(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Dillian Whyte says he would like to get a chance to fight former WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder next following his fourth-round knockout victory over Alexander Povetkin on Saturday night in Gibraltar.
Dillian (28-2, 19 KOs) avenged his loss to Povetkin (36-3-1, 25 KOs) in the headliner event on DAZN and Sky Sports Box Office after knocking down the 41-year-old fighter.
Now that Whyte’s rematch business with Povetkin is done, he would like to fight in July so that he could box a third time this year in December.
It would be a quick turnaround for Whyte to fight in July, but he didn’t take any punishment from Povetkin, who looked old tonight like a fighter much older than his chronological age of 41.
As far as fighting Wilder (42-1-1, 41 KOs), Whyte has doubts whether he’ll ever fight again. He’s been out of the ring since his loss to Tyson Fury in February 2020.
“We don’t know if Deontay Wilder is ever going to fight again,” said Whyte when asked if he would like to fight Wilder next. “He has no interest in fighting again
“All he does is post pictures with guns, alcohol, drink, and weed. That’s all he posts. I haven’t seen him boxing training or talking about boxing.
“Have you seen him talking about boxing? He may never fight again. I’d love to smash his face in, but if he’s not going to fight again, what can I do?” said Whyte about Wilder.
