Dillian Whyte Jibes Deontay Wilder Ahead Of Tyson Fury Rematch
Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has continued firing jibes at WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder, who presently prepares for his unification clash with Tyson Fury on February 22nd at the MGM Grand Arena.
Whyte who is currently the mandatory to the belt held by Wilder, claims he witnessed the WBC champion get knocked out cold by former Heavyweight ruler Wladimir Klitschko during a sparring session in training camp.
Wladimir Klitschko at one point held all the World titles in the heavyweight division and ruled over the Heavyweight division for over a decade during which he used the then prospects Dillian Whyte, Deontay Wilder and Unified Heavyweight Champ Anthony Joshua as sparing partners.
“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.”
Whyte also claims he witnessed Klitschko knockout and injure sparring partners during his time in the camp and due to this refusal to give in, ending up roughing up the then heavyweight ruler and that’s how he got his home ticket.
“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,” Whyte explained to Sky Sports.
“He broke Sexton’s nose. I said ‘nah. Woah, you’re not knocking me out. I’m coming’. I went in there and started roughing him up and having a proper fight with him. I got sent home for that.”
Presently Deontay Wilder is focused on his title rematch against Tyson Fury and according to sources Whyte will have his shot at the undefeated champion in 2020, that’s if he gets through the tough test in February.
