Boxer Dillian Whyte: Unfairly held back from a title shot?



Warning: This video contains some strong language.

He’s a leading contender but British heavyweight boxer Dillian Whyte says he’s not getting a fair shot at a world title. Some commentators see it as a stitch-up.

BBC Newsbeat has spent the last eight months following the 30-year-old, following every twist and turn as he fights for his chance to compete for a title. It’s looking like there’s a chance of having another crack at old rival Anthony Joshua, who has 3 of the world belts. Then there’s being made mandatory challenger against Deontay Wilder. Will any of these pan out?

We start with day 1 of the camp to prepare for Whyte’s fight with Derek Chisora, Newsbeat’s sports journalist Eleanor Roper investigates what it takes to be a top class boxer and the business of bagging a title shot.

Dillian Whyte: Fighting to be Champ is a Newsbeat documentary made by the people who do the news on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra.
