Dillian Whyte happy to fight Deontay Wilder in the US

Dillian Whyte is prepared to fight Deontay Wilder in Alabama.

The heavyweight contender is assessing his next career move after his recent win over Alexander Povetkin and admits that he would be happy to fight the former world champion on his home turf, such as his desperation to boost his own world title prospects.

Whyte told Sky Sports: "I think the public demand for the Wilder fight is already there, to be honest.

"There's a lot of demand for it already. But fighting in America doesn't hurt and it does increase the profile and the interest, and a different fan base and following. It would be good to get a big fight in America in the summer.

"I'll fight Wilder in Alabama, if that's what is going to make him feel secure and safe enough to take the fight. If he wants, he can have the home judges, his hometown, whatever. I don't care. I'd even fight him in his own home, the kitchen, the garage, the garden, wherever. I just want to get hold of him and hurt him."

Whyte admits that he doesn't particularly care about fighting in big venues as long as his career is moving forwards.

He said: "Anywhere the fight is, I just want to fight. As long as I'm fighting and I'm progressing and I'm entertaining the fans and building my career, and it's a good fight. That's it.

"I don't care where the fight is, to be honest. Whether it's in Vegas or Wembley, or York Hall. The main thing is getting the victory and being involved in a big, important fight. That's the main thing for me."
