Whyte Is Aiming For The Top


Dillian Whyte from Brixton, London, could be a future star. He is big, strong,has good skills and could reach the very top of the heavyweight division.



Undefeated in seven fights, with four early finishes, the 24 year old’s powerful performances have created a real buzz in the game but ’The Villain’ is keeping his feet firmly on the ground.



Whyte knows he is still a work in progress and is more than happy to take his lumps to learn the trade, evidenced by his recent trip to Germany to spar with WBC king Vitali Klitschko.



"It was great experience," recalled Whyte, who beat Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua as an amateur. "I enjoyed every second of every day of the three weeks I was out there. I’ve definitely learnt from the experience and developed as a boxer.



"At the moment all is going well in my career and me and the team are looking forward to the future. I leave it all up to my manager Joe Long, and trainer Chris Okoh, but we have a plan!"



That plan next involves a September 15th appearance at the York Hall, before moving onto an explosive October 13th clash, on the David Price versus Audley Harrison British heavyweight title fight bill at Liverpool’s Echo Arena, with Noureddine Meddoun.



Meddoun may have lost two of his six career bouts, but what’s for certain is that he can bang. All four of the Moroccan’s wins have come via first round KO, and his date with Whyte has ’don’t blink’ written all over it.



With a potential English title shot against John McDermott slated for later in the year, Dillian knows he cannot afford any slip-ups in Liverpool. The Londoner, however, isn’t fazed by appearing on the big Echo Arena bill and is predicting another spectacular finish for his fans.


"I treat all bouts and shows with the same commitment and look forward to every fight," explained Dillian. "If it’s a small hall or an arena show it makes no difference to me. I can’t see this fight going the distance though. Someone’s getting knocked out, and it’s not going to be me!"
