Hearn is open for Whyte fights against Ruiz and Povetkin

After the official withdrawal of charges of doping by UKAD, Dillian White (27-1, 18 KOs) could again get the fight for the WBC heavyweight title. However, as the British did not get his chance at a championship belt before the beginning of 2021, he returns to the ring in the fight for the WBC interim belt.

Eddie Hearn, the promoter of The Body Snatcher sees his protege in the confrontations with Andy Ruiz Jr. and Alexander Povetkin.

"Whyte will fight in April, possibly in the UK," said Hearn on IFL youtube channel. "Everything depends on the next fight of Joshua and the battle of Chisora ​​vs Usyk. I would like to see him against Andy Ruiz Jr. But will Ruiz agree to it? Probably not".

"It would also be nice him to fight Povetkin. It would be a real war. Both fights would be good for Dillian, but the priority is to fight for the WBC belt. We need to discuss this with WBC. Whyte did not get a title fight as mandatory challenger until 2021, to which, as you know, we do not agree," the head of the Matchroom Boxing said.
