Dillian Whyte tipped to return to ring in the autumn after the devastating KO loss to Tyson Fury to shatter world title dreams

DILLIAN WHYTE is expected to return to the ring this autumn following his brutal KO loss to Tyson Fury in April.

The body snatcher was dropped in the sixth by a textbook Fury uppercut that ended his world title dream.

Whyte was put on oxygen in his corner after being KO’d in front of 94,000 at Wembley.

And now promoter Ben Shalom has confirmed Whyte, 34, is likely to return to action this autumn.

SunSport exclusively revealed earlier this month that Derek Chisora ​​could be offered a chance to fight Whyte if he beats Kubrat Pulev on July 9.

And Shalom is hoping Whyte will make his comeback before the end of the year.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the promoter said: “I know he’ll fight again, whether it’s with this channel or this channel or this promoter I don’t know but it would be great to see Dillian back.

“I don’t think he was against Tyson Fury, I think everyone can see that and I want to see him back in the ring.

“I think he’s been a fan favorite on Sky for so many years, it would be great, there’s a lot of big fights left for him and I think he’ll fight again in the autumn and hopefully we’ll be a part of that.”

BOXXER boss Shalom spoke about new signing Joseph Parker and listed him as a possible opponent for Whyte – if talks with Joe Joyce fail.

Whyte and Parker have met before – at 02 in 2018 – when the Brit won a hard-fought battle on points.

Elsewhere, Whyte has been cited as a top target for Daniel Dubois.

Dynamite Dan vowed Whyte “gets it” after the latter accused him of “giving up” in his 2020 loss to Joyce.
