Dillian Whyte Defeats Oscar Rivas

London, UK (July 21st, 2019)– Dillian Whyte survived a ninth-round knockdown to overcome Oscar Rivas and edge closer to a world title shot in a gripping bout at London’s O2 Arena.

The British heavyweight was smart early on and was close to stopping Colombia’s Rivas in round two after a right hand.



Whyte, 31, has campaigned for a shot at WBC champion Deontay Wilder but his dreams looked set to be dashed when an uppercut floored him in the ninth.



He composed himself to land a unanimous 115-112 115-112 116-111 decision.

“I went to move and crossed my legs and got caught with a punch,” said Whyte. “I won every round after that. These guys have had hundreds of amateur fights; I had seven.
