How to watch the Dillian Whyte vs Joseph Parker heavyweight title clash

Headliners Dillian Whyte (23-1) and Joseph Parker (24-1) meet in a tasty heavyweight clash that will see the winner move on to world title contention next.

The Brixton ‘Body-Snatcher’ destroyed Aussie Lucas Browne with a devastating sixth round KO last March to defend the WBC Silver title and number one ranking he’d landed by beating Robert Helenius in Cardiff in October last year.

Kiwi Parker is back in the UK after fighting in the Welsh capital in an historic unification battle with Anthony Joshua in March, with Whyte’s old foe handing a first career defeat for the New Zealand star on points. Parker lost to AJ just four months back but it was way back in 2015 when Whyte fell to his old amateur rival in the seventh.

Undercard highlights

The latest addition to the card that has seen a few cancellations in the lead-up is the tantalising British title eliminator between unbeaten heavyweight Nick Webb (12-0) and Twitter legend Dave Allen (13-4-2).

It's the 'Lion' versus the 'White Rhino' in a fight that will mark a significant step up in levels for Webb, 30 from Chertsey, and a last roll of the dice for Doncaster’s David Allen.

The pair have been trading verbal blows over social media for a while and are bound to set the Greenwich Peninsula alight in what is expected to be an all-action, explosive heavyweight clash that is unlikely to go the distance due to their exciting clash of styles – Allen wears his heart on his sleeve and likes to tread forwards and Webb is a devastating puncher brimming with confidence. The winner will meet British heavyweight titleholder Hughie Fury next.

Predictions for Nick Webb v Dave Allen

There’s even more heavyweight action with former World title challengers Dereck Chisora (28-8) and Carlos Takam (35-4-1) meeting in a must-win match up that will keep the world title hopes alive for the victor.

Katie Taylor (9-0) defends her WBA and IBF world lightweight titles against Kimberly Connor (13-3-2).
