Who’s the next best realistic opponent for Dillian Whyte?


We ask a panel of experts what they think Dillian Whyte’s next move should be

Darren Barker
Former IBF champion

I’d say Deontay Wilder. He’s entertaining outside of the ring and I think the build up between them two would be brilliant. And the fight would deliver.

Tony Jeffries
Olympic medallist

Full credit to Dillian for getting straight back in the ring and avenging his defeat. I think he should fight Andy Ruiz or Deontay Wilder in America to build his fanbase further.

Micky Helliet
Boxing manager

I think Deontay Wilder would be a good opponent next for Dillian Whyte. It could pave the way for the winner to face the winner of Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua.

Are we counting Deontay Wilder as realistic? Because that’s the biggest financially by a mile. I love the Andy Ruiz fight and a win there would further establish him in America which would mean bigger money against Wilder. His next opponent will be someone easier to beat than both of those, though.
