Dominic Breazeale is Very Open To Facing Dillian Whyte Next

Heavyweight contender Dominic Breazeale (19-1, 17 KOs) is licking his chops at the idea of a showdown with Dillian Whyte (24-1, 17 KOs).

Breazeale has been inactive since last December, when he knocked out Eric Molina in what was billed as a WBC eliminator.

He waited for a mandatory showdown with WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, but it now appears the undefeated beltholder will instead take a voluntary defense in the fall with Tyson Fury.


Whyte, who was ordered to face Luis Ortiz in a final WBC eliminator and passed, is looking for a top opponent.

Breazeale, like Whyte, suffered his sole career defeat at the hands of IBF, WBO, WBA, IBO champion Anthony Joshua.

If he's unable to secure a showdown with Whyte, Breazale is hoping to take part in a stay busy fight before the year is over.

Whyte was in action last month, where he survived near disaster in the twelfth and final round to win a solid decision over former WBO world champion Joseph Parker.

"You know, I thought the Dillian Whyte fight and myself was actually going to happen this year," Breazeale exclusively told Sky Sports.

"He's bound with the situation with the WBC and his silver belt, and I have the WBC mandatory. I only thought it was right for him and myself to get in the ring and square it off as the fans would love to see, so hopefully that fight does come here in the near future.

"It's definitely up to Dillian Whyte, but I'm a fan pleaser, and if the fans want to see it, I'm going to be the guy to give it. I'm in a situation where the belts are beautiful and I want to hold all the belts by all means, but at the same time, I want to please the fans. If they want to see it, I'm going to make it happen."

[QUOTE=Star Platinum;19057988]Whyte looked good against Browne because he was a giant walking tub of lard. As soon as he got into the ring with Parker he gassed in 6 rounds.[/QUOTE] We're talking about skill, not stamina. Whyte would pick Brezeale…

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;19050800]Whyte can box when he wants to. Just watch him against Browne. Brezeale is a brawler though who doesn't have that kind of skill. Whyte would just pick him apart by walking him into counters all night.[/QUOTE] Whyte looked good…

[QUOTE=JWHardin;19052126]I would love to see Joyce vs Ortiz. It would either tell us Ortiz is over the hill or that Joyce will never be good enough to climb it.[/QUOTE] I wish Joyce was under matchroom, it wouldn't take hearn 72hrs…

[QUOTE=Laligalaliga;19051726]Well, that's your opinion and you are entitled to it. If whyte believes breazeale is the way forward for him with more financial rewards which I squarely believe, then so be it. Ortiz can look for another cojanu to slaughter…
