Dillian Whyte ‘destroys Deontay Wilder’ and Anthony Joshua ‘absolutely takes him to school’ says promoter Eddie Hearn – The Sun

EDDIE HEARN reckons Dillian Whyte "destroys Deontay Wilder" and Anthony Joshua "absolutely takes him to school".

It comes after WBC champion Tyson Fury, 31, backed Wilder, 34, to beat the British pair with ease.

But Hearn, who promotes both Joshua, 30, and Whyte, 32, begs to differ, giving the Bronze Bomber no chance against either.

He said: "You can’t take what Tyson says [seriously]. Most of the time he’s just having a laugh.

"He’s just trying to provoke a reaction. If that’s what he thinks, maybe he’s right. I don’t think he’s right.

"I think Dillian Whyte destroys Deontay Wilder and I think AJ absolutely takes him to school and knocks him out with ease in a couple of rounds.

"But he’s dangerous and Tyson Fury done a great job dismantling him. Hopefully he does the same in the rematch."

Fury dominated Wilder in February, twice flooring him on the way to a seventh round stoppage.

They are contracted to a third fight, targeted for the end of the year, with the Gypsy King then hoping to face Joshua in an undisputed title decider having agreed a two-fight deal with him.

But Fury warns all it take is one shot from Wilder to scupper the plans for a Battle of Britain, as he insists Wilder is still the division's No2 fighter.

Fury told iFL TV: "Wilder beats Joshua, Whyte, Miller. Are you joking? The Bronze Bomber, one touch on their faces and they’re gone forever. Goodnight forever.

"He’d do to Whyte and Joshua what he did to Breazeale. He will put them to sleep, easy. They’ve got no defence and walk down punches.

"What are they going to do? Walk him down with no footwork? You won’t walk a man like that down, he’ll punch holes in you."
