Boxing Bites: Whyte v Parker / Benavidez v Dirrell update

Ringside 25/07/2018

World Boxing Council Silver Champion Dillian Whyte, will fight former world champion Joseph Parker this Saturday at the O2 Arena in London, England.

Whyte declares to Sky Sports News: “I feel fine and I just try to be better and better a little bit faster, a little bit stronger, a little smarter and get more experience.

“I haven’t had a long amateur or professional career, so I’m still learning day by day.

“Parker is a young boy, but he’s about three times as experienced as me, so I think he’ll be a tough opponent.

“I’m willing to go to war over 12 rounds. But, I’m not obsessed with the knockout!”

Whyte has built a very decent record of 23-1, 17 knockouts.

While Parker is 24-1, 18 knockouts. The fight is organized by Matchroom Boxing, run by Eddie Hearn, and will be broadcast by SKY in the United Kingdom.

World Boxing Council super middleweight champion David ‘Red Flag’ Benavidez, looks set to defend his crown against Anthony Dirrell, on September 8 in New York.

Benavidez (20-0, 17 KOs) comes from defending his crown against Ronald Gavril, in a rematch fight that he totally dominated.

For his part Anthony Dirrell (32-1-1, 24 KOs), comes from winning in El Paso, Texas, against local Abraham Han, via a broad unanimous decision.

David became the youngest super middleweight champion in history, at the age of 20, 8 months and 19 days of age.

Anthony was super middleweight champion of the WBC in August 2014, after defeating Sakio Bika by unanimous decision after a previous draw.

Later, Anthony lost a decision against Sweden’s Badou Jack.

Since then, he has won five fights, the most important of which was against Caleb Truax.
