Deontay Wilder 'wiped the floor' with David Haye during sparring session despite Brit heavyweight 'catching him clean'

DEONTAY WILDER destroyed David Haye in sparring as he prepared to fight Tyson Fury, claims retired British heavyweight Richard Towers.

WBC champ Wilder, 32, is chasing a unification bout with Anthony Joshua.

And Towers believes the American can cause huge problems for 28-year-old AJ after seeing him run rings around Haye, 37, in 2013.

The Sheffield puncher told Boxing News: “Me and Deontay are friends – we sparred in Sheffield, London, even my kitchen.

"We’re very close so we’d go easy. But I remember him just throwing a right hand and not meaning to put anything into it, the speed – until you get in there you don’t realise – and that’s the same for his power.

"His chin, I’ve hit him clean on the chin, and watched David Haye catch him clean on the gym – he wiped the floor with David.”

The 38-year-old added: "You can’t make one mistake with Deontay because he hits that hard – he’s more agile than any big man I’ve seen.
