Collect your money but next time you might only get a line. Theres a few comping up and he hasn't finished yet. May eventually have to fight one or more of Fury.Wilder,Usyk,Yoka and more if somebody comes out the woodwork.
Ive not voted because I think Whyte has MAINTAINED his reputation. I expected him to stop Derek and he did. But I applaud him for taking the fight. Could have taken somebody easier. But I don't think this will continue. Hell get the AJ slot in April but even if he doesn't I don't expect him to fight a Miller or a Usyk any time soon. He's nothing to prove and I keep saying it but has earned an AJ or Wilder fight.
I see your point, I ranked him below those 3 before and after his fight. However, I give him a better chance against the next top 3, in povetkin, pulev and ortiz after that fight. So he did improve his stock imo.
What a shit year for Whyte. He headlines 2 PPVs, defeats two former world champions and has the KO of the year oh, and the runner up. His stock has fallen through the floor, he clearly can't punch and just needs Naz to look into the camera and tell him to retire.
Its what your definition of 'stock' is. He was headlining a PPV fight before he even stepped in the ring. That fact was decided beforehand. The question was 'has his stock rose in the division after koing Chisora?'. I'm comparing him against the division before and after the fight, as the question asked, and nothing has changed in my opinion.
