Heavyweight rival Dillian Whyte has lashed out following Deontay Wilder's latest conspiracy-laden rant on Instagram.
Speaking with Sky Sports News, Dillian Whyte expressed his disgust with Deontay Wilder's apparent lack of professionalism since his first loss back in February to Tyson Fury in their Las Vegas rematch.
An unimpressed Whyte stated: "I don't think we'll see him in the ring ever again. He's a coward and a disgrace.
"The behaviour he's shown and the way he's acted, blaming everyone apart from himself, getting rid of the only person in his corner who knows anything about boxing? It's weird."
Whyte, who suffered his own crushing defeat at the hands of Alexander Povetkin back in August, compared his post-fight actions with Wilder's: "I didn't give one excuse after my defeat. I went straight back into training and started working on what I did wrong."
Whyte spent over 1,000 days as mandatory challenger for the WBC title previously held by Wilder, who seemed to have no interest in facing the British heavyweight. Perhaps they will face off at some point down the line, but for now, Whyte will be looking to earn his revenge against Povetkin in their rematch this November.
