Dillian Whyte Rates Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder, and Andy Ruiz Jr.

By Mike Parrott

Dillian Whyte has been cleared by the UK Anti-Doping and is ready for his next title shot. 'The Body Snatcher' has also rated Anthony Joshua, Andy Ruiz Jr, Deontay Wilder, and Tyson Fury.

Dillian Whyte has finally been cleared by the UK Anti-Doping and is ready to get his name back in the Heavyweight elite.

With him being reinstated as the WBC Mandatory Challenger (currently held by Deontay Wilder), Whyte will most likely be fighting one of Tyson Fury, Wilder, or Anthony Joshua by the end of 2021.

Whyte has actually opened up to Sky Sports about the potential fights he could have and has rated each Boxer and how he'd fare against them.

Deontay Wilder:

Wilder is one of Whyte's most likely opponents with Wilder being the current owner of the WBC Championship Belt.

Dillian Whyte on Wilder: "Coward. Chicken. Yellow-livered hill-billy."

"It would be a tough fight because he is quite agile with awkward movement. I would expect a tough fight but I believe I can knock Wilder out."

"People might laugh but I believe I can get to him, and knock him out...It wouldn't be a fight where I would jab my way in. I'd run at him in the first round and start brawling and, if I get chinned, then so be it."

Anthony Joshua:

AJ and Whyte have both faced each other in the Amateurs and the Pros with both of them taking one a piece.

Whyte on Joshua: "Two-time heavyweight world champion. What can I say? I'd love a third fight with him because the score is 1-1."

"I can beat him. He is open to the left hook and I've got the best left hook in the business. I believe I can knock him out, and I believe I will...Whoever wants it, can get it."

Tyson Fury:

Fury and Whyte have never faced each other before, but could happen if Fury fends off Wilder twice and becomes the WBC Champion.

Whyte on Fury: "I don't know what to say about Tyson Fury. He's a smart businessman - he came back and fought two nobodies, talked his way into the Wilder fight and did alright, and made a lot of money by fighting in WWE."

"He's awkward and a big guy but I believe I could beat him. You've got to target Fury's body, and pressure him. When Otto Wallin pressured him it caused a lot of problems."

Andy Ruiz Jr.:

With both of these not in confirmed fights over the next six months, this fight could also happen between the best of the rest.

Whyte on Ruiz Jr: "Have you seen Star Wars? He is Jabba The Hutt."

"He should be ashamed of himself. I don't understand - these guys work so hard to get to a place, then get there, then fall off the edge of a cliff...People might say I came in out of shape as well. But that's a different story, I wasn't the unified heavyweight champion of the world!"
