Dillian Whyte to fight Danny Batchelder: Confirmed O2 bouts
British heavyweight Dillian Whyte aims to put his solitary loss to Anthony Joshua behind him against American veteran Danny Batchelder this weekend.
Whyte, 28, succumbed to Joshua’s power when the pair met in December but is chasing a rematch after his rival won the world title in April.
Fighting on Joshua’s undercard would suggest Whyte is in consideration for ‘AJ’ in the future and 39 year-old Batchelder shouldn’t pose too much of a threat to the Brixton man’s hopes.
Batchelder has been defeated in his last two fights and has 11 reverses on his record, six of which have come by way of knockout.
