Dillian Whyte was a bit nostalgic, and after calling him Wilder the Puddler these days, who loves to bark a lot but can’t bite, he decided to remember an old story. Whyte didn’t say the date, but he said Wladimir Klitschko was a world champion. Wilder was at training camp with Klitschko in 2012. Probably at the time, so about 8 years ago.
Whyte said he and Deontay Wilder were at Klitschko’s training camp as a sparring partner and he saw when Wilder being sent to the canvas by Klitschko. In fact, Whyte said it wasn’t just a “smooth” knock, knocked him unconcious on the canvas. That’s why Whyte never fought Wilder Klistchko in a real fight because he knew he would get it.
“I’ve seen him getting knocked out. Wladimir knocked him out. He knew what happened, he had his hands up. He was roughing Wlad up, bringing the smoke, and he was going wild. Wlad backs up, changes his footwork, feinting, feinting, jabs to the body, throws that feint jab, left hook. Wilder had his hands up, he was gone. It wasn’t no knockdown, he was knocked cold. Properly twitching as well. That’s why they probably didn’t want him to fight Wlad.” – said Whyte to Sky Sports.
It is not excluded that this happened. Because not one of Klitschko’s sparring partners came to the canvas. But obviously the bitterness also speaks from Whyte, even though he is Wilder’s mandatory challenger, he doesn’t know when he will get a chance at the title match. Wilder told Whyte that he was not dealing with him for the time being, but watch out for what he wanted because he loves mandatory title protection. For him, the mandatory challengers are like flies in his ears that he gets rid of when the time comes. And the time comes, don’t get Whyte out until then, but he also said he won’t lose in such safety matches. Wilder told to Whyte: Do not be cowardly and take risks, choose tough opponents like him, if you had done so before, you would have had the chance to fight him for a long time.
