WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has no issue fighting Anthony Joshua in a heavyweight title unification but would be warier now of travelling to Britain, in light of recent events, than he perhaps would have been last year.

That’s according to the Alabama man’s coach, Jay Deas, who believes the case involving Dillian Whyte – the case nobody dare talk about – was “potentially criminal” and a “big, big issue”.

If still interested, you can read about what happened to Whyte in July, days before his July 20 fight against Oscar Rivas, elsewhere. You can also find the UKAD (UK Anti-Doping) letter which exonerated him of any wrongdoing on the day of his most recent fight elsewhere.
