Matchroom boxing has announced via WBN that British heavyweight Dillian Whyte (20-1, 15 KOs) will lock horns with Poland’s Mariusz Wach (33-2, 17 KOs) at London’s O2 Arena on June 3. The fight will be aired live on Sky Sports.
“I’m super excited to be headlining at The O2,” said Whyte. “I’ve being working hard to be a standalone headline fighter and to headline against someone of the stature of Mariusz Wach is great.
“He’s a good fighter. Tall and rangy and he throws a lot of body punches and uppercuts. He’s Polish so of course he’s going to be tough and bring that warrior spirit."
In chief support of the card, British light heavyweight titlist Frank Buglioni will defend his strap for the first time against Ricky Summers. There will also be a number of young London fighters making an appearance on the card, including: Reece Bellotti, Ted Cheeseman, Isaac Chamberlain, Lawrence Okolie, Craig Richards, Jake Ball and Danny Dignum.
Whyte, 29, is most recently coming off one of the very best action fights last year when he took on Dereck Chisora, beating him by split decision in December. Wach, 37, has won two straight fights by decision since getting knocked out by Alexander Povetkin in late 2015.
