Dillian Whyte wants to ‘smash Deontay Wilder’s face in’ as he accuses Bronze Bomber of being disrespectful
Dillian Whyte wants to ‘smash Deontay Wilder’s face in’ as he hopes to fight the heavyweight boxer next year.
The British boxer is desperate to face the Bronze Bomber before or after his rematch with Alexander Povetkin, who beat him in August.
Meanwhile, Wilder is still trying to lock in a third and final bout with Tyson Fury.
Whyte has claimed Wilder once turned down a $7million (£5.1m) offer to fight him.
He told Sky Sports: “I would love to smash Deontay Wilder’s face in.
It’s one of those fights where I would be very charged up. I would go out in the first round and just get going after him.
“It is frustrating, but it’s still a big name. He’s one of the top guys and I would love to fight him.
“He has to be serious. We offered him six, seven million dollars once and he turned it down when he was making one million dollars to fight Luis Ortiz.
“How serious is he?”
Whyte has accused Wilder and other heavyweight boxers of being disrespectful.
He added: “When people mention Deontay Wilder’s name to me, I just get stressed. It’s crazy, because once again someone else wants to fight me.
“[Joseph] Parker didn’t want to fight me when he had the title. I tried to fight him, no. Lucas Browne, I tried to fight him, no. All of these guys.
“Deontay Wilder, I tried to fight him when he was champion. No. Now they’ve all lost, they want to fight me after.
