According to heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte (20-1, 15 KOs), he is slated to return to the ring this summer, on a date in June, and he wants at top contender to fight.
Whyte is looking at four possible names, and all of them are world title challengers - Bryant Jennings, Mariusz Wach, Artur Szpilka and Gerald Washington.
He's been out of the ring since last December's twelve round war with Dereck Chisora - which was a 'Fight of The Year' candidate. Whyte walked away with a close decision win.
Fans are calling for the rematch with Chisora, but Whyte has other ideas on his mind. He feels the Chisora rematch will always be there for him in future. Chisora also has a tough fight scheduled for next month, when he faces Robert Helenius in a rematch.
Whyte claims that Jennings was talking trash about him, and he confronted Jennings - face to face - and Jennings ate his words and backed down.
"I'm the main event in June but I don't know the opponent yet. We are trying to get some kind of eliminator and are waiting to see the best route to go. There's the likes of Wach and Jennings, who both lost to Wladimir Klitschko and Szpilka and Washington, who both lost to Deontay Wilder," Whyte told Isaac Robinson.
"If I can get in there and do a better job than those champions did then it secures my place as a world title challenger. Jennings interests me because he talked some rubbish. I confronted him when I saw him and he didn't want to know. It was typical coward's behaviour. Jennings is a good fighter and he's in great shape but I don't think he's got the biggest heart in the heavyweight division.
"As for Chisora, that fight will always be there but he's got to fight Robert Helenius [on May 27] first. It could happen around December time if he keeps winning. If the money is right, we'll see what happens and it could be a final eliminator for the WBC."
