But while world titles are what define legacies, fight fans also love a good tear-up and that's what we should get in Dillian Whyte's next outing as "The Body Snatcher" has been matched up with former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker in the main event of a July 28 card at London's O2 Arena.

Earlier this week, Hearn told Sky Sports: "Although he wants to become the mandatory, he's also the flawless guy to create a big fight for Anthony Joshua in the United Kingdom, and the more impressive performances Dillian Whyte puts together, the more he's knocking on that door". I think that this is the one. However, the Whyte fight is a great result for Parker, who was desperate for a high-profile, credible, opponent after his disappointing 12-round defeat to Joshua.

With the possibility of the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis if Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder comes to fruition and Tyson Fury's imminent return to the ring, we're in for some history-making fights among the big boys in the coming years.

"Whilst we are in negotiations with the Jennings camp, we have other real options on the table including Alexander Ustinov".

ACCC: Petrol prices highest since 2015
Recent cut in fuel rates in India have come in the backdrop of continuous fall in worldwide oil prices over the week. Petrol price has dropped by 70 paisa a litre and diesel by 50 paisa in the last eight days.


Speaking via press release, Whyte and Parker are both confident in claiming the win and catapulting their themselves back into contention for a rematch with Anthony Joshua. "That pretty much speaks for itself", said Parker.

"Whoever told you that I was not interested in fighting you is delusional".

"I'm looking forward to getting back to training and burning off the pies I ate in New Zealand". "I know it took a lot of hard work from my team to get this over the line".

However, Whyte appears to be about to announce a bout against Parker, who is also seeking a mandatory challenger position after losing his WBO belt to Joshua in March.

"He'll be seen as unsafe and a lot of guys are very mouthy and derogatory towards Parker in putting him down like [Tony] Bellew, or like Dillian Whyte", Higgins told Sky Sports in April.
