Dillian Whyte Returns: Ready to Take on Christian Hammer

Dillian Whyte remains confident in his ability to compete against the heavyweight division’s elite despite a 16-month hiatus from the ring. Making his comeback on Sunday night in Castlebar, West Ireland, Whyte is set to face Christian Hammer (27-10-0) in a highly anticipated showdown at the TF Royal Theatre.

Whyte’s last bout was in November 2022, where he secured victory against Jermaine Franklin. However, a failed pre-fight drug test ahead of a scheduled bout with Anthony Joshua in August sidelined him. Now cleared to fight again, Whyte is focused solely on the future.

“Not lingering in the past, I’m focused on what lies ahead,” Whyte stated. “After 16 months out, I’m glad to be back in the ring. Fighting here in Ireland holds special significance for me, given my Irish roots.”

Acknowledging the challenge posed by Hammer, Whyte emphasized his readiness to take on tough opponents. “I’ll face anyone, anytime, anywhere. Christian is a formidable opponent, but I’m here to win. Despite opinions surrounding the tests, I’m focused on my performance and proving myself.”

Expressing his passion for boxing, Whyte emphasized his desire to compete at the highest level. “I believe I’m still among the best heavyweights globally and capable of defeating top contenders. My goal is to secure wins, climb the rankings, and contend for a world title once again.”

Weighing in at 18st 5lbs, Whyte prepares to battle Hammer, who tipped the scales at 19st 7lbs. The heavyweight clash headlines a thrilling card featuring local favorite Ray Moylette and other talented Irish fighters, promising an electric atmosphere on St. Patrick’s Day in West Ireland.
