Despite a painful early defeat to Russian veteran Alexander Povetkin in his last fight, British heavyweight champion Dillian White continues to consider himself one of the best heavyweight fighters.
Answering a live Instagram question about who he ranks in the top 5 heavyweights, White placed himself in third place, just behind WBA / IBF / WBO champion Anthony Joshua and WBC title holder Tyson Fury.
It is interesting that after him White named Deontay Wilder, with whom, to put it mildly, he did not have the warmest relationship. But Alexander Povetkin, with whom the Briton will have revenge today, did not find a place in this list.
“My top 5 heavyweights would include Tyson Fury, Joshua, myself, Deontay Wilder and possibly Ruiz. Or someone from the other fighters,” said Dillian White.
