What Does Dillian Whyte Think About Anthony Joshua And Tyson Fury’s Meeting?
Known as someone who means what he says online and in person, Dillian Whyte does not think highly of Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury. That is especially true following their most recent meetup.
The WBC and lineal Heavyweight Champion in Fury (30-0-1) and the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO Heavyweight Champion in Joshua (23-1) happened to bump into one another while on vacation. Both are saying it was a random occurrence. Whyte (27-1) isn’t buying any of it.
“That looked so staged,” Whyte told Sky Sports. “Those two just met at the right time and the right place, and they were just having a casual chat?
“The way they speak on social media – they want to do this to each other. It looks like it was just staged.”
The interim WBC Heavyweight Champion in Whyte is talking about recent callouts Joshua and Fury have had against one another. Joshua recently stated he is not impressed with Fury and that he has to earn his respect. Fury has stated he will annihilate Joshua after he takes care of Deontay Wilder in a trilogy bout. Both have agreed in principle to fight one another in 2021.
Whyte is hoping to get in the way of those plans. According to the WBC, Whyte will get a shot at the WBC Heavyweight Title following Wilder-Fury III sometime in December. When it comes to talking smack, Whyte believes you should stay true to what you say.
“I was just laughing,” Whyte went on to say. “I was thinking to myself, ‘look at these two jokers.’
“If I see someone and they’re talking smack about me and saying they are going to do this and do that, then when I see you, have the same energy. I’m not going to be standing outside your car window, standing on the sidewalk speaking to you. Come on man.”
Whyte is expected to defend his interim WBC Heavyweight Title against Alexander Povetkin on August 22. The fight will take place during the last week of “Matchroom Fight Camp” in Essex.
