heavyweight Dillian Whyte is disappointed the WBC has ordered he fight WBC#4 heavyweight Luis Ortiz for the mandatory position.”I’ve fought for every single belt the WBC said I was eligible for. I’m one of the only guys in the WBC who has followed the proper procedure. I fought many eliminators, and many WBC ranking fights. I’ve been loyal to the WBC for about two years,” Whyte told Sky Sports.

“I’ve had the sanctioning fights, I’ve done everything they have asked me to do. My information was – I was meant to be next in line. If anything, the WBC should be ordering me and Breazeale to fight in a final eliminator to face Wilder.
“I’ve had loads of WBC fights and they’ve always been against top contenders. [Dereck] Chisora, Helenius, Browne. These haven’t been against mugs, they have been against top contenders, who are highly ranked in the WBC as well. We’re going to try and see what we can do, and see whether or not we can reach some sort of agreement with the WBC. I’m very, very disappointed and annoyed. I feel betrayed by the WBC to be honest.
Miller (20-0-1, 18 KOs) is facing Duhaupas (37-4, 24 KOs) in the opening bout of this telecast, which is an eliminator for the WBA heavyweight world title, which is currently held by Anthony Joshua. Of course with the WBA, things always get a little confusing: Joshua holds their “super” title, which is widely acknowledged as the “real” world title, while Manuel Charr holds their “regular” belt. One assumes the winner of Miller-Duhaupas will then be in line to face Joshua; or will it set him up to face Charr? It’s tough to say.
While Duhaupas is a solid fighter, he is now 37 years old and has been stopped by Deontay Wilder (in 2015) and Alexander Povetkin (a year later). Meanwhile, Miller is only 29 and has been tearing through his opposition, aided by his massive size.
Jacobs (33-2, 29 KOs) faces solid contender Sulecki (26-0, 10 KOs) in the main event. Sulecki fought his last three bouts at junior middleweight, and is a good fighter with a somewhat classic European style. But against a highly skilled boxer like Jacobs, I expect the Brooklynite will figure out Sulecki’s timing and movements relatively quickly. On top of that, Sulecki is about an inch taller than Jacobs’ 6’0” but he doesn’t fight tall, which is not a good thing against an experienced fighter like Jacobs.
Gonzalez, who suffered a cut over his left eye in the opening round, pinned Lopez on the ropes numerous times and dug both hands to the body.
After a few rounds, however, the Mexican’s punches seemed to lose power, and Lopez surged ahead, countering effectively from long range.
In the TV opener, middleweight Magdiel Cotto, of Comerio, Puerto Rico, won a majority six-round decision over Elie Augustama, of Miami. Augustama (6-8, 3 KOs) fought hard but was outworked by Cotto (9-0, 7 KOs). The scores were 57-57, 58-56 and 58-56.
The main event is my pick this week: Lopez (35-7, 19 KOs) is a 15-year pro and has faced some of the best welterweights in the world. Cruz (17-0, 11 KOs) is a young contender on his way up. Lopez will be a major step up for Cruz and provide a great test for the 27-year-old, and the match-up should be a sufficient gauge as to how much the hard-fighting, 33-year-old Lopez has left.
