Dillian Whyte Calls Deontay Wilder An ‘Absolute Weapon’ After His ‘Borat’ English Accent

Dillian Whyte has mocked Deontay Wilder after his shocking attempt to do an English accent.

The 33-year-old Alabama-born boxer was trying his best effort to mock Anthony Joshua, but his accent sounded closer to Borat than it did an English one.

Whyte took to Twitter to post the interview spliced with footage of Sacha Baron Cohen's beloved character, as well as calling the Bronze Bomber an "absolute weapon."

The 31-year-old boxer has been eyeing up his shot for the American's WBC Heavyweight Championship, with the World Boxing Council wanting him to fight Tyson Fury first.

Wilder, meanwhile, will be taking on Dominic Breazeale on 18th May at the Barclays Center in New York City for the Heavyweight Championship.

Whyte has already said that he "wouldn't be surprised" if Breazeale defeated Wilder in their bout.

"Deontay Wilder, I wouldn't want to be one of his handlers or his manager because they must have nightmares and headaches watching him fight all the time, because he's not good at any one thing. He's not a good boxer," he continued.

"I wouldn't be surprised if Breazeale beats him, because Breazeale seems to be tough and he seems like he can take a punch."

However, the Body Snatcher admitted that he wouldn't be surprised if the Bronze Bomber's punching power bested the 33-year-old California-born boxer.

"I just see Wilder keeping out of the way of him and drawing him on to punches and just tagging him, because Breazeale is not very good defensively," he told Sky Sports (H/T Boxing Scene).

"He takes a good punch and he's got a lot of heart, and he will try to come to fight, but I just think Wilder using his speed against him and biding his time against him, drawing him out and then knocking him over mid-fight."

Wilder or Breazeale?
