For some years Dillian Whyte was chasing the former WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder.
The Brit was the mandatory challenger for about three years, but unfortunately for him, the World Boxing Council had Wilder fighting Tyson Fury twice, Dominic Breazeal, and Luis Ortiz twice.
Now, after Widler is no longer a champion, he called out Whyte and several other top names, but he forgot to mention Anthony Joshua. Anyway, back to Whyte.
“The Body Snatcher” lost to Alexander Povetkin in August and the Russian got his mandatory spot. Now the rematch is about to take place in January, but Whyte hasn’t forgotten about Wilder.
“Tyson Fury is not fighting him, so who else can he make any money from? Deontay Wilder is not a big draw at all. Even when he was heavyweight champion, he could not sell out venues and I think he’s only ever had a couple of fights on pay-per-view. All he does is run around and talk sh–,” Whyte said to Sky Sports.
“He’s a coward,” Whyte roared. “Now he’s got nothing at all to lose, basically. When I was the challenger, I went through hell trying to get him to man up to fight me, and he wouldn’t fight me, so I’m going to chase the world title. It’s a good fight, a fight that I’m interested in, but he needs to dance to my tune.
“I want to beat the guy up, to be honest with you. Personally, I don’t like him. I think he’s a bad ambassador for the sport. I’m sure the British people and the American fans would love to see me knock him out. It’s going to be war. I’m just there to knock him out.”
