Since being knocked out by Anthony Joshua, the Brixton heavyweight, Dillian Whyte, has got his career back on track with a couple of good wins, although some may feel he got the luck of the draw when he was given the verdict over Dereck Chisora back in December in a brutal and bruising encounter.

Whyte should have been fighting on June 3rd against an opponent who is a former world-title challenger and would have tested Whyte?s status when if comes to progressing towards a world title belt.

The man in the opposite corner was going to be Mariusz Wach.

I say was going to be because Whyte has been forced to withdraw from the fight after picking up a foot injury.

Dillian Whyte has pulled out of his heavyweight bout with Mariusz Wach on 3 June because of a foot injury.

Talking about when Whyte might now be making a return to the ring, his promoter, Eddie Hearn, has remarked,

‘We expect to see him return in July before challenging for the world heavyweight title towards the end of the year.

‘Dillian is on the verge of a world title shot and we can’t afford to enter a fight at this stage not being 100%.’

If that is the case, it remains to be seen which version of the world heavyweight title Hearn is guiding Whyte towards.
