In an interview with Toe2Toe Boxing podcast, Whyte said, “I would love to smash Deontay Wilder’s face in. I would love nothing more than to smash his face in… I’d be very charged up. I would go out in the first round and just start going after him… I’d love to fight him.”

According to Whyte, his team offered Wilder $7 million, but the ‘Bronze Bomber’ turned it down for a $1 million bout against Luis Ortiz.

Whyte said that he would go all out against Wilder right from the outset. He has always cited Wilder as a tough opponent whom he desperately wants to confront next in a high-profile heavyweight clash.

This fight will be true violence and won’t go till the last round for sure.

Dillian Whyte vs Deontay Wilder, will it be booked soon?

The Jamaican born Whyte is a former WBC Interim heavyweight champion. He was in contention for a title shot against Tyson Fury for the WBC gold until he lost a ferocious battle against Povetkin. Whyte knocked down Povetkin twice in that battle but was himself TKO’ed in round 5. The rematch against the Russian also is on the cards.

On the flip side, Deontay Wilder is in talks for his trilogy against the current WBC champion, Tyson Fury. The ‘Bronze Bomber’ seems uninterested in taking up any other fight instead of this trilogy. Wilder, one of the most highly intimidating boxers, was staggered in the rematch against Fury, wherein the ‘The Gypsy King’ knocked him out in round 7.

Overall, this fight doesn’t seem to be on the heavyweight cards soon, as the duo might have to take on at least one more opponent before they collide with each other.

If the fight does take place, do you think Dillian Whyte will put Wilder to sleep? Should the duo clash in 2021?
