The Briton lost by TKO in the sixth round of his domestic clash with The Gypsy King on Saturday night at Wembley Stadium. Tyson Fury’s ruthless right uppercut – which was accompanied by a push – ended Whyte’s hopes of clinching the WBC heavyweight title on home soil.

Whyte will now have to rebuild himself to get back into the heavyweight title race which has been very busy. And there are plenty of decent fights out there for Body Snatcher to restart the ranking chase. Here are Dillian Whyte’s next five fights:
Like Dillian Whyte, former WBC heavyweight king Deontay Wilder came off the winning column following a spectacular knockout loss to Fury. The Bronze Bomber — nicknamed Deontay Wilder — suffered a brutal 11th-round stoppage loss to Fury in their trilogy fight last October but has no plans to hang up his gloves.
This explosive feud between the pair makes sense at their respective career stages. And when you factor in their longstanding feud, the fight has all the ingredients to be a source of battle.
Andy Ruiz Jr
Former unified heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz Jr is also well and completely out of the way – despite his return to the winning column against Chris Arreola last May. Ruiz Jr is currently scheduled to face former world title challenger Luis Ortiz in the summer.
And if he gets past the veteran heavyweights, a last-man fight against Fury could put him on the verge of fighting for another world championship.
Although Joseph Parker is on course to face Joe Joyce in the summer, a rematch with Whyte would make sense for both men – regardless of the outcome of the clash with Juggernaught. Whyte defeated the former WBO heavyweight champion in the summer of 2018, knocking him out twice in their O2 Arena clash. But Parker, 30, came close to finishing Whyte in the final round of their thrilling bout – which many boxing fans want them to do.
