WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder has advised top contender Dillian Whyte to walk away from his promoter of the last few years, Eddie Hearn, in favor of a promotional pact with powerful advise Al Haymon and the Premier Boxing Champions banner.
Whyte, who claims to be a free agent, was recently in the United States and held talks with several parties - including PBC - about his future.
In the last few days, Whyte has voiced his frustrations with being offered what he felt was less than desirable money to fight WBO, WBA, IBF, IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in a rematch at Wembley Stadium in London.
Joshua is by far the biggest star in Hearn's vast stable of boxers.
There are many possible opponents on the other side of the street.
Haymon has several heavyweights under the PBC brand - like Wilder, Andy Ruiz, Luis Ortiz, Dominic Breazeale, Charles Martin, Adam Kownacki, Joe Joyce, Efe Ajagba and several others.
Haymon also has no shortage of television dates, with content deals in place with Showtime, Fox Sports and ITV in the UK.
Wilder believes a move to PBC will change Whyte's career for the better.
"I think that will be the best decision [signing for PBC] that he will ever make in his career," Wilder told Barbershop Conversations.
"There’s nothing like America, nothing like being here in America, and getting in front of American fans. I think that will be a great move for him and move him more closer to getting the fight with me than anything. We will see what happens."
Whyte was in action three times in 2018, with a vicious knockout of Lucas Browne, a twelve round decision of former world champion Joseph Parker, and then another brutal knockout in December when he put away Dereck Chisora in their rematch.
