DILLIAN WHYTE fights in boots covered in previous opponents’ BLOOD.

And the British interim WBC heavyweight champ is ‘p***ed’ that he didn’t add any of Alexander Povetkin’s to his collection.

Whyte, 32, last night avenged his shock 2020 loss to the Russian last night, producing a stunning fourth-round knockout.

But the 28-2 star, who had won his last 11 fights prior to previously being upset by Povetkin, wasn’t entirely satisfied with his night’s work.

After the fight in Gibraltar, he revealed to iFL TV that he likes to collect opponents blood on his shoes.

Asked if he intends to fight twice this year, despite his title path being blocked by the two-fight contract signed by Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury, Whyte responded emphatically: “I want to fight three times this year.

“I love fighting man, I’m young. Why not enjoy when I’m young?

“I don’t care about… I just go and fight and enjoy fighting and getting my job done.

“Only thing I didn’t get no blood on my boots I’m p***ed.”

Called a ‘weirdo’ for his comment, Whyte responded: “Why?

“Look (pointing at his boots), these are previous opponents’ blood.”

After his charge’s win, promoter Eddie Hearn said: “The ultimate aim has been for Whyte to challenge for the world heavyweight title.

“Tonight was about getting his career back on track. It was a lot of pressure.

“Coming back from the knockout was not easy. We are back where we wanted to be.”

Amid plenty of speculation surrounding his next opponent, Whyte joked: “I’ve waited long enough, there’s no way I should wait anymore…

“I’ll just break Joshua’s leg so they can’t make the fight, then I’ll just turn up and fight Fury.”

But Hearn, 41, fancies a shot at Deontay Wilder.

He added: “I’d like to see him box quickly again in the summer, maybe go over to the States and have a fight over there.

“We know there’s a logjam. For me, we called for the Deontay Wilder fight for a long, long time.

“Now, he got knocked out and he’s calling for the fight with Dillian Whyte. So for me that’s a stadium fight, that’s a colossal fight.

“The ultimate aim has always been for Dillian Whyte to challenge for the world heavyweight title.”
