Dillian Whyte has continued his social media assault on Deontay Wilder today calling the WBC champion a “coward”. After 800 days as number 1 in the WBC ranking, a clearly frustrated Whyte took to Instagram and said:
‘Congratulations to @BronzeBomber who has been awarded a special belt by @WBCBoxing the WBC Worlds Biggest Coward belt to be known as the WBC WBC belt for successfully avoiding me as his official #1 ranked challenger for over 800 days’
This is a day after it was revealed that Whyte claimed he saw Wilder knocked out in sparring by former Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko in an interview conducted by Sky Sports.
Whyte is no stranger to trash-talking his rivals, Is this just that? Or is there substance to his claims? There’s no way to know for sure but one thing is clear, The build-up and press conferences for Wilder v Whyte will be very entertaining when the mandatory is called in February 2021 should both men keep winning.
