David Haye believes Dillian Whyte deserves a shot at a world title and has also named three potential opponents he should fight next.
Whyte claimed a unianimous points victory over former WBO world champion Joseph Parker on July 28 in what is regarded as the Londoners best win to date.
He knocked Parker down twice in the fight – albeit once was a dubious knock down – and he was the deserved winner after 12 hard-fought rounds at Londons O2 Arena.
The 30-year-old will now be looking for his next fight, and Haye believes it should be against either Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder or Dereck Chisora.
I was very impressed, it was a great fight, Haye told Sky Sports regarding Whyte vs. Parker.
For Whyte, it was about performing on this stage and showing he is one of the big boys in the division. He showed he deserves a crack at one of the world champions.
Parker has never been knocked down in sparring or a fight before so that shows how powerful Whyte is.
I wouldnt mind seeing a rematch. Whyte has to now look at his career, Dereck Chisora wants a rematch, Deontay Wilder is out there, everyone wants Joshua, and this puts him in good stead for the future.
Whyte previously fought Joshua, losing via knockout, and he has also faced Chisora, a fight he won. He has, however, never fought Wilder before.
