Deontay Wilder Revealed What Happened In Sparring With Klitschko After Whyte And Fury’s Claims
Deontay Wilder insisted that he held his own against Wladimir Klitschko amid Dillian Whyte and Tyson Fury's claims that he was knocked out in sparring.
The 34-year-old WBC champ famously sparred with Ukrainian legend Klitschko and rare footage from the session has made the rounds on social media this month.
But Wilder, who will clash with Fury in a hotly-anticipated rematch next month, slammed the "mysterious untold story" of him apparently getting knocked out by Klitschko.
The 'Bronze Bomber' said in 2017: "He said that me and Klitschko sparred on various occasions, and in fact that Klitschko knocked me out cold and dropped me with a body shot?
"Keep in mind that Klitschko hasn't thrown a body shot in eleven damn years.
"All of a sudden it had to be me. Why me? I had to be dropped in sparring.
"I was only in the Klitschko camp one time and I held my own very well with everybody.
"All of a sudden this mysterious untold story of me and Klitschko and he knocked me out.
"C'mon man. Please, people with b***h tendencies."
WBC interim champ Dillian Whyte made an outrageous claim that Klitschko 'knocked Wilder out cold' and the KO artist was "twitching as well."
And Fury backed up Whyte's claims and suggested that the 'Body Snatcher' would not "tell lies for no reason."
The 'Gypsy King' explained: "I know it to be true. I don't know of Dillian Whyte to tell lies for no reason.
"Dillian was probably there... he was there, actually.
"And I've heard it from other people apart from Dillian Whyte. People who are close to Klitschko and had nothing to do with it."
Wilder and Fury will once again face each other on 22nd February for the WBC championship and vacant Ring title in Las Vegas.
