Dillian Whyte: Fury & Wilder Get Too Much Credit For Padded Records
Dillian Whyte is not impressed by the resumes of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder.
Whyte is the interim WBC Heavyweight Champion. He regained the gold after avenging his loss against Alexander Povetkin. Despite the victory, Whyte is no longer guaranteed a shot at the main WBC title and will likely have to take a fight or two before getting that chance.
During an interview with Sky Sports, Whyte expressed his belief that Fury and Wilder get far too much praise.
“Fury and Wilder get too much credit for their padded, cherry-picked records and have only beaten one current Ring Magazine top 10 fighter each. I’ve beaten three. Fury calls himself the greatest of all time, yet has turned down fights against me, even when ordered by the WBC. The guy’s a joker.”
Whyte also said he won’t recognize Fury as the undisputed heavyweight champion if he defeats Anthony Joshua.
“If I had fought Wilder, I’d have beaten Wilder before Fury. If I’d have beaten Wilder, I’d be undisputed WBC champion by now. As things stand there are two WBC world heavyweight champions. We have exactly the same belt. How can Fury fight to be undisputed when he is not even the undisputed WBC champion?”
