DILLIAN WHYTE has slammed former heavyweight world champ David Haye as the 'biggest bully in boxing'.
The Brixton banger is fuming after Haye slammed him for 'targetting the weak guy'.
That comment relates to Haye claiming Whyte chased a fight with him after his second devastating loss to Tony Bellew.
That stoppage defeat proved the end of the line for Haye who quit boxing just weeks after.
Haye says that Whyte calling him out when he was 'busted up and concussed said a lot about Dillian'.
But Whyte, who recently saw his rematch against Alexander Povetkin postponed after the Russian was hospitalised with coronavirus, says he wanted a showdown with Haye as soon as he returned to the sport in 2016.
Speaking to Sky Sports Whyte said: "I've always tried to fight David Haye, because he was the top guy at the time and obviously when you're coming up as a young fighter, you aspire to fight the guys at the top.
"I wanted to fight him to see how good I was and see how well I fare against him. I've always believed I could have beaten him.
"If you go back and look at my Twitter feed, I've been calling David Haye out for a long time. Long before he fought Bellew.
"He must have seen something that he thought he couldn't beat, or maybe he knew that I'm tough and I'm strong and I'm physical, and I was hungry.
"When you believe you can beat someone, you know deep down you can beat someone, it makes you dangerous and you approach the fight with a different mindset and mentality, and he knows it.
"Listen, David Haye is the biggest bully in the whole of boxing."
Whyte was critical of Haye and his fighter Derek Chisora over their defeat to Oleksandr Usyk.
Chisora battled bravely but ended up on the wrong side of a unanimous points decision.
Whyte claimed that Chisora, who he has beaten twice, 'let himself down' and says that Haye should have been in his corner instead of 'just having mates' there.
Chisora has since called for the pair to thrash out a trilogy fight following Whyte versus Povetkin II moved to January.
