Dillian Whyte responds to our Instagram post regarding Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev and it appears the Brixton ’Bodysnatcher’ is not a fan of the fight
Here at Seconds Out we try to extract the positives from most situations, a philosophy regularly tested by the roller coaster world of boxing. So when the Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev fight was officially announced a couple of days ago, rather than dwell on the underwhelming nature of a fight we all knew was coming finally being set in stone, we decided it would be more interesting to extol the undeniable virtues of the Bulgarian challenger. Well we say ’undeniable’, but it appears that WBC Interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte feels the unified world title clash is not only uninspiring but actually risible.
Responding to a post on our Instagram account, that read "Make no mistake, Kubrat Pulev is a serious fighter", and which urged people to read a story on Pulev’s qualities, Whyte responded with "Ahahahhahahahaha Hahahahahhahaha who are they fooling."
The Brixton ’Bodysnatcher’ recently solidified his own next contest, with Russian dangerman Alexander Povetkin, so we asked him if he believes the veteran former WBA ruler was better than Pulev and, if so, why. Whyte has yet to respond but we did only ask a few hours ago, so we plan to keep you updated.
