The Brixton heavyweight contender is not a fan of the WBC world champion
Dillian Whyte wants Tyson Fury to smash Deontay Wilder’s face in when they meet on December 1.
The 30-year-old Brit hopes his fellow countryman will reclaim a portion of the heavyweight crown at the Staples Center in LA next week, after he failed to entice the current champion into a bout with him earlier this year.
The Body Snatcher attempted to secure a fight with Wilder for his WBC title, but was ultimately unsuccessful and has held it against him since.
“I hope Tyson Fury smashes Deontay Wilder’s face in because Deontay Wilder’s a coward,” Whyte told IFLTV.
“Tyson Fury – me and him have had our ups and downs, but he’s not a coward at least.
“I give credit where it’s due, he’s not a coward. He’s stepped up after fighting two pumpkins and has fought Deontay Wilder.
“Deontay Wilder fought one mandatory in three years, Deontay Wilder’s a punk.
“Hopefully Fury beats him. Fury’s British so I’m gonna back him.”
Despite hoping Fury emerges victorious, Whyte has said multiple times in the past that he expects Wilder to retain his title.
The Brixton man has insisted he is sticking with this prediction as the fight draws closer, however refused to rule out the Gypsy King.
Whyte continued: “It’s one of those fights where smart money says Wilder, and heart and courage says Tyson Fury because he’s a bit of a weirdo.
“You might him write him off and he comes and boxes out of his skin. So you never know. Weirdos do weird things.”
