Dillian Whyte gave interview to Sky Sports about punishing days with Wladimir Klitschko as he joined Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder in an unforgiving training camp.
“I was just trying to learn, and then I saw him knocking people out. I was thinking: “you ain’t f**king knocking me out.” I went in there and I went after him”, recaps Whyte.
Sam Sexton, an aspiring contender from Norfolk, was left with a painful memento.
“He broke Sexton’s nose. I went in there and started roughing him up and having a proper fight with him. I got sent home for that.”
Then was Deontay Wilder’s turn.
“I’ve seen him getting knocked out”, said Whyte. “Wladimir knocked him out. He knew what happened. He had his hands up. He was roughing Wlad up, bringing the smoke, and he was going wild.”
“Wlad backs up, changes his footwork, feinting, feinting, jabs to the body, throws that feint jab, left hook. Wilder had his hands up, he was gone. It wasn’t no knockdown, he was knocked cold. Properly twitching as well. That’s why they probably didn’t want him to fight Wlad, because Wlad was going to fight him as a pro and Wilder never fancied it the whole time.”
