Dillian White has slammed Deontay Wilder and labelled him a “crackhead” for comments Wilder made about Dominic Breazeale suggesting he could kill the 33-year-old in their upcoming fight.
Wilder will take on Brezeale in Brooklyn on May 18 in the mandatory defence of his WBC title and has made a number of disrespectful comments in the build-up.
The Bronze Bomber told Breazeale to “make some funeral arrangements”.
White claimed that Wilder must have been on drugs.
“It’s an easy fight. Deontay Wilder will bash Dominic Breazeale up. Breazeale’s scared of Wilder,” Whyte told IFL TV. “I watched the press conference, the face of Breazeale, he was shaking in his boots. Wilder again saying, ‘I can hear your heartbeat. I’m a killer, you’ve never been in front of a killer before’. What are you talking about? This is boxing, you’re not a killer. You’re not some hitman. It’s boxing. The guy is stupid. Wilder is a crackhead. Crackheads say crackhead-like things and do crackhead-like things. They’re desperate, they do desperate stuff, say desperate stuff and that’s why Wilder is a crackhead. He’s scared. He needs to say these things to himself to get his confidence up, he’s basically talking to himself.”
Wilder’s team claimed the nasty brawl that ensued took place after Breazeale mocked Wilder’s disable daughter. However, Whyte thinks Wilder is saying such controversial statements because he is worried.
