Whyte: Wilder Loves Easy, Inactive Fighters as His Mandatories!

Share the joy

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has continued to verbally lash out at the World Boxing Council and their heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder.

Whyte has been sitting in the number one position in their rankings for over 600 days.

He returns to the ring on July 20th, when he faces undefeated contender Oscar Rivas at The O2 Arena in London.


Wilder is going to take part in a rematch with Luis Ortiz in the fall. Ortiz was stopped by Wilder in ten rounds back in March of 2018.

Whyte has been irate since the start of the year, after the WBC passed him over and made number three rated, Dominic Breazeale, the mandatory challenger.

Wilder demolished Breazeale in the first round. In 2017, Wilder made a mandatory defense against Bermane Stiverne and also blew him away in one round.

“Wilder loves the easy, inactive fighters as his mandatories which is why he’s still avoiding me after more than 600 days as the WBC number one,” Whyte told Talk Sport.

“The two mandatories that Wilder has fought since becoming champion four-and-a-half years ago, Bermane Stiverne and Breazeale, had only fought four opponents between them in nearly six years combined! No wonder neither of them lasted even one round. Shameful, cherry-picked undeserving mandatories.

“Stiverne was gifted his world title shot for being knocked down by and barely beating Derric Rossy (30-10 at the time). Breazeale was given his world title shot for an untelevised fight against Eric Molina, who was coming off a very narrow six-round points victory over the journeyman Terrell Jamal Woods (13-35-7) and serving a worldwide two-year drug ban at the time for failing a test after his fight with Anthony Joshua. He should never have been in the ring never mind involved in a ‘final’ eliminator. You really couldn’t make it up.”
