Dillian Whyte is looking to fight Deontay Wilder next and says he will even do it in his home state of Alabama.
After Wilder suffered a seventh-round TKO loss to Tyson Fury in February of 2020, he wanted the trilogy to happen. However, Fury will face Joshua and Wilder is left without an opponent, but Whyte is hoping he can face the KO artist next.
Not only does Whyte want to fight Deontay Wilder next, but he says he will fight him in the United States in the summer, and would even fight him in Alabama.
“I think the public demand for the Wilder fight is already there, to be honest,” Whyte told Sky Sports (via Boxingscene). “There’s a lot of demand for it already. But fighting in America doesn’t hurt and it does increase the profile and the interest, and a different fan base and following. It would be good to get a big fight in America in the summer.
“I’ll fight Wilder in Alabama, if that’s what is going to make him feel secure and safe enough to take the fight,” Whyte said. “If he wants, he can have the home judges, his hometown, whatever. I don’t care. I’d even fight him in his own home, the kitchen, the garage, the garden, wherever. I just want to get hold of him and hurt him.
“I’m going to go to fight, I’m going to give it my all, and be the best I can be,” White continued. “I always come to fight and leave it all in the ring. I’m coming for war. I’m coming to put on a destructive display. Wherever the fight is, whatever is going on, I’m cool.”
Dillian Whyte vs. Deontay Wilder certainly makes sense to happen this year. The winner would also be in line to face either Fury or Joshua after they have their two fights.
