Trainer is Confident That Dillian Whyte Will Win World Title

By Terence Dooley

Mark Tibbs, the son of legendary British trainer Jimmy, believes that Dillian Whyte (24-1, 17 KOs) will become his first world champion given Whyte’s recent run of fine form and elevation in the ratings.

Tibbs followed in his father’s footsteps and now has a growing stable, with Whyte his most prominent fighter.

The trainer has told Lee Power of the Newham Recorder that Whyte’s decision win over former WBO Joseph Parker was a proud moment for him and that he has always had confident in the London-based heavyweight.

“It would be fantastic to get my first world champion and I am sure Dillian has the ingredients after his latest win,” he said.

The two men hooked up following Whyte’s seventh-round KO loss to unified holder Anthony Joshua in December 2015, his sole defeat, and the 30-year-old contender has rattled off eight wins since that reverse, cumulating in victories over Robert Helenius, Lucas Browne and now Parker.

“Dillian was marvellous against Parker,” added Tibbs, who will now help Whyte and promoter Eddie Hearn work on the popular fighter’s next move.
