DILLIAN WHYTE moved closer to a dream shot at the world heavyweight title after dramatically securing a career-best victory over Joseph Parker at The 02 Arena in London.

The 30-year-old had accepted the risky fight in an attempt to force a rematch with his great rival Anthony Joshua or a shot at the WBC champion Deontay Wilder, and may never be a more worthy challenger following his unanimous decision win in which he barely made the final bell.

A heavy knockdown in the final round and his exhaustion left him struggling to defend himself against the former WBO champion but after two earlier knockdowns of his opponent he was awarded victory via scores of 115-112, 115-110 and 114-111.
