DILLIAN WHYTE is expected to follow in the footsteps of Tyson Fury and beat up on Deontay Wilder if he ever gets his hands on him.
Former WBC champion Wilder was knocked out in the 11th round of his trilogy fight with the Gypsy King last weekend, despite putting up a valiant effort before being stopped.

And Eddie He And Matchroom Boxing boss Eddie Hearn is confident Whyte would do the same to the Bronze Bomber, despite admitting the Brixton banger’s fondness for a tear-up could see him laid out. “Whyte would do exactly what Fury did to Wilder in terms of being too big and strong, but he could also get KO’d,” he told iFL TV. ”
Hearn, 42, believes Anthony Joshua, the former unified heavyweight champion, and his successor, Oleksandr Usyk, would both defeat Wilder. But he admits that the pair, who will renew their rivalry next year, could be eliminated by the heavy-handed Olympian. “AJ, too sharp, too good a technician, but could also get KO’d,” he continued.
Usyk would dominate Wilder, but he could also be knocked out.
