Heavyweight boxer Dillian Whyte
WBO world heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte would not be surprised if Dominic Breazeale defeated Deontay Wilder on Sunday.

American boxer Wilder is scheduled to defend his WBC heavyweight title against his countryman Breazeale at the Barclays Center in New York, USA.
"I wouldn't be surprised," Whyte, who is set to defend his WBC Silver and WBO heavyweight titles against Colombia's Oscar Rivas on 20 July 2019, told Sky Sports.

"Deontay Wilder, I wouldn't want to be one of his handlers or his manager because they must have nightmares and headaches watching him fight all the time, because he's not good at any one thing. He's not a good boxer.

Breazeale proved his toughness in his solitary defeat against Anthony Joshua, who is the reigning WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO champion.
"I wouldn't be surprised if Breazeale beats him, because Breazeale seems to be tough and he seems like he can take a punch," the British boxer added.

Undefeated Wilder is ranked as the world's second-best active heavyweight by BoxRec.

He is also ranked third best by the Transnational Boxing Rankings Board and The Ring magazine.
