Whyte stops Browne, calls out Wilder

Dillian Whyte took care of business in his path to a world title shot in sending Lucas Browne down to a crushing defeat on Saturday night at the O2 Arena.

Whyte landed a left hook with everything on it that flattened the 38-year-old Browne (25-1, 22 KOs).

The WBC didn’t inform Whyte and Browne that their fight was a WBC heavyweight title eliminator. As such, it’s still up in the air who WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder’s mandatory challenger is.

The Australian heavyweight was knocked senseless by the shot. Whyte (23-1, 17 KOs) now wants a title shot against WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs).

Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn is likely to make Joshua vs. Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller next if AJ wins his fight next Saturday night against WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker in Cardiff, Wales.

Whyte wants his title shot against Wilder right now in his next fight. “I hope Browne is all right, now where you at Wilder?” Let’s go in June. I’m ready! Forget, Joshua, he won’t be ready in time. Let’s do this next baby. It’s go. I proved I’m world class. I’ve been working so hard, training away and it’s paid off,” Whyte said.

Wilder turned down $4 million to face Whyte recently. He’s not going to willingly take less than that fight him now that he’s beaten an out of shape, underperforming Lucas Browne.

”I need the challenge and when it is there, I rise. I can crack,” Whyte said. The O2 is my home; I’m going to knock all these guys out, one by one. I just knocked out a world champion in six rounds. That shows where I am at. Wilder’s next fight is me. If he fights anyone else I will go the USA and kick off.”
