Dillian Whyte is really lashing out at WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder.
In recent interviews, Wilder has blamed Whyte for the long delay with respect to the two of them facing each other.
Whyte has been the WBC’s top rated contender for over 600 days and believes the sanctioning body is protecting the champion from facing him.
Earlier this year, Whyte was passed over by the WBC – who made Dominic Breazeale, ranked at three, as the mandatory challenger.
Wilder blew away Breazeale in a single round in May.
Whyte, who fights undefeated Oscar Rivas on July 20th at the O2 Arena in London, is not giving up in his hunt to face Wilder.
He believes that eventually the WBC will be forced to order them to face each other – even if the legal road is needed.
“Now he is trying to cover up his cowardice with bull**** and lies. Wilder and his Bumsquad are deluded and desperate to avoid fighting me at all costs. I offered him more to fight me than he got for fighting Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury combined,” Whyte told Talk Sport.
“The truth of the matter is that he has been running from me for over two years and can feel my hot breath on his neck. I’ve heard that he has been waking up in the middle of the night screaming, sweating and shaking and phoning the WBC in a panic, crying and begging them to keep me away from him.
“He is desperate to avoid facing me and I wouldn’t be surprised if he has already pleaded with the WBC to give him a franchise belt for the United States or even Alabama so that he can be heavyweight king in his own little, yellow castle. I am coming for you, Deontay, and when I catch you I am going to hurt you.”
