Whyte vs Parker Boxing Fight | Saturday 28th July

Whyte vs Parker Boxing Fight

Dillian Whyte will face Joseph Parker, the former World Boxing Organisation heavyweight champion in London at the O2, on 28th July starting at 6pm in a key heavyweight clash which is likely to shape the next challenger to the world titles.

Both Whyte and Parker have their sights set on a rematch with Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua who defeated them in their previous fights. So a lot is at stake for these two strong ambitious challengers, who have a like-for-like fighting record as they have equally the same wins, knock-outs and losses based on their number of fights so far.

Dillian Whyte said There’s going to be blood, pain and a knockout, I’m bang up for this. He’s a good fighter (Joseph Parker) but he didn’t show much courage against Joshua. I want him to be more adventurous and not go on the run, but he knows that if he has a fight against me, he’s getting knocked out clean and in a brutal way. I like challenges and I rise to them, this is a big fight. There’s a massive incentive for me to wipe him out and show the world that I am ready to be the top man in the division – I want a world title and I know I can beat Deontay Wilder and Joshua.".

Joseph Parker added "We’ve both been in with Anthony Joshua. One of us ended the fight on our feet, the other didn’t. That pretty much speaks for itself, said Parker - the only fighter to do so far take Joshua the full distance. I’m really looking forward to fighting Dillian. He’s got a big mouth and says some funny things – and he’s also highly entertaining in the ring. It’ll be an incredible fight. There’s no doubt about that."

This should be a huge night of boxing as Dereck Chisora will fight Carlos Takam on the undercard. Also on the undercard - Kell Brook clashes with Brandon Cook in a World Super-Lightweight title eliminator, Katie Taylor defends her WBA and IBF World Lightweight titles against Kimberly Connor, Conor Benn and Cedric Peynaud rematch after their fight of the year brawl in 2017 with a title on the line this time and Joshua Buatsi steps up in his first ten rounder against former British Light-Heavyweight title challenger Ricky Summers.
