“Fury Won the Belt off That Pathetic Hype Job Deontay Wilder” – Dillian Whyte

Published 06/04/2020, 3:40 PM EDT


Dillian Whyte has reached his saturation point. The interim WBC champ is unable to figure out what he needs to do in order to get his long-delayed title shot. He has stayed at the top of the rankings for more than 1,000 days. Having fought multiple top contenders, Whyte is certain he will defeat the WBC Heavyweight champ, Tyson Fury.

Whyte wants to beat Fury not just for the belt. He wants to prove that he is better than Tyson. It was “The Gypsy King” who jumped the line and fought the former champ, Deontay Wilder, not just once but twice. After becoming the champ, instead of fighting Whyte, Fury will defend his belt in a trilogy with Wilder. In Fury’s defense, he is giving Wilder a chance only because the latter had a rematch clause in his contract.

The injustice against Whyte doesn’t stop at the trilogy. Promoter Bob Arum has hinted that he wants to get the mandatory clause removed for Fury if he doesn’t take a lot of damage in the Wilder trilogy. At this point, Whyte’s patience gave up.

He slammed the founder of Top Rank. Whyte said that had Arum been his manager, the latter would have already cried about how big of a robbery Whyte is going through.

Dillian Whyte a Hundred percent Sure He Will Beat ‘The Gypsy Coward’ Tyson Fury

Whyte claimed that the WBC had promised him a title shot against the winner of Wilder-Fury II. However, Wilder has undergone surgery and has spent a significant chunk of time in recovery. Therefore, Dillian wants the WBC to promote him to fight for the belt. The only downside for a fight with “The Gypsy King” at this point would be the absence of a crowd, something which Fury has experienced most of his career, claimed Whyte.

Tyson Fury barely scraped by the WBC No 31 ranked Otto Wallin in front of only 3,500 people and then got gifted my mandatory position without fighting an eliminator, never mind a final eliminator,” Whyte said while talking to Sky Sports.

“Fury won the belt off that pathetic, hype job Deontay Wilder as his legs were too weak to carry it any longer after running away from me for years and it now looks like the two of them are in a relay,” he added.

The Brixton-based fighter is ranked as the No 2 Heavyweight in the Ring Magazine rankings. He is even above “The Bronze Bomber”. Whyte is extremely confident in his ability to get past Fury if they would ever meet inside the ring. “The Bodysnatcher” also made fun of Fury’s nickname.

One hundred percent I beat Fury. He has run in the past and he’s running scared now.”

“The WBC should order Fury to fight me next but I don’t think ‘The Gypsy Coward’ will. After all, he was previously ordered by the WBC to fight me. But he ran away, even when they met his demand of putting the Diamond Belt on the line.”

Do you think Whyte should have been Fury’s next title defense instead of Wilder?
