Dillian Whyte was commentating at this weekend’s heavyweight boxing show in Cardiff and is at the center of a number of potentially huge fights next up.
‘The Body Snatcher’ recently put on one of the best performances of his professional boxing career when he hammered previously unbeaten Lucas Browne inside six rounds.
It was thought that a shot at WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder would be next up for Whyte, who has positioned himself very highly in the WBC rankings.
However the Englishman has revealed that Wilder doesn’t want the fight but in fact Russian Alexander Povetkin and his team agreed to fight him next up:
@bronzebomber wilder is coward and don’t want to fight me this man and is team agreed to fight me last night at ringside let’s see if they will honour there word get it made Eddie come on @eddiehearn @skysports @matchroomboxing @hboboxing #TEAMBODYSNATCHER pic.twitter.com/oYFrjXj0l0

Povetkin boxed Liverpool heavyweight David Price last night – whom he viciously knocked out in the end.
However Price had him in trouble more than once in the fight and showed that while technically Povetkin is a class act, he is there to be hurt.
Whyte no doubt will have taken confidence in what he saw from Price last night.
If Whyte vs Povetkin were to happen, in theory that also leaves the door wide open again for Joshua vs Wilder next up.
