WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (41-0-1) gave his thoughts on the fact that the Brit Dillian Whyte (26-1) is his mandatory challenger.
“The Body Snatcher” was supposed to fight the American boxer more than year-and-a-half ago, but the World Boxing Council never made that fight official until now. Whyte defeated Oscar Rivas this past Saturday night in London, claiming the Interim WBC heavyweight championship and now he must fight the 33-year-old champ until the end of May 2020.
“The crybaby finally got a mandatory position”, Wilder stated.
“Going around crying ‘600 days’ and all that. Motherf***er, you could’ve fought me. He had four opportunities to fight, what do you mean? What took you so long?
“They wanna have this uproar about him not getting his opportunity when he had opportunities. It’s just to build up the fight, it’s pathetic and it’s stupid.”
Although Whyte is now the Interim champ, there’s a real chance that he won’t fight for the green and yellow belt until May 2020. “The Bronze Bomber” will face Luis Ortiz later this year and if he defends his title, then a mega-fight with Tyson Fury must happen somewhere around February or March. Still, Wilder believes that when this fight takes place, he’ll KO Whyte.
“But, you know, I’m happy that he’s finally the mandatory. I can’t wait, I can’t wait. It’s gonna be like Breazeale all over again…
“When it’s time for that fight to come, he’s gonna be in the fight of his life. I want him to know that right now. I don’t play around with nobody with what I say. Everybody knows I’m the realest in the business and when I say things I mean it…
“I can’t wait, I’mma knock him out silly.”
