21-0 American Expected To Be Dillian Whyte’s Return Opponent In DAZN Headline Bout

NoSmokeBoxing has learnt that unbeaten, world-ranked American Heavyweight Jermaine Franklin (21-0, 14 KOs) is the most likely opponent for Dillian Whyte‘s next fight.

Whyte (28-3, 19 KOs) will return to the ring under the Matchroom Boxing and DAZN banner on the 26th of November at the OVO Arena, Wembley, London, England.

This comes after Whyte requested a sum of £3,000,000 to fight Daniel Dubois on BT Sport Box Office per sources. Queensberry Promotions refused to pay that sum, partially due to it being a week before Tyson Fury‘s PPV event.

Promoter Eddie Hearn presented multiple options for Whyte’s next fight a couple of weeks ago. Amongst those were Swedish southpaw Otto Wallin, Australia’s Demsey McKean, Chris Arreola and Jermaine Franklin.

Franklin previously signed to fight Whyte last October but Matchroom went with Wallin instead, the contest never took place after Whyte pulled out with a shoulder injury.

NSB understands that as things stand, Franklin is the most probable opponent for Whyte. When asked for comment, Franklin indicated to NSB that this was the case but after last time, he is not holding his breath for now.

This is still a developing situation and more updates could follow.
