Dillian Whyte reveals why Deontay Wilder lost to Tyson Fury

Dillian Whyte has said that the reason why Deontay Wilder lost to Tyson Fury is that his "boxing skills are terrible".

Fury and Wilder clashed in Las Vegas in a second bout after their first ended in a split draw.

The second bouted ended in the seventh round after Wilder, who was knocked down twice, had his team throw in the towel. The move saw him lose his WBC title to Tyson Fury.

“You’ve got to get him on the back foot, you’ve got to get him thinking and trying to use his brain, because, from a boxing standpoint, he hasn’t got a brain to use. His boxing skills are terrible.

“If you can evade his power punches and back him up, then he doesn’t know what to do, he gets lost, and that’s what I’ve been saying all this time,” Whyte told Sky Sports.
