Whyte Doubts Wilder Will Fight Again: He’s a Coward and a Disgrace!

Back in February, Wilder lost his WBC title when he was stopped in by Tyson Fury in the seventh round of their rematch at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Wilder exercised an immediate rematch clause, which would force a third meeting. The trilogy fight was postponed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic – and now there is no telling if the third bout will ever take place, as Fury and his handlers claim the rematch clause has expired.

On Saturday, Wilder took to social media and released a video where the boxer made some very wild accusations.

Wilder alleged that Fury had loaded his gloves with an “egg weight” and also manipulated his gloves in the first contest in December 2018, which ended in a controversial draw.

He also made allegations against former co-trainer Mark Breland.

Wilder called Breland “disloyal” and in a separate interview made claims that he felt the veteran trainer may have spiked his water.

In the rematch, it was Breland who threw in the towel to save Wilder from further punishment.

Wilder parted ways with Breland a few weeks ago.

After listening to the allegations, Whyte has serious doubts that Wilder will ever fight again.

“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 told Sky Sports.

“I didn’t give one excuse after my defeat. I went straight back into training and started working on what I did wrong.”
