Whyte Smiles: Karma Hit Wilder, Now He's Crying Over Joshua

Top contender Dillian Whyte is not feeling sorry for WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, who failed in his attempt to finalize a unification deal with WBA, IBF, IBO world champion Anthony Joshua.

Whyte is currently preparing for his high stakes showdown with former champion Joseph Parker on July 28th at the O2 Arena in London.

Wilder was in deep negotiations for a fight with Joshua, but they were unable to reach an agreement on the terms - and now Joshua will make a mandatory defense against Alexander Povetkin of Russia - likely on September 22 in the UK.


Whyte has a big smile over the situation, because at one point he was the WBC's number one contender - but he was unable to secure a fight with Wilder.

After being unable to get Wilder in the ring, Whyte turned his back on the WBC's top ranking and signed a lucrative deal to fight Parker in what may become a final eliminator for another sanctioning body.

"You know, what goes around, comes around," Whyte told Sky Sports. "I ain't got no sympathy for him, no chance. He's messed me about and wasted my time. Paid thousands and thousands of sanctioning fees. I've had all the fights, the ranking fights, I won all the belts that I could win off the WBC. I won every single one that I was eligible for, I've defended them.

"I was No 1 but none of that was relevant, basically Deontay Wilder just kept on avoiding me, and then now he thought he had the fight and then Joshua went the other way. Now he's crying. He's going to be so disheartened he may lose his next fight."

Whyte is hoping that Wilder learned some type of lesson from all of the obstacles that he faced in attempting to get Joshua.

"Now he understands. Karma is you know what, and now he's on the receiving end of it," Whyte said.

"Hopefully it's humbled him and hopefully he will start fighting his mandatory and No 1 challengers now, and realise that [he should] just fight the people that are there to fight. He would have made a lot of money by fighting me."

Wilder's next move is unknown, but there is a deal on the table to face Joshua - should he win in September - on a date of April 13 at Wembley.
