Whyte Has No Sympathy For Wilder

Dillian Whyte has made it known that he has no sympathy for Deontay Wilder, after he “wasted” Whyte’s time.

Whyte, who holds the WBC silver heavyweight title, believes Wilder not getting his unification fight with Anthony Joshua, is karma for denying Whyte a world title opportunity

“You know, what goes around, comes around,” Whyte told Sky Sports. “I ain’t got no sympathy for him, no chance. He’s messed me about and wasted my time.

“Paid thousands and thousands of sanctioning fees. I’ve had all the fights, the ranking fights, I won all the belts that I could win off the WBC. I won every single one that I was eligible for, I’ve defended them.

“I was No 1 but none of that was relevant, basically Deontay Wilder just kept on avoiding me, and then now he thought he had the fight and then Joshua went the other way.

“Now he’s crying. He’s going to be so disheartened he may lose his next fight.”

Wilder would brand  Whyte as a “peasant” and continue to look past him as a potential challenger for the WBC title, and Whyte would be surpassed by Dominic Breazeale as Mandatory challenger. hyte said: “I know the feeling, because you’re thinking I’ve got the big one coming next, I train and train, I go in there and put in a good performance and then the champion strings you out.

“Now he understands. Karma is you know what, and now he’s on the receiving end of it.

“Hopefully it’s humbled him and hopefully he will start fighting his mandatory and No 1 challengers now, and realize that [he should] just fight the people that are there to fight. He would have made a lot of money by fighting me.”

Eddie Hearn has offered Wilder an alternative date of April 13 at Wembley Stadium for a heavyweight unification fight, but Whyte believes Wilder is less willing to make a deal with the Matchroom CEO.

“I don’t know,” he said. “I think he feels he’s been mugged off a bit by Eddie Hearn and Joshua. Egos and stuff gets in the way and these fights don’t happen. It’s a massive fight, it’s a mega fight.

“Out of principle, he might say I’m not fighting this guy, because they messed me about.”
