Whyte: Klitschko KO’ed Wilder In Sparring
Deontay Wilder is preparing for his rematch with Tyson Fury on February 22nd, but another heavyweight challenger from the United Kingdom is calling him out.
Dillian Whyte, current interim WBC world heavyweight champion continues to bait Wilder, this time with claims former unified world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko knocked Wilder out cold during a sparring session.
“I was just trying to learn, and then I saw him knocking people out. I was thinking ‘you ain’t f–king knocking me out.’ I went in there and I went after him,” Whyte explained to Sky Sports.
“He broke Sexton’s nose. I said ‘nah. Woah, you’re not knocking me out. I’m coming’. I went in there and started roughing him up and having a proper fight with him. I got sent home for that.”
“I’ve seen him getting knocked out,” said Whyte of Wilder, who has yet to lose as a professional fighter. “Wladimir knocked him out.
“He knew what happened. He had his hands up. He was roughing Wlad up, bringing the smoke, and he was going wild. Wlad backs up, changes his footwork, feinting, feinting, jabs to the body, throws that feint jab, left hook. Wilder had his hands up, he was gone.
“It wasn’t no knockdown, he was knocked cold. Properly twitching as well. That’s why they probably didn’t want him to fight Wlad, because Wlad was going to fight him as a pro and Wilder never fancied it the whole time.”
