Deontay Wilder has doubled down on his death threat to Dominic Breazeale by offering to pay for his funeral.
Wilder said earlier this week that he has the legal right to kill a man by virtue of being a professional boxer.
He added that he wants a "body on his record" ahead of his heavyweight world title defence against his fellow American.
And when asked on Thursday if he would pay for Breazeale's funeral, Wilder said: "That’s the least I can do, I can pay for the funeral."
The champion has been widely condemned for his crash comments and could be sanctioned by the WBC.
The sanctioning body's president Mauricio Sulaiman revealed the threats will be discussed at a later date.
Wilder, meanwhile, is confident he will retain his belt at the Barclays Center in New York.
