Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte believes former WBC world champion Deontay Wilder has lost his mind.
Wilder has been out of the ring since suffering a stoppage loss at the hands of Tyson Fury in February 2020.
In the aftermath of the loss, Wilder was very vocal with numerous allegations – including a claim that Fury may have loaded his gloves with weights.
Wilder also terminated former co-trainer Mark Breland. He accused him of being a double-agent and potentially spiking the water bottle that was used between rounds.
“People lose and they do crazy stuff. Why’s the guy posting a picture, wine, glass, candles, and a random gun on the table? With his shirt off, looking like he’s stoned out of his mind. I was thinking, ‘Oof, hopefully he doesn’t blown his own brains out, man.’ The guy clearly is drunk or he’s high or whatever he’s doing there. It’s mad,” Whyte told IFL TV.
“I know he’s allowed to have guns and he shoots a lot of guns, but it’s weird. Maybe he’s just showing people, ‘Don’t worry about me, I’m living life.’”
There have been rumors of Wilder possibly fighting former unified champion Andy Ruiz in the future.
If that fight happens, Whyte is backing Ruiz to come away with the win.
“I think Ruiz would beat Wilder, to be honest. Wilder can’t really box, and Wilder’s lost his mind, man. The guy’s lost his mind, man! I don’t think he’ll ever box again. His mind is completely gone,” Whyte said.
“Gone, gone, gone, gone. If you follow his stories and the pictures he posts and the things he’s been doing and saying, the guy’s lost his mind.”
Whyte is scheduled to return to the ring on March 27th, when he attempts to avenge a knockout loss in a rematch with WBC interim-champion Alexander Povetkin.
