    "Dilon fites anyone doe"

    - Receives a title eliminator offer against Kubrat Pulev - Doesn't take it.
    - Receives a title eliminator offer against Luis Ortiz. - Doesn't take it.
    - Personally challenges Ortiz on social media and Ortiz accepts. - Still doesn't take it and fights Delboy Chisora instead.
    - Receives a title shot offer against Joshua - Doesn't take it.
    - "Nobody knows who Usyk is, doesn't even speak english." - A month later announces fight against Óscar Andres Rivas Torres, Valle del Cauca, Colombia, no habló inglés.

    Exactly ! I'm no a Whyte hater by any means but this whole narrative they're pushing is pathetic.

    The truth of things is often in between. Everything that you are saying may be 100% true, but Whyte still has had a ballsy series of fights to point to.

    With Deontay dismantled, Usyk as-yet unproven at the weight, Parker wasting his time, Povetkin coming off a draw, and Ruiz struggling with obesity, I think Whyte is the clear and undisputed #3 in the division. That may change today.

    Beware the overhand right!!

    Whyte is a B level fighter. He got banjo'ed off AJ, both Fury and Wilder beat him comfortably too.

    To be fair Chisora, Browne, Parker, Rivas, Povetkin is a better line of opponents than Molina, Szpilka, Arreola, Duhaupas, Washington from Wilder and that guy was supposed to be a world champion ffs.

    Which I disagree with, but I don't disrespect it.

    The problem is, you have the Fury-Wilder-Ortiz wing of the division, where there is now clarity, and the Joshua-Povetkin-Whyte-Ruiz-Parker wing of the division, where there is parity, even moreso after today. It is hard to tell how they fit together, with only Chisora and Brezeale having fought on both sides.

    I strongly disagree but I understand your point of view.

    Brilliant post mate thats it in a nutshell. Hearn has properly earned him 10m with that narrative. What a sales job.

    Yeh I wasn’t dismissing whyte completely only felt wilder had better wins and the manner of his wins were more conclusive. I feel whyte did just enough v chisora first time and the Parker fight hinged on the kd but both were close fights, with wilders wins there’s no debate to be had that’s why I had him 3

    Exactly and all normal boxing fans knew that, except for Matchroom fans wh listen to Whyte and Hearn's rubbish.
