Dillian Whyte doesn’t pull any punches inside or outside of the ring.
The former WBC interim heavyweight champion was in ferocious form as he dissected South London rival Daniel Dubois’ shock 10th round defeat to Joe Joyce in Westminster on Saturday night.
It was later reported by The Athletic that Dubois suffered a broken orbital socket and nerve damage to his swollen left eye after taking a stiff jab to the injury and dropping to one knee, where he was counted out by referee Ian John Lewis.
But Whyte was on full blast in the immediate aftermath and could not mask his derision following the fancied Dubois’ surprising defeat.
“They ain’t got nothing to say right now. Man’s out here quitting. Shit, man’s out here quitting in mid-fight,” Whyte said on Instagram.
“They were saying they wanna fight me and they were gonna knock me out. One thing with me, no quit, straight warrior. If I’m losing, I’m getting knocked out. Straight warrior, straight warrior. And these cowards wanna mention [me].”
After scoring two knockdowns and seeming in full control, Whyte suffered an out of the blue fifth-round KO defeat against Alexander Povetkin in August. Their rematch is set for late January or early February after a November 21 date was postponed following Povetkin’s positive test for Covid-19. Whyte had previously been linked with a fight against the touted Dubois.
