Dillian Whyte was not impressed with Andy Ruiz Jr’s comeback fight against Chris Arreola on Saturday night.
The former heavyweight champion returned to the ring and ended the occasion with a unanimous decision victory, despite being knocked down in round two.
It was his first fight back since the rematch defeat to Anthony Joshua in December 2019.
Most observers felt Ruiz Jr did enough to earn the win over Arreola, regardless of the knockdown, but Whyte believes differently.
He’s exchanged plenty of trash talk with Mexican heavyweight in the media over the past year as negotiations for a potential bout between them last year came to nothing.
Whyte told iFL TV: “These guys make me laugh man.
“These guys saying this about me, saying that about me – and you can’t stop Chris Arreola.
“I thought Chris Arreola won the fight to be honest, I had Chris Arreola winning by split decision.
“And I’m not just saying that because I don’t like that guy.
“If I fight Chris Arreola tomorrow I’d knock Chris Arreola out in five rounds.
“That’s what I should do, I should just go to America and fight Chris Arreola.
“Just to knock him out, to show Adam Kownacki and Andy Ruiz that they’re garbage and they need to take my name out their mouth.
“He showed Andy Ruiz his level, that’s his level. I would knock out Chris Arreola.”
Whyte has also remarked about two of his other heavyweight rivals recently.
The ‘Body Snatcher’ made comments on Deontay Wilder’s return to training.
He reposted the picture of the former WBC champion to his Instagram story and mocked the size of his legs with the caption: “No leg days.”
Whyte added in the iFL interview: “His legs are even skinner than they were before, it’s mad.”
Following his rematch win over Alexander Povetkin in March, Whyte reclaimed his position as WBC ‘interim’ belt-holder, meaning he’s seemingly in line to become mandatory challenger once again.
Whyte concluded: “One thing I will say, if Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury doesn’t happen, the WBC must order Fury to fight me.
“According to Fury I’m an easy fight for him, so what better fight for him to take than take an easy fight against a nobody?
“Fury ain’t gonna fight me, Fury’s gonna talk s***, he ain’t gonna fight me.
“He’s gonna talk s***, f***ing s*** c***.”
