DILLIAN WHYTE is so desperate to fight Deontay Wilder he says he would even fight the American in his own HOME.
The Bodysnatcher gave his career the shot in the arm it needed when he KO’d Alexander Povetkin in their rematch last month.Dillian Whyte won back the WBC Diamond belt – and now wants to finally get his hands on Deontay Wilder[/caption]
Whyte spent more than 1,000 days as the WBC’s mandatory challenger – but never got the title shot before Wilder lost the belt to Tyson Fury.
But he has put himself firmly back into world title contention following his sensational stoppage of Povetkin.
However there is clearly still bad blood for Whyte and he is desperate to finally nail the Wilder scrap recently labelling the Bronze Bomber a ‘fraud clown’.
Speaking to Sky Sports, the 32-year-old said: “I think the public demand for the Wilder fight is already there, to be honest.
“There’s a lot of demand for it already. But fighting in America doesn’t hurt and it does increase the profile and the interest, and a different fan base and following. It would be good to get a big fight in America in the summer.
“I’ll fight Wilder in Alabama, if that’s what is going to make him feel secure and safe enough to take the fight. If he wants, he can have the home judges, his hometown, whatever. I don’t care.
“I’d even fight him in his own home, the kitchen, the garage, the garden, wherever. I just want to get hold of him and hurt him.
“I’m going to go to fight, I’m going to give it my all, and be the best I can be. I always come to fight and leave it all in the ring.

“I’m coming for war. I’m coming to put on a destructive display. Wherever the fight is, whatever is going on, I’m cool.”
Wilder, 35, is yet to fight since his first career defeat to Fury, and was signed to a trilogy bout with the Gypsy King having drawn the first.
But the immediate rematch clause expired in October, with the Bronze Bomber now fighting his case in court.
Meanwhile, Fury, 32, has signed to fight Anthony Joshua, 31, in an undisputed title decider.
