Whyte and his crew won't be sweating Breazeale mate. Bloke needed a robbery to beat Fred Kassi, Mansour had him beat until he bit his own tongue or something. Yeah he beat Ugonough but that's because he clearly has a bad chin and an awful gas tank- he might have been highly touted but he's going nowhere.No Dave it never was. He has as good a record as any top heavyweight,better than most. The Ugonough guy was being highly touted,and looked like beating Brezeale but got stopped. Mansour is a himself a guy who British promoters won't entertain but Brezeale bettered him. I personally think Whyte might beat Brezeale in the extremely unlikely event they ever thought but its far too risky for it ever to happen. Helens is not the fighter who lost to Chisora but got the decision. He has only fought once this year and is a few years older than Dillan. In other words the best opponent they can get away with and just about right in this country. Whyte might even get a stoppage here ad stay on track for his title shot. Objective achieved.
Haymon is probably more likely to have turned this fight down than Hearn didn't want it. If AJ-Wilder don't happen next, Breazeale can be the latest in house fight for them- being they alreadly have a bit of a fake beef going on. If Whyte had beaten him, he would have been the obvious standard defense- probably even catapulting himself to WBC#1, and it's a fight team Wilder clearly didn't want despite Hearn breaking the bank to make
