Dillian Whyte has called out heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder after stopping Malcolm Tann in three rounds on his American debut.
Wilder has 37 knockouts from his 38 wins and holds the WBC version of the belt.
He has been linked with fights against Anthony Joshua and Tony Bellew this year, but now seems to be leaning towards a bout with Brixton-born Whyte.
Tann was dropped four times by Whyte, two with vicious blows to the 38-year-old's body, and 'The Bodysnatcher' doesn't think Wilder would be able to live with his power.
"I'm a natural body puncher and try to hurt these guys to the body," he told ESPN after his knockout win.
"Against Deontay Wilder, imagine those shots?
"With his thin, lean body he’d fall after three or four rounds.
"I believe in my power. If I land I can knock any of these heavyweights out."
The emphatic victory at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln will do Whyte's credentials no harm, but it is safe to say that any fight against the 'Bronze Bomber' would be stepping up a number of levels.
It was just Tann's third bout in 10 years, and he has now lost four of his last five in total, so maybe too much shouldn't be read into Whyte's emphatic victory.
However, making such a mark during your US debut is only a positive, and it certainly sets himself up nicely for future fights.
Whyte's use of body shots to soften Tann up worked throughout, and by the midpoint of the second round, the American looked like he'd had enough.
The Briton dropped him twice in that round, and then brutal body shots left him on the canvas twice more in the third round before the referee decided enough was enough.
We all know Whyte vs Joshua will happen once again, but who will be next for Dillian? Looks like it could be Deontay!
