  • CAN SEE THE WHYTES OF HIS EYES

    Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin faced off ahead of their May 2 bout in Manchester.

  • WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?

    Nigel Benn can't believe Deontay Wilder's heavy costume excuse after the American's defeat to Tyson Fury.

    The former middleweight and super-middleweight world champ, 56, said: “Wilder [blaming his] outfit, really?

    “He’s come out with an outlandish outfit, what the hell were you thinking?

    “What the hell! It’s something Gary Glitter would were. That’s no excuse.

    “I think Fury would do the same thing again.

    “The confident and believe Fury has got in himself, well done mate, take my hat off to you.”

  • CALL YOURSELF A CHAMP?

    Anthony Joshua cannot call himself heavyweight champion of the world until he has beaten Tyson Fury, the Gyspy King has claimed.

    A ferocious eight-round beating of Deontay Wilder last month earned Fury the WBC title belt and maintained his unbeaten professional career.

    He told This Morning: “I've already been the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world when I beat Klitschko, I had all of the belts.

    “So as far as I'm concerned, Anthony Joshua has only got my leftovers because I never lost those belts. I had to vacate them for mental health problems. They're my belts.

    “How can you claim to be the champion when you haven't beaten the champion?”

  • NOT JOSHING AROUND

    ANTHONY JOSHUA has revealed how he got over the demons he battled following his shock loss to Andy Ruiz Jr.

    Speaking on the Running The Show podcast in association with Lucozade, AJ said: “It's one thing being physically prepared, but it's not just about the physicality.

    “You can put 10 of the world’s strongest men in here (the ring), but mentally they might not be designed or trained.

    “No matter how many things people throw at you or how many obstacles you have to overcome, it’s just another task to get over.

    “With the Ruiz fight I had to block out everything emotional and see it as a task where losing wasn’t an option.”

  • ANTI-CLIMAX

    Fury opened up about the feeling of being a world champion.

    He told This Morning: “It's almost an anti-climax.

    “You elevate yourself in mind and body to go and box at his level and nothing means anything apart from the fight.

    “Then you win and it's like, 'Oh well, I've done that' and I slide down the other side.

    “But I feel fine, I've learned over the years to maintain the mental health problems and to train on a daily basis and keep a routine.

    “It takes me about two weeks to get back to normal after a massive fight.

    “It is a rollercoaster of emotions, to be away from the kids and the school run and the screaming and shouting, it takes a lot to come back to that and get re-adjusted to that after three months away.”
