Whyte revealed that Wilder, as well as himself, were beaten inside out by the 43-year-old who retired from the sport in 2017 after losing his belts to Anthony Joshua.

Wilder is gearing up for his WBC heavyweight rematch with Tyson Fury in America next month having ended their first in a stalemate.

Meanwhile, Whyte was quoted by the Sun saying: "I've seen him getting knocked out, Wladimir knocked him out.

"He knew what happened. He had his hands up. He was roughing Wlad up, bringing the smoke, and he was going wild.

"Wlad backs up, changes his footwork, feinting, feinting, jabs to the body, throws that feint jab, left hook. Wilder had his hands up, he was gone.

"It wasn't no knockdown, he was knocked cold. Properly twitching as well.

"That's why they probably didn't want him to fight Wlad, because Wlad was going to fight him as a pro and Wilder never fancied it the whole time."
