Whyte’s other superlatives about Wilder included “Coward,” “Chicken,” “Yellow-livered hillbilly.”
“It would be a tough fight because he is quite agile with awkward movement. I would expect a tough fight but I believe I can knock Wilder out,” Whyte said of a potential fight with Wilder. “People might laugh but I believe I can get to him, and knock him out.
“It wouldn’t be a fight where I would jab my way in. I’d run at him in the first round and start brawling and, if I get chinned, then so be it.”
“I don’t know what to say about Tyson Fury,” Whyte told Sky Sports of Wilder’s February 22nd opponent. “He’s a smart businessman – he came back and fought two nobodies, talked his way into the Wilder fight and did alright, and made a lot of money by fighting in WWE.
“He’s awkward and a big guy but I believe I could beat him. You’ve got to target Fury’s body, and pressure him. When Otto Wallin pressured him it caused a lot of problems.”
