Dillian Whyte has threatened to embarrass Deontay Wilder, saying he will share official WBC documents that show he agreed to fight the American.
Wilder claims that Whyte backed away from fighting him on numerous occasions by avoiding final eliminators against Dominic Breazeale and Luis Ortiz.
But in a recent interview, Whyte now claims that he will share official WBC documents which show that he agreed to a final eliminator against Breazeale, with a shot at Wilder following that fight.
‘The Body Snatcher’ said:
"Deontay Wilder needs to relax and behave himself. The WBC need to speak to him because I’ll start publishing documents and then he’ll be really embarrassed."

Whyte has been waiting for a title shot against Wilder since 2018 but has been seemingly avoided by Wilder’s team in favour of fights against Breazeale, Ortiz and Tyson Fury.
Whyte holds the WBC heavyweight interim belt, meaning he is the number one challenger to Wilder’s long-held WBC belt.
But the fighter has been told he must wait until February 2021 for a shot against Wilder, as the American is currently set to defend his title against Tyson Fury on February 22.
The Brixton man says he wants Wilder to be his next fight:
"I want to fight Deontay Wilder, that’s who I want to fight. I don’t care about no one else apart from him, and he needs to stop being a coward."
He also gives some solid justifications for why he should be the man to face Wilder next:
"I’ve got a better resume than him.
"I’ve beaten more world champions than him… and I’ve been trying to chase him for a million days now."
A fight between Whyte and Wilder would surely be a highly-anticipated one, which would put Wilder’s undefeated record on the line if he can overcome Britain’s Tyson Fury first.
Whyte would provide a stern test to Wilder, as he has beaten numerous accomplished fighters during his career.
He beat former WBO world champion Joseph Parker in 2018 and has since gone on to beat Dereck Chisora, Oscar Rivas and Mariusz Wach.
Whyte’s only professional defeat was against Anthony Joshua back in 2015, with Joshua winning by TKO.
