Dillian Whyte slams Deontay Wilder after he accused Tyson Fury of cheating in their two fights.

Dillian Whyte has slammed fellow heavyweight Deontay Wilder, calling the American a ‘disgrace’ because of his refusal to accept his defeat by Tyson Fury.

Wilder made headlines again last week when he offered up more excuses for his loss to Fury in Las Vegas in February.

The Bronze Bomber’s most recent claim was that the Gypsy King loaded his gloves and is now running scared of a trilogy clash.

Wilder claimed Fury put ‘something the size and shape of an egg-weight’ in his gloves, which left a dent in his head.

But Whyte, who is due to have a rematch with Alexander Povetkin in November, is having none of Wilder’s excuses and hit out at the American while predicting he could retire soon.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the Body Snatcher said:

‘This guy is just a disgrace. I don’t think we’ll see him in the ring ever again. He’s a coward and a disgrace.’

‘I think the behaviour he’s shown and the way he’s acting and blaming everyone apart from himself, and getting rid of the only person who knows anything about boxing – it’s weird.’

‘I’m not that way inclined, I didn’t give one excuse after my defeat, I just said “let’s run it back”.

‘I went away, I went straight back into training.’

Fury took Wilder’s WBC heavyweight title with a stunning stoppage in February, 14 months after they fought out a controversial draw in Los Angeles.
