Dillian Whyte has waded into the controversial decision from the Saturday night fight between Joseph Parker and Hughie Fury, making a rather spectacular claim about the undefeated heavyweight champion.
Using Twitter, Londoner Whyte tweeted that he felt that Parker was not as good as people often made out, labelling the undefeated New Zealander 'rubbish'.
“You are rubbish @joeboxerparker please make this fight @EddieHearn @SkySportsBoxing #RUNBISH,” the 29-year-old said.
The London based boxer is not the only one who felt the bout should have gone the way of Hughie Fury.
Rather predictably, Hughie, whose fight record now stands at 20-1, has also decided to state that the scoring for the fight was all wrong.
“I don’t think Parker won the fight. The scoring was way off. I thought I was landing. The judges have scored it and I don’t know what happened.
"I thought I was ahead on the scorecards and I don’t understand. I thought I won,” the 23-year-old said.

A case of Whyte trying to get back onto the boxing scene? Or a legit tweet seeking the chance to fight Parker?
As for Whyte’s claim that he could beat Parker in a bout, he may have to concentrate on his reported re-match with nemesis Derek Chisora.
The 33-year-old said in Liverpool that he was looking forward to being back in the ring following a lengthy layoff.
"I'm looking forward to getting back in the ring after a frustrating period of injury, starting in Liverpool next Saturday.
“Then we are going to win the European title in November, and then I'm going to punish that punk Dillian Whyte and move on to a shot at the world title."
Their first fight was an absolute epic, so surely the second would be just as good?
Now that will be worth a watch!
