Outrageous British heavyweight Dillian Whyte made his U.S. debut at Pinnacle Arena in Omaha, NE Saturday and lived to his nickname of “Body Snatcher”.
Before Terence Crawford flashed KO power downstairs in his hometown, the brash Whyte (21-1, 16KOs) made factory beef out of a hapless Malcolm Tann, dropping him four times in route to a 3rd round stoppage.
Immediately, Whyte once again went after who he refers to as ‘Beyonce Wilder,’ given the WBC heavyweight champion’s proclivity to sing about a fight rather than bring it.
Whyte’s colorful promoter Eddie Hearn has offered a reported $3 million to Deontay Wilder and his team, often clowning the unbeaten champion on Twitter and Instagram to no avail.
After mugging Tann, the 29 year-old Londoner sat down with Sky Sports Reporter Andy Scott to talk about Wilder, along with the possibility of facing New York’s own Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller.
“Wilder don’t want none of this, he’s a fake champion,” said Whyte, who has a history of ugly social media drama with Wilder. “I’ll cut him in half with that body of his. Eddie [Hearn] just has to get me that fight. I’ll be back in camp next week ready to fight again in October.”
When talk turned to Miller, Whyte really got animated, as the two loud-mouthed and charismatic heavyweights would provide instant theater during the promotion.
“Listen, like I said, if Big Baby Miller want it he can get it. I’ve got the milk and I’ll feed him,” Whyte sneered, while making it clear Big Baby has to come to London. “You suck! Change your diaper! You can’t sell out Brooklyn, so you have to come to England. Sky Sports and Matchroom is where it’s at for heavyweight boxing.”
