Dillian Whyte has claimed that he's seen Deontay Wilder get knocked out, with the WBC mandatory challenger saying he saw the Bronze Bomber 'twitching' after a shot from Wladimir Klitschko.
At some point in the future Whyte could face the Bronze Bomber for the WBC title, although that will only be the case if the American keeps hold of the title, but it's unlikely to happen until 2021.
Before that Whyte is concentrating on his past meetings, and the time he saw Widler get knocked out in training. The British heavyweight was talking about Wilder's time sparring with then world champion Wladimir Klitschko.
"I've seen him [Wilder] getting knocked out, Wladimir knocked him out," Whyte told Sky Sports.
"He 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."
Both Whyte and Wilder, as well as Anthony Joshua, had stints sparring with Klitschko in his training camp in Ukraine whilst Tyson Fury has also spoken about being in camp with the Ukrainian but never actually sparred with the former champion.
Whyte and Wilder should have been on course to fight each other in the past, with the Brit being number one contender for some time without getting a shot at the champion.
The Brit then became mandatory challenger last year after beating Oscar Rivas but it was temporarily stripped from him after an irregular doping test.
Since then he's been reinstated but with the American due to face Fury in a rematch next month and a third match is reportedly already agreed between the pair, no matter what happens in the second fight.
The WBC have said that Whyte won't get his chance until 2021 and he'll need to continue being active and winning before then.
Will Whyte get his chance to win the title from Wilder?
