WBC silver heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte (25-1-0) said that he won’t be surprised if Sunday morning the WBC has a new world heavyweight champion. This Saturday night in an all-American fight Deontay Wilder will go toe-to-toe with Dominic Breazeale in a 12-round fight for the WBC heavyweight strap.
The 31-years-old Brit will be watching the bout closely because he’s pursuing a title shot for the last year-and-a-half.
“I wouldn’t be surprised,” Whyte told Sky Sports. “Deontay Wilder, I wouldn’t want to be one of his handlers or his manager, because they must have nightmares and headaches watching him fight all the time, because he’s not good at any one thing. He’s not a good boxer.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if Breazeale beats him, because Breazeale seems to be tough and he seems like he can take a punch. I just see Wilder keeping out of the way of him and drawing him onto punches and just tagging him, because Breazeale is not very good defensively,” Whyte added.
“The Body Snatcher” is currently in training camp for his upcoming bout with Colombia’s Oscar Rivas (26-0-0) on July 20 in London.
