Whyte Calls Wilder A Crackhead
In 2018, WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder said in an interview that he would like to “have a body” on him by the end of his career.
Wilder, who said that prior to his fight with Luis Ortiz, later stated that those comments were said under his Bronze Bomber, alter-ego. Either way, all of this made WBC silver heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte laugh.
Whyte, who is looking to to be the mandatory challenger for the WBC world heavyweight crown, told IFL TV this week that Wilder will have an easy night against Dominic Breazeale.
“It’s an easy fight,” Whyte said to the broadcast outlet. “Deontay Wilder will bash Dominic Breazeale up. Breazeale’s scared of Wilder. I watched the press conference, the face of Breazeale, he was shaking in his boots. Wilder again saying, ‘I can hear your heartbeat. I’m a killer, you’ve never been in front of a killer before’. What are you talking about? This is boxing, you’re not a killer. You’re not some hitman. It’s boxing. The guy is stupid,” Whyte told IFL TV.
“Wilder is a crackhead. Crackheads say crackhead-like things and do crackhead-like things. They’re desperate, they do desperate stuff, say desperate stuff and that’s why Wilder is a crackhead. He’s scared. He needs to say these things to himself to get his confidence up, he’s basically talking to himself.
“When someone’s scared and nervous, they say erratic things and say things they don’t mean,” Whyte continued. “He puts on this massive ‘Bronze Bomber’ persona and he shouts and he’s loud, it’s just to give himself self-esteem. He’s scared and he doesn’t know what to say, just like crackheads do.”
