Professional boxer, Dillian Whyte has laughed off Deontay Wilder's claims that he's 'a liar', saying he has official documents to prove that he tried to force a fight with the WBC champion. According to Sky Sports, Wilder aimed a fresh verbal attack at Whyte, suggesting that the British heavyweight would already have faced him, if he had previously accepted fights against Luis Ortiz or Dominic Breazeale.
British professional boxer, Tyson Fury wants a potential undisputed fight with fellow Briton, Anthony Joshua to take place in Las Vegas, not Saudi Arabia. However, the former heavyweight world champion must first dethrone Deontay Wilder when they clash in their rematch on February 22. Meanwhile, Joshua has to overcome mandatory challengers Kubrat Pulev and Oleksandr Usyk. Should they do so, Fury will target a clash with his domestic rival who regained his three belts from Andy Ruiz Jr last year.
