Dillian Whyte and Danny Batchelder fight early Saturday afternoon at The O2 Arena.
Dillian Whyte enters this fight with a 16-1 record that includes 13 knockouts. Whyte has won five of his last six fights and is coming off a December loss to Anthony Joshua. Whyte was just another guy to get knocked out by Joshua, but he lasted till the seventh round, which is by far the furthest of anybody the current champ has faced. Whyte has a shot to get a rematch if he can string some wins together and get back on track. Whyte doesn’t need much of an introduction, as he has insane power in both hands and does a nice job of working the body until a head shot opens up. Whyte has won his last 12 fights by knockout. Whyte has fought his whole career in the United Kingdom, his current residence.

Danny Batchelder enters this fight with a 31-11-1 record that includes 15 knockouts. Batchelder has won five of his last seven fights and is coming off a August loss to Jon Bolden. Batchelder has lost his last two fights and has been hit or miss the last several years, which likely has a lot to due with him approaching 40 years old in a couple of months. Batchelder no longer moves like he used to and doesn’t have as much pop on his punches as well. The only thing really helping Danny Boy in this bout is the experience and his willingness to be aggressive. Batchelder may not be the most talented boxer in the world, but he does bring the fight to his opponent. This will be Batchelder’s third fight outside of the United States.
Batchelder has been knocked out in six of his 11 losses, which includes back-to-back knockout losses in his last two fights. What’s scary is that none of those fighters were as talented as Whyte. This is sure to result in another knockout loss for the American.
Whyte wins this fight quick and painless.
