255¼-pound Breazeale, said the bad blood had been laid to rest.
Speaking to The Metro, Davison explained how Fury's performance and the comfort at which he was able to handle Wilder's famed power may well have have sapped the confidence possessed by the WBC champ.
Wilder hurt Breazeale with a right to the head early in their fight at Barclays Center, but the challenger had recovered from that early onslaught.
He said his incontestable victory that: "Everything just came out of me tonight". There was a lot of hatred between us and there were a lot of words that were said. It just came out tonight, and this is what makes boxing so great.
Wilder got the job done with a vicious first round KO of Breazeale.
"I told him I love him and that I want to see him go home to his family", he said.
Breazeale was counted out and even when he got up, his feet bucked, wobbled as he attempted to gain consciousness; dazed to say the least. It's the heavyweight division, so there's going to be big shots from guys with power.

"I think it will happen", he admitted. I understand that he needs a couple of lesser fights to try to get back on track before thinking about getting in the ring with me again'.
Deontay Wilder had not fought since his draw against Fury in 2018 - a fight many thought he lost - and expressed his desire to set up the rematch. The beef which began two years ago with a melee in an Alabama hotel lobby appeared to be squashed.
"I saw him slow up a little bit". There were those who have also started wondering if theres no higher authority that could at least temper or put Wilder in a sane corner. They need to understand nobody can keep up with Tyson when it comes to boxing. Dillian Whyte, you'll get it as well. "There was a big buildup to this fight", he said. The great thing is all these fights are in discussion. "I know it's been a big build-up to this fight.
All teams, all parties who are involved are talking".
Before Saturday night Wilder had walked into a boxing ring on 41 occasions, professionally, and in 39 of those he'd got his opponent out early with only Bermane Stiverne and Tyson Fury lasting the distance, and only Fury not losing. "But Wilder - you're the second-baddest man on the planet, behind me". "I came here from Miami to see this fight". I don't know if that will be next. Many felt that the "Gypsy King" was very hard done by in that one, and should have won the fight.
