Who’s the next best realistic opponent for Dillian Whyte?

Tyson Fury vs dillian whyte
We ask a panel of experts what they think Dillian Whyte's next move should be

Josh Warrington
Former world titlist

I feel for Dillian as he’s in a tricky situation. Whilst waiting for Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury he has to keep busy but with meaningful fights. If he was 100% going to walk into the fight with the winner of the above, then I’d say either Andy Ruiz or Deontay Wilder. Almost a world title fight and how much would it make for a build up if he can beat either one of them!

Darren Barker
Former IBF champion

I’d say Deontay Wilder. He’s entertaining outside of the ring and I think the build up between them two would be brilliant. And the fight would deliver.

Tony Jeffries
Olympic medallist

Full credit to Dillian for getting straight back in the ring and avenging his defeat. I think he should fight Andy Ruiz or Deontay Wilder in America to build his fanbase further.

Micky Helliet
Boxing manager

I think Deontay Wilder would be a good opponent next for Dillian Whyte. It could pave the way for the winner to face the winner of Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua.

Declan Taylor
Sports reporter

Are we counting Deontay Wilder as realistic? Because that’s the biggest financially by a mile. I love the Andy Ruiz fight and a win there would further establish him in America which would mean bigger money against Wilder. His next opponent will be someone easier to beat than both of those, though.
