Dillian Whyte believes he one of the world’s best five heavyweights and is THIRD behind Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua – The Sun | The Sun

DILLIAN WHYTE believes Britain boasts the top three heavyweights in the world as he put himself third in his top-five list.

The Body Snatcher  takes on Jermaine Franklin on Saturday at OVO Arena, Wembley – looking to get back to winning ways.

Last time out, the 34-year-old was knocked out by Tyson Fury inside six rounds.

Despite that loss, as well as defeats to Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin, the Jamaican-born fighter has established himself as one of the most feared men in the division thanks to epic victories against the likes of Derek Chisora, Joseph Parker and the rematch against Povetkin.

Uploading a clip on his Instagram story in 2020, Whyte was asked by a fan who he believes are the best active heavyweights.

And he stated that he believes he is a better fighter than former world champions Deontay Wilder and Andy Ruiz Jr.

He said: "Top five heavyweights would have to be Tyson Fury, Joshua, me, Deontay Wilder probably and Ruiz.

"Or one of those guys I guess."

Fury cemented his name as top of the tree – defeating Deontay Wilder twice, as well as scoring victory over Whyte.

Next up is his trilogy fight with Derek Chisora at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on December 3.
