Matchroom Boxing head Eddie Hearn has revealed that Dillian Whyte has “no fear” going into his clash with Joseph Parker, according to a report on Sky Sports.
Whyte and Parker will meet each other in the ring on 28th July, with both fighters believing that they have exactly what it takes to be victorious.
Both fighters have aspirations of challenging for the world titles that are currently held by Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder.
Hearn believes that Whyte will be too much to handle for Parker, who fell to defeat to Joshua at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff in March.
When speaking about Whyte, Hearn said:
Dillian Whyte is a winner. He wants to fight anyone and he has no fear. He’s a bad geezer. When it gets going, and when it gets down and dirty at the O2 on July 28 – I’m guaranteeing it will be – he will be right in the thick of it.
They say, and we’ve seen it on the camera there, that Parker looks very light, very lean. He feels like he has a point to prove, because he felt like he sort of let the Joshua opportunity slip.
Whether Joshua was just too good for him, we don’t know, but he’s going to have a lot of speed going into this fight, and he’s got a lot to prove.
Whyte has also fell to defeat against Joshua but believes he has matured a lot since that bout.
