Whyte: I'm Capable of Doing What Joshua Could Not - KO Parker!

Dillian Whyte backed himself to knock out Joseph Parker on Saturday, providing he keeps his Hulk-like rage in check.

Whyte is 23-1 and believes he can go one better than IBF, IBO, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and stop Parker (24-1) early at London's O2 Arena.

The Briton is confident in his ability, but compared himself to Bruce Banner, the comic-book scientist who struggles to contain his anger-powered Hulk alter ego.

"[Parker] is motivated, he knows beating me gets him close to another shot at AJ, so that's what makes him dangerous," Whyte said.

"I'm like Bruce Banner, I'm always angry, but it's just whether I let it consume me or not. I have the skills and capability to do what AJ couldn't and to KO him.

"I'm hungry and, when I fight, I want to hurt these men. I want guys to go home after losing to me and be thinking about me in September after I've beat you up in July.

"I'll be all over him, hitting him everywhere and often. He's going to hate that.

"I've seen everything he's going to bring and I will take everything he's got and strategically break him down and chop him to bits."

Maybe he can do something else AJ couldn't do and knock himself out in 6 rounds instead of the 7 rounds it took AJ to knock his ass out

Whyte is so predictable in approach. If Parker can't beat him, he has no business in the 'mid and 'upper' tiers of the division.
