HEAVYWEIGHT contender Dillian Whyte isn’t exactly backward in coming forward when passing comment on his heavyweight rivals.

The WBC silver champion, who is set to rematch Dereck Chisora on December 22 in London, has an interest in next weekend’s WBC world heavyweight title fight between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury and would, he says, quite like to see his fellow Brit do a number on the heavy-handed American. (That’s the polite way of saying it.)

“I hope Tyson Fury smashes Deontay Wilder’s face in because Deontay Wilder’s a coward,” Whyte told iFL TV.
