Suddenly! White reveals the reason for the nondescript performance against Franklin


Former British heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte (29-3, 29 KOs) revealed the reason for his poor performance in Saturday’s fight against American Jermaine Franklin (21-1, 14 KOs).

words winner, he “came into the fight with an injured bicep and a chest infection. You understand that in such a state it is very difficult to break oneself mentally. Oh, it was very difficult. I understood that in case of defeat, this is the end of everything. And once again, I don’t get credit for winning. Even though I fought an undefeated fighter.”

Rumor has it that in March, White will meet in a rematch with former unified world champion compatriot Anthony Joshua, whom he lost in 2015 by technical knockout after a shoulder injury received during the fight. Dillian is not ready to talk about this topic: “Look, personally, I’m ready for anything. But right now I just need to relax and unwind. I want to go home. I want to see my family. I want to play with my dogs and calm down.”

The other day, he put an end to the question of a rematch against Franklin and confirmed that in the event of a defeat, “I would have to end my career.”
