Dillian Whyte has discussed a comeback to the ring with BOXXER and Sky Sports.
Since losing to Tyson Fury at Wembley Stadium in April after a long search for a championship fight, Whyte hasn’t fought. And now for the first time in several years, he is now out of the running for the heavyweight championship, and to increase his chances of winning the title, he must defeat other challengers.
Many broadcasters, notably Eddie Hearn and DAZN, are interested in collaborating with Whyte, so a number of choices might be on the table. Since Whyte is aware of their interest, promoter Ben Shalom is optimistic that they will collaborate in the future. “He is a free agent so he knows that we are interested,” Shalom said to Mirror Fighting. “He also knows that DAZN and BT are interested. He is coming off a loss that he will feel he probably wasn’t himself but there are a lot of opportunities at the heavyweight division.”
“Below the very top there are some big fights for Dillian, he is a proven pay-per-view star, fan favourite and he will feel like he has a point to prove. We have been in talks and we hope that one day we will work with Dillian Whyte but it will be his choice and the time when he feels ready. It was obviously a big loss against Tyson Fury and one that he will take his time to recover from.”
