F*** you, every one of them,’ he told IFL TV. The win was a big boost for Price (Picture: Reuters) ‘I’ve taken some stick off them. It’s been off the social media generation up Dave Allen’s arse.’ ‘I’m still here,’ he continued. ‘I’ve just arrived again tonight in a different way. ‘I think the penny finally dropped tonight.

Heavyweight champions Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr shared an interview during the Manny Pacquiao vs Keith Thurman broadcast on Saturday night. The WBC titlist and WBA, IBF & WBO belt-holder gave plenty of respect to one another as they discussed their upcoming bouts and a potential future meeting. Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr are good friends Wilder will make the next defence of his crown in a rematch with Luis Ortiz likely for November. Not long afterwards, Ruiz will jump back into the ring with Anthony Joshua, though there is currently conflict over where this will take place. The Mexican-American told FOX broadcasters: “We’re still in negotiations right now. They’re trying to make us go over there [to the UK]. “We’re trying to make it back over here in New York City. “I think I’d be more comfortable there and we can run it back.” For the past two years, all the talk in the heavyweight division had been gearing towards an undisputed title bout between Wilder and Joshua. However, when this didn’t happen, Wilder instead made his own path by facing Tyson Fury, while AJ was dethroned by Ruiz. Now, Wilder vs Ruiz Jr is the potential undisputed clash, something Deontay sees as an exciting prospect. The ‘Bronze Bomber’ explained: “It’s been this way for a long time, since Lennox Lewis. “Since there’s been a undisputed, undefeated, unified heavyweight champion. That sounds nice.” Deontay Wilder holds the WBC heavyweight title Wilder then directly addressed Ruiz and said: “I’m just happy that, what you did, you brought us a different kind of energy to the heavyweight division. “You brought a new face. “They had three dragons and to come in when people doubted you – because they had less information about you. “You go and do the unexpected and just changed it all up, I’m glad.” Andy Ruiz Jr is now the WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Ruiz concluded the conversation when asked if he would entertain the idea of an undisputed clash in the future. “Yeah of course, me and him, we’re in the same team so I’ve just gotta take [care of] business. “We’ve gotta get Anthony Joshua, I’ve gotta beat him and we’ll move onto the next.” You can catch WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder in the flesh at the famous ICC Arena in Birmingham on July 27 at the marquee event of his UK tour with Showfighter and Gold Star. talkSPORT will be in attendance so click HERE or more information on the event and get your tickets HERE.

DILLIAN WHYTE scraped himself off the deck to step over Oscar Rivas and take a giant leap toward a heavyweight world title shot. The 31-year-old Brixton ace dominated the Colombian in the WBC interim title bout until he was flattened by an uppercut in round nine. Dillian Whyte outpointed Oscar Rivas at the O2 Arena in London But the rock-hard Body Snatcher clung on to his No1 ranking and earned a May 2020 mandatory shot at the belt currently owned by Deontay Wilder after convincing the judges with scores of 115-112 twice and 116-11 all to the Brit. The victor roared: “This is my 27 professional fight and he’s undefeated and has beaten some tough guys. “I wanted to have a war. He’s a great fighter and I have a lot of respect for him. “I went to move, crossed my leg and got caught. But I got straight back up and won every round after that. “We’ll see what happens. A lot of things get said in boxing but not a lot happens. Dillian Whyte claimed the WBC interim heavyweight title Whyte took control in the opening stages with an expert double jab Rivas came into the fight unbeaten in 26 contests “Mandatory could mean I have to wait another 600 days! “We are looking to fight November or December time after a rest. Everyone has written me off but I keep showing up and outboxing top fighters.” Tony Bellew, a close friend of Whyte’s was yelling “use you brain” from the first bell and he showed plenty of ring IQ early on, hacking away at Rivas’ torso with hooks to the ribs. But Colombian-born Rivas was not in London to make up the numbers and warned Whyte of his power and ‘Kaboom’ nickname with a few inaccurate haymakers. Whyte was pinging Rivas back with a ramrod double jab and, when he added a right hand into the equation, Rivas was wobbled. Whyte was down in round nine after a right-uppercut and left hook combination It was the third time Whyte has been to the canvas in his career The Body Snatcher raced in to get the finish but smothered his work in the process, allowing the Canada-based slugger, 32, to recover, Rivas, a standout amateur who beat Anthony Joshua slayer Andy Ruiz Jr before turning pro, proved he had a chin for the paid ranks by weathering the storm and seeing the start of the third. Whyte looked for his trademark left hook twice in the fifth but Rivas had done his homework and escaped both. But he weighed a stone lighter than the Brit on Friday and even his accurate shots failed to make a dent in the 18st banger. Rivas did land a flush one-two in the sixth but again his battle-hardened resilience helped him brush the beatings off. Whyte had his partisan crowd roaring in the seventh when he capped off a crisp one-two with a scything uppercut through Rivas’ guard but the ballsy visitor slugged his way back into the session toward the closing bell. After being dropped Whyte recovered to push back his opponent [article-rail-section title=”Most Read in Boxing ” posts_category=”331″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”popular” /] But it was Whyte who was ambushed in the ninth round when Rivas flattened him with a rocketing right uppercut that sent him barrelling into the ropes and the canvas and clinging on for the bell. Whyte somehow ended the ninth on the front foot and stepped straight back on the gas in the tenth, clobbering the underdog with a variety of power punches. The gladiators touched gloves out of respect before starting the final sessions but that was as gentle as it got, as they slugged it out to the scorecards.
