Dillian Whyte Doubts ‘Coward’ Deontay Wilder Fights Again
Dillian Whyte doesn’t think Deontay Wilder will step back in the boxing ring.
Wilder has garnered quite a bit of attention recently. “The Bronze Bomber” has had a lot to say on his rematch with Tyson Fury. Wilder lost that fight via seventh-round TKO. At first, he blamed the weight of the costume he had on during his entrance. More recently, Wilder accused Fury of loading his gloves. He’s even gone as far as to accuse former trainer Mark Breland of spiking his water.
Speaking to Sky Sports, former interim WBC Heavyweight Champion Dillian Whyte predicted that Wilder will never compete in another pro boxing bout again.
“I don’t think we’ll see him in the ring ever again. He’s a coward and a disgrace. The behavior he’s shown and the way he’s acted, blaming everyone apart from himself, getting rid of the only person in his corner who knows anything about boxing? It’s weird.”
Many expected Wilder to take on Fury in a trilogy bout before the end of 2020. That opportunity appears to have slipped “The Bronze Bomber’s” grasp. Fury’s team claims the rematch clause has expired and as a result, “The Gypsy King” will move on to fight either Agit Kabayel or Carlos Takam on December 5 in London.
If Whyte’s prediction doesn’t come to fruition, then Wilder will be looking to bounce back from the first loss of his pro boxing career. Wilder’s record currently stands at 42-1-1. Along the way, Wilder has scored 41 knockouts. Now that he has seemingly missed out on the trilogy fight with Fury, it’ll be interesting to see where “The Bronze Bomber” will go from here.
