Would love to smash his face in: Dillian Whyte spits fire at Deontay Wilder

Former WBC interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte is not only willing to fight Deontay Wilder but also intends a ‘smashing’ victory over him.

Dillian Whyte (27-2, 18 KOs) was last seen in action against Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin on 22nd August this year, the fight where he lost his WBC interim belt at the Matchroom Sport Headquarters in Brentwood, England.

While the rematch with a COVID-recovering Povetkin faces one after another postponement, Whyte expressed his desire to target the big names in the heavyweight division and the name that comes up first is Deontay Wilder, whom Dillian Whyte wants to face next year.

Dillian Whyte wants Deontay Wilder to accept his challenge seriously

In an interview with Sky Sports, Whyte challenged Wilder to a fight which the Briton claims it charges him up and his enthusiasm shows no difference.

“I would love to smash Deontay Wilder’s face in,” said Whyte, “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.”

Since his rematch with Tyson Fury on 22nd February this year, Wilder has been pushing for a trilogy fight with the WBC heavyweight champion and has even filed a legal action, while Fury believes the obligation has expired in October.

Whyte claims the situation has been frustrating because Wilder has picked fights against the likes of Luis Ortiz and Dominic Breazeale in between his Fury bouts while ignoring the offers he made to the American and now wants Wilder to be serious about their fight.

“It is frustrating, but it’s still a big name. He’s one of the top guys and I would love to fight him,” the 32-year-old went on, “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?”
