Watch: Dillian Whyte Stops Opponent With A Brutal Knee In Muay Thai Fight

Dillian Whyte loves a scrap.

Before becoming an established heavyweight boxer, Whyte ventured into two other combative realms including a successful stint in kickboxing.

He was a professional kickboxer, becoming a two-time British heavyweight kickboxing champion and he was a beast which is brilliantly showed in this video.

This bout, however, appears to be a Muay-Thai fight.

Here he is from way back throwing kicks and knees like a madman. Stopping his opponent with a brutal knee and he reacted to the video surfacing online which was titled: "Footage of @DillianWhyte in a Kickboxing fight. This man just loves to fight."

He also bagged the European K-1 title before transitioning to MMA where he had one fight at UCMMA.

The Brixton-fighter then found his home in boxing where he famously beat Anthony Joshua in the amateur ranks before turning professional.

He made his debut in 2011, and has since compiled an impressive 25-1 record. He's now on the verge of a world title shot after destroying Dereck Chisora.

The 30-year-old is in line to fight unified heavyweight king Joshua at Wembley Stadium on April 13th.

He's rattled off nine wins in a row following his first pro defeat to Joshua, including victories against Lucas Browne and Joseph Parker, among others.

And ahead of a potential Joshua rematch in the pro-ranks, Whyte believes he's going to 'knock him out'.

"It's a good fight, a good champion," he said. "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."

Will Whyte hold aloft a world title in 2019? Let us know what you think.
