Dominic Breazeale Confident He Would Knock Dillian Whyte Out

Heavyweight contender Dominic Breazeale is still very much interested in settling a score with Dillian Whyte.

The two boxers had been ordered to face each other in a WBC final eliminator in early 2019, but for whatever reason the WBC then ordered Breazeale to get a mandatory shot at then world champion Deontay Wilder.

Wilder would destroy Breazeale in the first round with a brutal right hand to the chin. It was the second defeat on Breazeales' record, with the first being a seven round stoppage at the hands of Anthony Joshua in 2016.


Whyte has since captured the WBC's interim title, and is scheduled to fight on July 4th against former world champion Alexander Povetkin.

Breazeale, who only fought twice since November of 2017, has been inactive since suffering the knockout loss to Wilder in May of last year.

Whyte is among the names on Breazeale's list of preferred comeback opponents.

"I think it's a pressure style fight," Breazeale told Sky Sports.

"He's going to bring it for a little bit, I'm going to bring it for a bit. In the end, the fans are going to be very pleased with what they get out of a fight between myself and Dillian Whyte.

"He's a knockout artist, he loves to throw leather with bad intentions and I like to do the same. I think I have the upper hand on him as far as strength and athletic ability, of course with size. In the end, I think I come out with the knockout win for sure."

Whyte has a better resume of wins, with victories over Joseph Parker, Derek Chisora, Oscar Rivas and several others - but Breazeale feels very confident that his skill set will be too much for Whyte.

"My ability to have been in the ring with some of the best in the heavyweight division so far, will be way too much for him," Breazeale said.

"I think he has problems making adjustments as far as fighting guys who can box as well as fighting guys who can throw leather. I studied him for a little while. We were in some heavy contract negotiations. I think at this point, he's a top-class heavyweight fighter from the UK, I'm a top-class heavyweight fighter from America - it makes for a great fight."

I would favour Whyte in this fight, Breazeale has a good punchers chance though.

[QUOTE=Monzon99;20502626]Whyte wanted WIlder's wbc title which would have given him much more money and leverage vs AJ. Wilder never offered to fight Whyte, nothing but duck moves and excuses. Whyte's pressure on Wilder is forcing Wilder to fight him. People…
