Bakole's Coach Ready to Put Him Against Whyte

Billy Nelson, the trainer of 30-year-old heavyweight Martin Bakole (20-1, 15 KOs), has stated they would instantly agree to a fight against British former title challenger Dillian Whyte (30-3, 20 KOs).

"Please tell Whyte's team to get in touch with us. We will take the fight immediately. This summer – no problem. A fight with Whyte is good, tough, but Martin will do his job.

If Whyte stands in the middle of the ring – Bakole will knock him out. If he wants to box – Martin will outbox him with speed, skill, and movement," Nelson said.

Dillian Whyte hasn't fought since 2022, making a ring return in March 2024 after a doping scandal. The Briton secured an early victory over Christian Hammer after three rounds. Bakole has yet to fight in 2024. His next fight will be a WBA eliminator. It seems his opponent will be Cassius Chaney (23-1, 16 KOs).
