Dillian Whyte has announced that he is going to next be fighting on undercard of Kell Brook vs Errol Spence Jr. Who he will fight is currently unannounced? Lets explore some of the possible options…
Chisora was a highly likely opponent for Whyte after their anger fuelled fight on the Joshua Molina undercard. This fight would have been great to see a rematch after Whyte beat Chisora in a 12 round showstopper. Chisora recently announced that he would be fighting Robert Helenius on the same night as Whyte’s fight on May 27th. Chisora lost to Helenius in 2011 in what he and some boxing fans dubbed a ‘robbery’. Whyte vs Chisora rematch could happen, Chisora has said that it could happen but it will not be till later on in the year. But if Chisora wins this fight against Helenius and wins the ‘silver’ WBC heavyweight belt, then he will be the official contender for Deontay Wilders’s World WBC heavyweight title. If he has to choose between Whyte in a huge rematch and Wilder for a world title who would he choose?
After beating David Haye in a huge upset, Tony Bellew says he has 3 fights left in him before he retires. Bellew beat Haye in March this year in a bout which saw Haye snap his achilles in round 6. Whyte needs to have some more big fight id he wants to fight the biggest and the best, if the wants to fight for world title then he needs to fight some top level fighters such as Bellew. Tony Bellew who is the current Cruiserweight champion says he is only a boxer and only keeps fighting for his family and to earn the money. To earn those biggest pay check she needs to fight the biggest names in boxing and some of the biggest pay cheques are in the heavyweight division. Whyte vs Bellew would be a huge fight for both men as it would gain them a potential shot a world title and a lot of money.
Dillian Whyte could face Bermane Stiverne in a huge showdown which would see the winner likely go onto fight Deontay Wilder. Whyte has only lost once in his career, and that was to Anthony Joshua who has gone on to become the IBF world heavyweight champion. Stiverne was going to face Alexandre Povetkin but the fight was called off due to Povetkin failing a drug test for the second time last year. That fight would have been huge for Povetkin as the winner would have gone on to most likely face Deontay Wilder for his WBC strap. Stiverne is a solid fighter and would challenge Whyte who has proved that he has a good chin and take some heavy shots as shown by his fights with both Joshua and Chisora. Stiverne vs Whyte would be huge and would be highly beneficial for both men.
