Whyte: I’ll Be 61 By The Time I Fight Wilder
Dillian Whyte feels that he’ll need a walker by the time he’s able to fight Deontay Wilder for the WBC world heavyweight title.
Despite being the top ranked fighter in the WBC’s standings and the silver heavyweight title, Wilder was ordered to fight Dominic Breazeale on May 18th at Barclays Center.
“Wilder, what can I do? He’s fought one mandatory challenger in four years. One. How can he still be champion? The guy he won the belt from, who has had one fight in two years, he fought him for it,” Whyte told The Express.
“I’ve been No 1 for two years. Breazeale shouldn’t even be a mandatory, he fought Eric Molina who was suspended at the time, banned because he failed a drugs test after the Joshua fight – he shouldn’t even be eligible to fight. He’s [Breazeale’s] No 4, I’m No 1. Who has he fought? I’ve fought back-to-back good guys, I’ve won seven or eight WBC title fights and more.
“Wilder said I’ve gotta be patient and wait, I’ve been waiting two years! S**t, I’m going to be Luis Ortiz’s age when he fights me,: Whyte said of the Cuban southpaw who is 41-years old.
“I’ll be 61 years old, my knees will be decrepit and old and I’ll have WD40 in my back pocket. Deontay Wilder knows. I’m not going in there for a boxing match, I’m going in there to beat him up and rough him up. Every time he gets hit, he’s always rocked.”
