Hunter Hopes To Fight Whyte Next
While Dillian Whyte hopes to face Tyson Fury in a WBC world title eliminator, Matchroom fighter Michael Hunter is eyeing a shot at the WBC silver heavyweight champion.
Hunter dropped Fabio Maldonado on the undercard of Saturday’s Matchroom Boxing USA broadcast on DAZN, giving the former United States Olympian his 17th pro win, and Maldonado’s third in as many fights.
“You know, I just tried to use my quickness, my speed and my ability. I knew I had the agile footwork over him so I just wanted to use that to be impressive,” Hunter said.
This marked Hunter’s fourth straight win since moving up to heavyweight in 2017, after a loss to Oleksandr Usyk at cruiserweight.
“It is the heart where I win at. I run them down. We are all over 200 pounds, but the difference is that I just have a bigger heart than everyone else,” Hunter said.
“I would love that [Anthony Joshua] fight at any time. Any mandatory, anytime, really. I will take any fight anytime. I am here to stay and I will take on anyone. I want to fight Joshua next. He is the cash cow and it’s an easy fight to make, we are both on Matchroom and DAZN. It should be easy to make that next. I’d like to fight Dillian Whyte if I couldn’t get AJ next.”
