Dillian Whyte is one of the most celebrated heavyweight boxers in the world who went up the boxing monarchy after initially being his best in two other combat sports: kickboxing and MMA.
In one of his most phenomenal Muay Thai fights, the beast in Whyte stopped his opponent with a brutal knee. After it was recently posted on social media, the Brixton-fighter wrote a simple reaction: LOL.
Whyte was once a kickboxer and a mixed martial artist who also fights great Muay Thai. He gained a successful stint in kickboxing, becoming a two-time British heavyweight champion in the sport.
The 30-year-old also bagged the European K-1 title before trying his talent in MMA, where he had a single fight at UCMMA. After this venture, Whyte finally entered boxing, where he became one of the greats, especially in heavyweight.
Dillian made his boxing debut in 2011. After almost 8 years, he compiled an impressive 25-1 record, now apparently on the verge of earning a world title shot against Anthony Joshua after recently destroying Derek Chisora.
In fact, Whyte defeated Joshua in the amateur ranks before turning professional. He is currently in the line to fight unified heavyweight king Joshua at Wembley Stadium on April 13th, who is looking forward to entering the ring against Deontay Wilder.
Following his first professional defeat to AJ, Whyte rattled off nine wins in a row. These include impressive victories against Lucan Browne and Joseph Parker among the rest.
Knock Him Out
Speaking about the potential rematch against Joshua, the 30-year-old believes there is only one way for the rivalry to end: knocking his opponent out cold.
“It’s a good fight, a good champion. I believe this time around I’ll knock him out because I’ll take the fight to him. Last time I sat back and waited, I was trying to box, and trying to wait for him to get tired.”
“This time I’ll take the fight to him and I know I’ve just got to hit him once. I proved that already on two separate occasions, and this time I’m in better shape, physically I’m stronger. More boxing IQ, better speed, everything.”

While his fight against Joshua is not yet official, the WBC silver heavyweight thinks he and his team is picking up ‘mediocre’ matchups. Talking to Adam Catterall on The Sports Bar he said:
“I called him out there live thinking the fight could be made and I was very disappointed with Anthony’s response. I was ready for him to say ‘Okay, let’s get it on.”
“Wilder is not going to fight him because he doesn’t want it and is fighting Tyson Fury. But from his answer – and the way he was acting – I think AJ might want the fight, but I don’t think his team wants the fight.”
