Bellew And Whyte Continue Verbal Attacks
Dillian Whyte and Tony Bellew have made it quite known to anyone who listens that they don’t think highly of one another.
This past weekend, Whyte defeated Robert Helenius by unanimous decision for the WBC silver title. The fight was part of the Anthony Joshua vs. Carlos Takam undercard.
After the contest was over, Bellew was one of many who were critical of Whyte’s performance. Bellew feels the once-beaten boxer is not ready to face someone on the level of WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
Whyte, after hearing the statements that were made by the former WBC cruiserweight champion, was furious. The statement from Bellew have struck a nerve with Whyte, who claims that he will fight him for no money at stake – at least on his end.
“Tony Bellew is a very bitter man and he is a coward.”
“I have offered to fight Tony Bellew for free on numerous occasions. This is a man that was getting knocked out at super-middleweight and at light-heavyweight. He is not a true heavyweight.”
“Tony Bellew is scared to fight me, he is scared to fight Anthony Joshua, he is scared to fight Deontay Wilder. I am not scared to fight any of these guys. That is the reason why he feels he needs to bad-mouth me.”
“If he is a real man, let him fight me. I want to fight him and beat up him just to show him he is not a true heavyweight. He will get smashed.” I have said publicly before I will fight him for free and I will stick to that. He can have all the pay-per-view, all the revenue for the gates, everything. I just want to make a statement. It is one fight in my career I am willing to make a statement on.”
Bellew returns in December in a bitter rematch with David Haye at the O2 Arena in London.
