Looking to once again become a top heavyweight title contender, Dillian Whyte will face off against the undefeated Jermaine Franklin. The two fight inside the OVO Arena Wembley in England on November 26.
This is Whyte's first fight since losing to Tyson Fury in April for the WBC heavyweight title. Whyte, who last fought in March 2021, was the interim WBC champion and top contender since 2019. In the sixth round of their fight, Fury knocked out Whyte. Fury ended up going into temporary retirement after.
A pro since 2011, Some believe Whyte has a clear edge against Franklin, who debuted in 2015. Per Caesars, Whyte is the -1200 favorite, while Franklin is the +750 underdog. Fury, who has sparred with Franklin before the fight, doesn’t think that should be the case.
“I don't think it's a mismatch, it's just that Dillian Whyte is a good fighter,” Fury told The Sporting News’ Tom Gray. “He’s a top-five, top-six-rated heavyweight, even though he has been in a lot of tough fights. Franklin is definitely the fresher fighter, so if he gets busy with the punches, puts a good work rate in, and moves his head, then I think it could be a difficult night for Dillian.”
