Dillian Whyte has not held back with his response to Andy Ruiz Jr’s taunts following his defeat to Alexander Povetkin.
The Brit was knocked cold by the Russian on August 22, eliciting a gleeful reaction from the Mexican-American.
Povetkin knocked Whyte cold in round five
Whyte ripped into Ruiz earlier this year as the pair exchanged words about a potential fight.
Ultimately the bout did not happen and Whyte was stopped by Povetkin instead.
After the result, Ruiz said: “I was so happy that Whyte got his a*** knocked the f*** out.
“You know why? Because he doesn’t have respect for the fighters – that’s what gets me p***ed off.”
Ruiz Jr will rubbed it in
He later also tweeted: “Stop playing the victim card bro…
“You talk all this s***, disrespect your opponents at weigh-ins, post stupid memes and now we gotta feel sorry for you cause you got KO’d?
“Get the f*** out of here.”
You talk all this shit, disrespect your opponents at weigh ins, post stupid memes and now we gotta feel sorry for you cause you got KO’d?? #gtfoh

Dillian did not hold back with his reply
Whyte has now responded in predictably strong fashion.
He told iFL TV: “Andy Ruiz is glad that he don’t have to fight me.
“He’s glad the only battle he’s got now is just with diabetes.
“I’m not on him anymore, he’s glad. Diabetes he can overcome, but he can’t overcome me.”
