Photos: Dillian Whyte Defeats Joseph Parker in Late Scare Thriller

Dillian Whyte moved closer to a dream shot at the world heavyweight title after dramatically securing a career-best victory over Joseph Parker on Saturday. (photos by Lawrence Lustig).

Whyte accepted the risky fight in an attempt to force a rematch with Anthony Joshua or a challenge at WBC champion Deontay Wilder. The British brawler may never be a more worthy challenger following his unanimous decision win in which he barely made the final bell.

A heavy knockdown in the final round and his exhaustion left him struggling to defend himself against former WBO champion Parker. But after an earlier knockdown, the first of the New Zealander’s career, Whyte received judges’ scores of 115-112, 115-110 and 114-111.

Whyte tried taking the initiative, and Parker was on the canvas in the second round after an apparent clash of heads. Whyte tried to dominate the inside but Parker would pick him off with jabs, though fail to follow up his infrequent good shots.

Whyte built up a lead with his aggression, and unexpectedly knocked down Parker in the ninth round with a left counter.

Knowing he needed a knockout at the end to win, Parker put down a tiring Whyte in the last round, but time ran out for him to press the advantage.

Both fighters entered the ring with only one loss, both to Joshua; Whyte in 2015 before any world titles were on the line, and Parker in March, when he lost his WBO title.

Whyte (24-1) has won eight successive fights since losing to Joshua.

[QUOTE=Sid-Knee;18980428]Whyte is a good fighter, he proved that by beating Parker. So no, he isn't ****. But it still stands. If you had that fight a draw you should stop scoring fights. You're hideous at it.[/QUOTE] with that head KO?…

[QUOTE=IlikeBikeTython;18978899]They are both a POS? Really? I’m not a huge fan of either guy but they are both top 5 or top 10 in the world in the heavyweight division. So if they are POS then maybe your standards are…
