Dillian Whyte has slammed Deontay Wilder for suggesting he lost his rematch to Tyson Fury because of a heavy walk-out costume.
Wilder has been thoroughly ridiculed by boxing fans and fighters for the bizarre excuse after he claimed his legs were drained by the time he entered the ring.
Whyte was baffled by Wilder’s excuse and also hit out at the former WBC champion for threatening to sack his coach after the fight.
‘He’s talking s*** man. Him and his crack dealer, their s*** is strong, real strong,’ Whyte told Behind the Gloves.
‘How can you be over 230lbs and you’re telling me a 40lbs jacket weighed you down? And there’s videos of you running round with a 55lbs jacket on?
‘And videos with a 100lbs fireman jacket throwing punches, jumping round and shadow boxing?
‘He just talks s***. One thing I learn, when you lose it’s better to be calm and think about stuff before you say it.
‘Don’t just starting saying s*** because it won’t go right for you. I’m sure talking about Mark Breland in public, he regrets that now.
‘Because he’s spoken publicly about it, he might have to follow through [and fire him].’
Wilder hit out at his corner for throwing in the towel during the fight, while his head coach Jay Deas said it was Mark Breland who made the call to stop the bout.
The American said he would considering axing Breland, but has since decided to keep the coach on his team.
Fury responded to Wilder’s comments this week , saying: ‘In every fighter’s mind there’s got to be a reason why they’ve lost,’ Fury said.
‘It can never be the simple fact I wasn’t good enough on the night and lost to the better guy.
‘It’s always got to be, “the camp was wrong, it was the trainer’s fault, it was my suit, it was my toe”. It was always something’s a problem.
With me if I’m injured or whatever the problem is it’s like, “okay, the performance wasn’t great but I’m going to move on and crack on”.
‘I beat him the first time, beat him the second time, I’ll surely will beat him the third time.’
