Prediction,

This will be worth the watch, but nothing to glue your eyes to the screen for.

Dillian Whyte is a good fighter, he defeated Anthony Joshua as an amateur, his only defeat coming against the same man in, bar the Klitschko fight, the undefeated WBA and IBF heavyweight world champion's toughest fight to date, after Whyte hurt Joshua, and withstood enough punishment for the fight to go beyond 6 rounds. Whyte is believed in the UK to be a top heavyweight, his reputation rising after his great performance against Anthony Joshua, he has won 4 fights since, the last of these fights, being against bitter rival, Dereck Chisora, in a 12 round, back and fourth, close, fan friendly war, Whyte just about edged out Chisora, who I expected him to defeat comfortably. I believe Whyte is overrated, he can punch, he has some good skills, he is tough as nails, very durable, but I think he makes a lot of mistakes, sloppy, leaky defence, he lacks discipline at this level, not as bad as he did before possibly being motivated by his fight with Joshua, but still I think he could train harder. Whyte has not fought since his fight against Chisora, back in December, he is calling out the big names, he recently came close to securing a deal with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder, but that fell apart, he has been calling out Joshua for the rematch, and WBO world champion Joseph Parker for a long time now, for now, before he competes in a fight like this, I think he should maintain consistency, activity, so this match up is good for him in my opinion, something new, fighting overseas, not a big fight, not a terrible opponent at the same time, so I think this kind of fight could be what Whyte needs for his career at the moment.

Malcolm Tann is not a boxer I have seen fight before, but looking at his record, 24-5, having been in the ring with Chris Arreola, Alexander Dimitrenko, fighting for the WBO Inter-Continental title, I don't think he's a 'bum'. I have no idea whether Tann is fighting Whyte because he believes he can win this fight, or mainly just to do his job, provide for his family, either way, this isn't a bad opportunity for him. I think Tann was confirmed as Whyte's opponent on relatively short notice, so I'd imagine, at best, Tann is a fighter who trains consistently, stays in shape, always gives it his all once he's in the ring, I doubt Tann will approach this fight in a strategic manner, I don't think him and his coach will have done a lot of research on Whyte, worked hard on constructing a good, tactically planned game plan.

I think Dillian Whyte will win this fight, and by stoppage. I think Whyte will look quite poor, start very slowly, being the only one producing any quality work at all in the early rounds. I think Whyte's timing, rhythm will be off, he'll look slow, he'll get caught a couple of times, it will be a lacklustre bout. I think Tann will know he is a class below Whyte, but not get out classed from first bell, so he will try his best to take the fight to Whyte in rounds 3 and 4. I think Whyte will easily overpower Tann, find his distance, get into a half decent rhythm, and dig in some ripping hooks to the body, knocking steam out of Tann, I don't think Whyte will quickly capitalise with a sustained assault, but I think he will begin to land with more shots, and have more of an affect. I think Whyte will drop Tann a couple of times in round 5 with body shots, repeatedly bash his opponent with power shots with annoyance, maybe not so much motivation to make a statement, I don't think it will be really brutal, but I think Tann will throw nothing back at this point, evade nothing, and Whyte will just beat him up in there, and the referee will stop it. I think the scorecards will all be an easy 40-36 at the time of the finish. I think this will be an underwhelming, slightly frustrating fight for the viewers, I don't think Whyte will look awful, I think it will be an OK performance, but I certainly don't think he will impress a great deal.

Hoping for a good opener here.

Tann at 39 just didn't have what he needed to deal with Whyte.

Pretty much what I predicted, it just ended a couple of rounds earlier. Whyte didn't look in great shape, he looked quite ponderous in terms of using the ring, and I saw holes in his defence. This was a decent performance, good win, good for Whyte to get back to winning ways, but I think of he does get an opportunity against Wilder, Joshua, or Parker, he will lose, and he'll get stopped, he won't want to fight Hughie Fury I don't think, that is if Fury beats Parker, but anyway, I don't think Whyte will be a world champion.
