Klitschko May Return To Face Whyte At Wembley
As the heavyweight division anticipates Anthony Joshua’s next move, Eddie Hearn may look to have an ace up his sleeve regarding Dillian Whyte’s next opponent.
With Joshua pondering a move from his April 13th fight at Wembley Stadium, to a fight at Madison Square Garden against Jarrell Miller, and Amir Khan choosing to fight Terrence Crawford instead of Kell Brook, Hearn has a gaping hole in his schedule.
Now, per a report from World Boxing News, Wladimir Klitschko may return from his nearly two year hiatus and face top heavyweight challenger Dillian Whyte.
While as a guest on talkSPORT, Whyte claimed he’d be happy to welcome the former world heavyweight champion back to the ring.
“I’ll fight Wladimir Klitschko and knock him out if he comes back. I’ll definitely knock him out,” Whyte told talkSPORT.
“I know exactly what to do. I’ve trained alongside him and I sparred him for years. I know what he’s like, I’d knock him out.
“He’s a great fighter. He gave Anthony Joshua hell, but I just believe it’s my time now and I know what to do. I know how I need to fight him.
“Of course he can (possibly knock me out) he’s very experienced.
“I just believe I will take it into his kitchen and rip the sink out. He doesn’t like body punches as well, I know that from sparring with him.”
