    Lets face it he got Iced by a 41yo over the hill guy when he lost the first fight, and has just beat a Shot Covid riddled Sasha in the rematch. His legs were gone before he even got in the ring.
    Hearn stating Whyte should fight Wilder now. Lets be real i'm no Wilder fan and a a boxer he is Dookie but if he fights Whyte he 100% ices him.
    Whyte is packing China and it has been exposed by AJ and Povetkin.
    He scraped by against Chisora in the first fight pulled a banging left hook in the rematch i had him down on the cards and if round 12 had 1 more minute against Parker i am in no doubt he would have been stopped.
    He always states he is inexperienced and still learning but he is 32 years old and has had 30 pro fights how can you still be learning?
    I just don't see why all across social media he is being hailed as a brilliant fighter and how the card last night was great what were people watching. The Big Cheese was entertaining though.

    It’s exactly why Hearn has these immediate rematches inked in to the contracts. In the eyes of most people, it completely overwrites that initial defeat as if it didn’t happen. Job done.

    I’ve seen nothing but criticism apart from the usual “experts” employed by Sky / Matchroom.

    In my opinion, Whyte definitely loses to AJ, Fury, Joyce, Usyk, Wilder and Ruiz. And another handful ‘probably’ beat him. He’s fringe top 10.

    He’s awful. Just a talentless lump for skilled heavyweights to beat up on. How he is on box office I will never know.

    I'd give him credit if he beat 1 of those guys. Last night means nothing.

    If Ortiz was told a win against Whyte and then someone like Parker or Ruiz Jnr would give him one last title shot he'd smash Whyte up and probably outbox Parker or Ruiz Jnr, supposedly over the hill or not.

    I can’t believe that **** Whyte gets. People get shots having done 100x less than this lad. He hasn’t even had a shot yet. Kept busy rather than waiting and waiting for his shot and lost. So what. Rematch clauses are stupid most of the time but Hearn does them a lot and nobody cares.

    One stain on him is the drug thing. Other than that I seriously don’t understand the hatred on here for him. I don’t think that’s even a fraction of why he gets abuse. Agreed he’s not PPV and he’s been on many but I don’t think anyone is Unless in the right fight. I’ve read literally hundreds of posts by tens of people in the last week justifying this as a PPV so that can’t be the reason either.

    Hearn is calling Whyte vs Wilder a stadium fight, looks like a potential money spinner for Leyton Orient.

    Has Wilder been give step aside money? I read the rematch clause has expired but it seemed to have gone quiet on that front anyway. I really wanted to see that ******* get another hiding! I’m guessing he was over the moon to take the money. Worst fraud ever.

    No idea, I have to say that the fight interests me because I think it would be an entertaining mess that would end with a brutal KO, one way or another.

    Whyte now has the best and deepest resume in the division after AJ.

    In potential fights I think he would

    Whyte loses to
    AJ
    Usyk
    Hunter
    Parker (although Whyte dersevedly won their first fight I think he would lose the a rematch).

    50/50
    Ruiz
    Joyce
    Hrgovic

    Whyte Beats
    Fury
    Pulev
    Wilder
    Ortiz
