Dillian Whyte Will Be Aiming For a Brutal Knockout of Oscar Rivas

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte is risking a lot when he takes on undefeated top rated fighter Oscar Rivas, who is coming off a dramatic knockout of Bryant Jennings.

Whyte is nearing a long awaiting world title shot - and is currently ranked at number one the WBC - a position he's held for over 600 days.

But Rivas believes Whyte is overlooking him and doing too much talking about fights with Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury.

According to Whyte, he is absolutely not overlooking what Rivas brings to the table.

"I'm probably the most underestimated boxer in the world. People always talk some rubbish every time I fight them. We see it time and time again, they say this and they say that. I’ve done nothing but praise Rivas, he beat Pulev and Andy Ruiz in the amateurs, he was a top amateur. 26 fights, 26 wins in the pros, 18 knockouts, just beat Jennings," Whyte said.

“This for him in his world title, or whatever. For him it’s a big thing. He thinks everyone is overlooking him and he’s going to prove this and he’s going to prove that. I do that every fight. This isn’t a fight that I’m going to change my mindset for. This has been like this my whole career."

In every contest that he's ever had - Whyte has managed to either hurt, drop or stop his opponent. Even in the loss to

Last year, Whyte scored brutal knockouts of Lucas Browne and Derek Chisora.

And he aims to do the same to Rivas.

“Everyone I step in the ring with I believe I’m going to stop them man. Sometimes I don’t get the stoppage but I do try my hardest. I do what I need to do and I focus on me. I train hard and I don’t leave no stone unturned. I don’t overlook anyone and I graft to make sure I was better than the last time out. I don’t really care what these guys are going to do. They all have two hands and two legs, they’re going to do the same thing, jab, uppercuts, hooks, overhand, whatever. It’s a different challenge, different mindset, fresher guy as people say," Whyte said.

“He can look for [my left hook] but it will land at some point. I’ve got a massive arsenal of other punches as well. I’ve got a good right hand, good jab, good uppercut as well. Hopefully he’ll be looking for the left hook and that will leave him open for something else and I’ll get to showcase one of my other devastating punches.”

So, Eddie Hearn chose small, low-ranked fighters for his big, high-ranked boxers. His boxers (Joshua and Whyte) have height, reach, physique advantages over their opponents (Ruiz and Rivas). The first one lost and now people are worried that the second…
