Fight record and stats
Dillian Whyte is a British heavyweight boxer and former kickboxer and mixed martial artist born in Jamaica and based out of Brixton, London after he moved to England with his family at the age of 12. The fighter, known as ‘The Villain’ and ‘The bodysnatcher’ is 6’4” and has a 78” reach. Whyte famously had a feud with Anthony Joshua that stemmed from their amateur boxing days and their contest as amateurs which Whyte won. A wild professional rematch was to follow which Joshua won by TKO in round 7.
As a kickboxer Whyte became a two time British champion before focusing on boxing. Whyte is widely regarded as one of the best in the division but a shock knockout defeat to Alexander Povetkin looks to have stalled his push for a world title shot after the fighter had built a commanding lead in the contest.
