“Temporary” WBC heavyweight champion dillian white (27-1, 18 KO) denied the words of compatriot and full-weight title holder Tyson fury (30-0-1, 21 KO), who claims to have surpassed him in sparring.
Dillian insists that in fact it was he who beat and even repeatedly dropped fury in training matches.
“Well, Tyson and I sparred, and I beat him up. I sent him down a lot of times — ” white said in an interview with Sky Sports. — So it’s simple. He can say whatever he wants, but if I’m really such an easy opponent, why doesn’t he want to fight me? Even before the rematch with Wilder, he said that “When I beat Wilder, I will give Dillian white his chance to fight for the title.” In short, he’s just talking. I’m tired of this shit.”
“In General, let fury tell you himself,” Dillian continues. — I’m not one of those people who will take out the trash and trumpet about what is happening in the hall. But Tyson can tell you guys what really happened. I don’t want to brag about how I did this and did that. But he started telling me how he beat me in the gym, and so on. Although in fact, there was nothing like that.”
“I have already said that I give fury credit for his cool mentality. He did a great job, inspired a lot of people, and so on, “white says,” but as far as Boxing is concerned, I’m not going to sit around and ooze sympathy. He has a title, and I want to fight him. So I don’t care about the light. War is war. Let’s go!»
