Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte wants a fight with WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder on November 4, but he’s not focused just on that, as he’s also calling out WBO titleholder Joseph Parker and American prospect Jarrell Miller.

Whyte (21-1, 16 KO) took a thinly-veiled shot at Parker’s win over Hughie Fury at the same time:

"Joseph Parker knows I won't be running from him. I won't be running from him, staying on the back foot and boxing him. I will stand in the middle of the ring with him and trade, and he will get knocked out. He won't have to come looking for me. It won't be a tricky fight and I won't be moving around and jabbing, no. I'll stand in the ring with him, have a fight, and I'll put him to sleep. Simple as that."

As for Miller, who is scheduled to face Mariusz Wach on November 4 on HBO, Whyte said the American will have to travel:

“Jarrell Miller cannot sell out an arena. He's a Brooklyn guy, but he cannot sell out a Brooklyn arena. If he wants to make money and have a good fight, then he should come to fight me at The O2. That's my home city and I will draw a crowd to The O2."

The 29-year-old Whyte last fought on August 19, stopping veteran Malcolm Tann in the third round. That was his first fight since his December 2016 war with Dereck Chisora, which Whyte won by split decision.
