Whyte: Fury "Stopped" Wilder, I Would Have Knocked Him Out!

Dillian Whyte has shot down Deontay Wilder's claim that his ring outfit, which apparently weighed 40-pounds or more, weakened his legs last Saturday night.

Wilder was dropped twice and stopped in seven rounds by Tyson Fury in their anticipated rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Whyte, who holds the WBC's interim-title, is the mandatory challenger to Fury's belt. Fury has until February 2021 to meet that mandatory obligation.

Wilder is now going to exercise an immediate rematch clause to face Fury in the summer.

Whyte says Wilder should have did what Fury did - get carried to the ring on a throne.

"Your outfit, you try it on before the fight. For that kind of outfit, you need at least three, four fittings. You're telling me, somewhere between those three, four fittings, he didn't think 'uh, this is a bit heavy, it might affect my legs.' He just talks crap. It's the same weight as a backpack," Whyte said to Sky Sports.

"I think in the army, the backpack they carry is 60 or 70 kilos or something and those guys march in a backpack for days and they are half the size of him. It just shows you how much rubbish the guy talks, how deluded he is. How can an outfit wear your legs down? He should do what Tyson done, make someone take him to the ring."

Despite the loss, Whyte is willing to fight Wilder at any point in time. Currently, Whyte is on pace to fight former world champion Alexander Povetkin in May.

Whyte has been calling to fight Wilder since 2018.

"I'm disappointed, but I will still fight the guy," said Whyte. "I've waited so long to fight the guy. I've been chasing him for so long and he's such a coward.

"He didn't want to give me the shot when he was champion, so he might give me a shot now he's not champion. It is disappointing, because Tyson Fury did what I've been saying I could do to him and did it, not exactly the way I would have done it, because I'd have knocked him out. If I'd had him hurt, I would have had a proper shootout with him, and I would have knocked him out. Tyson stopped him in good fashion on his feet, but I would have stopped him on the floor."

Whyte needs to just hang with fluffy Ruiz and go deep throat some Snickers bars filled with some kind of diuretic...or fight each other that would be interesting
