Dillian Whyte has an opportunity to get a future shot at the WBC heavyweight title, but must first get past Oscar Rivas.
The two heavyweight contenders met one last time before their interim WBC title bout, set to headline the July 20 Matchroom Boxing card from The O2 Arena in London. The winner will not only be the interim titleholder but also be the mandatory challenger to the full world title currently being held by Deontay Wilder.
Also on the card are a number of heavyweight and cruiserweight contenders in action. Popular British fighter Dave Allen will look to continue his win streak by facing veteran heavyweight David Price while Derek Chisora is scheduled to fight former world title challenger Artur Szpilka. In other undercard fights, unbeaten cruiserweights Lawrence Okolie and Richard Riakporhe will defend their respective WBA regional titles in separate bouts.
