"He [Wilder] knew what happened. He had his hands up. He was roughing Wlad up, bringing the smoke, and he was going wild. Wlad backs up, changes his footwork, feinting, feinting, jabs to the body, throws that feint jab, left hook. Wilder had his hands up, he was gone.

"It wasn't no knockdown, he was knocked cold. Properly twitching as well. That's why they probably didn't want him to fight Wlad, because Wlad was going to fight him as a pro and Wilder never fancied it the whole time," the 31-year-old Brixton fighter added.

"I was just trying to learn, and then I saw him knocking people out. I was thinking 'you ain't f**king knocking me out.' I went in there and I went after him.

"He broke [Sam] Sexton's nose. I said 'nah. Woah, you're not knocking me out. I'm coming'. I went in there and started roughing him up and having a proper fight with him. I got sent home for that."

Of course, Wilder lost his WBC heavyweight title in February when he suffered a crushing stoppage defeat to Fury in Las Vegas.

Whyte, meanwhile, last fought on the undercard of Andy Ruiz Jr vs. Anthony Joshua II, earning a points victory over Mariusz Wach to move to 27-1.

He's set to face Russian contender Alexander Povetkin in the summer. The bout was originally scheduled for May 2 until the coronavirus crisis postponed the heavyweight clash.
