The Bronze Bomber caused outrage after an appearance on The Breakfast Show last month, announcing his desire to kill someone in the boxing ring one day.
“I want a body on my record. I want one,” he said.
“I want one. I really do.”
Wilder, who has established a reputation as the hardest puncher in the heavyweight division having knocked out every opponent he has faced in the ring, was subsequently slammed by fight fans in the UK.
The comments came at a particularly sensitive time, with the tragic death of British fighter Scott Westgarth still fresh in the memory of the boxing community.
Wilder, 32, subsequently apologised for his comments – but in an interview with Viceland’s Desus and Mero this week, he risked fresh controversy with similarly ill-advised comments.
Describing the feeling of knocking out an opponent, Wilder said: “It’s like being a killer. It’s like the first time you murder, you think about it a little bit.
“The second time, there’s less feeling. The third time, you don’t even need a discussion.
“The cycle repeats itself so much that I don’t have a feeling towards it.”
Anthony Joshua was among those to condemn Wilder for his comments the first time around, telling reporters: “I dread the day it happens, because sometimes what you say does come to reality.
“I just hope it doesn’t happen to someone. [This sort of talk] is not good for the sport at all. It’s not nice to write about, is it? Once a life’s gone, you can’t get it back.”
Joshua reportedly made a third offer to Wilder’s team this week in an attempt to set up an undisputed heavyweight clash, imploring the American to carefully weigh up the deal before making a decision.
However, after further details emerged about the economics of the offer submitted by promoter Eddie Hearn, many boxing fans questioned whether the deal was fair.
Wilder knocked out 39-year-old Luis Ortiz last time out, surviving a seventh-round scare to stop the Cuban southpaw in the 10th round.
And during his chat with Desus and Mero, the Alabama man revealed how he sensed when the time was right to unload his ferocious finishing combinations.
“There’s so many secrets in the boxing ring,” he explained.
“There’s so many things that you can see from an opponent just reading them and you’ll see weakness as you create it there for them.
“When they start making mistakes, you might record it or whatever until we get to that point and then they’ll start slowing down a little bit. Maybe they start doing something that they weren’t at first.
“Then that will indicate to you that it is coming up. You don’t know when it’s coming – but it is coming.
“And when it comes, can you withstand the storm?”
