Dillian Whyte put down his brutal marker at the onset of a huge heavyweight fight week in Brita.
That statement was writ large in so much blood that even as he called out America’s WBC world champion, he may have goaded Anthony Joshua into making a rematch with him next on his violent dance-card, after his title unifier with Joseph Parker on the coming Saturday.
Whyte claimed the position of mandatory challenger to Deontay Wilder by his six-round demolition of previously unbeaten Australian Lucas Browne.
