Deontay Wilder: 'I gave Dillian Whyte 4 chances to compete for the title, it is his fault to refused'

Heavyweight WBC champion Deontay Wilder explained in detail why the match between him and Diliian Whyte has yet to take place.

Deontay Wilder has now chosen the opponent for the next two encounters, Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury. Although Dillian Whyte and manager Eddie Hearn believe that Dillian Whyte deserves to compete with Deontay Wilder because Dillian Whyte has won the title of candidate selected by WBC for over 600 days.

After a successful belt defense against Dominic Breazeale, Deontay Wilder signed Luis Ortiz for a confrontation in the fall of 2019 and Tyson Fury for the rematch is expected in early 2020. This also means that Dillian Whyte will have to wait until the summer of 2020 as soon as possible to compete for the WBC green belt.

In the last interview, Deontay Wilder revealed that he gave Dillian Whyte many opportunities to compete for the Dillian Whyte title that did not agree. “After all, Dillian Whyte was able to have a chance to compete for the title. I told Dillian Whyte that he had two options. One is that he signed a match with PBC (Premier Boxing Champions) and when he arrived in the US, we could organize the match. Dillian Whyte refused and it was the first chance. "

“My second choice is that he has to challenge Luis Ortiz. I told Dillian Whyte, "You are on the line with Luis Ortiz that you have the opportunity to compete for a title from me, that is an endorsement." But everyone knows my personality, I promise to do it. How did Dillian Whyte choose? He refused to compete with Luis Ortiz. That is the second chance.

“Then the WBC itself asked Dillian Whyte to fight Luis Ortiz, and he once again disagreed with the deal - it was a third chance. I don't want people to sympathize with Dillian Whyte because I think this is his fault”  the unbeatable puncher said.

“I want everyone to know that I gave Dillian Whyte and Eddie Hearn a fourth chance. I told Eddie Hearn that if Dillian Whyte wanted to get the WBC belt from me, he had to fight the Anthony Joshua first”.

Although Deontay Wilder's request was very clear, Dillian Whyte would probably have difficulty competing with Anthony Joshua because Eddie Hearn always prioritized Anthony Joshua. And if Anthony Joshua succeeds in regaining championship belts from Andy Ruiz, perhaps the Matchroom manager will find a way to arrange for the superman match between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
