Whyte has a fight with former WBA Heavyweight Champion Alexander Povetkin, whose date was pushed due to the Corona Virus pandemic and they will both collide in the 22nd of August.

Dillian Whyte also believes that the former WBC champion Wilder, was making use of the wrong tactics against Fury and should have spent most of his time body hunting in a bid to break him down than his usual head hunting.

“He [Fury] knows Deontay Wilder doesn’t hit as hard as what everyone makes out, and Deontay Wilder can’t body punch. Had Wilder been hitting him in the body, earlier in the fight, he wouldn’t have been able to get up from that punch in the later rounds, but his body was fresh, his legs were fresh,” Whyte told Sky Sports. 

“There was no body punching going on, Wilder can only head hunt. You can shake the head punches off sometimes, but when your body is broken down, and you’ve been hit up and down – that’s how you’ve got to fight Fury, you have to fight up and down. You can’t just head hunt. He’s a tough guy, he gets up, but I’m going to be targeting head and body, relentless all night long, so it will be a different story.”

Recently, there has been news flying through social media with Whyte making claims he had dropped Fury several times in Sparring and that those encounters still remain fresh in his head.

“He’s got all these skills and all this other stuff, but I’m an animal and I’ll come to fight, simple as that,” said Whyte.
“He has been in the ring with someone like me, because I sparred him many times. I was very inexperienced at the time, and I still gave him work. A lot of work!”
