Fighter vs. Heavy Bag.
Dillian Whyte retained the WBC Silver heavyweight title with a devastating sixth-round knockout of a lethargic Lucas Browne Saturday night at The O2 Arena in London.
Whyte connected with a pulverizing left hook on a badly wounded Browne, who had been dominated up to that point.
Whyte (23-1, 17 KO's), a Jamaica native based out of London, immediately called out undefeated titleholder Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO's), who holds the recognized world title.
“Deontay Wilder, where you at? June! Let’s go! I’m ready. I’m No. 1! June 11 at the O2! I’m No. 1 baby, let’s go!
“I proved to everyone that I’m world class. A lot of people were writing me off, giving Lucas Browne the edge. We kept quiet and worked hard. I’m a good fighter, but nobody has really seen it yet. When I’m challenged, I’ll rise to the challenge.”
According to Compubox punch statistics, Whyte, who has won his last seven fights since Anthony Joshua stopped him in the seventh round of their December 2015 bout, landed 109 of 269 total punches (40.5 percent), while Browne connected on a meager 36 of 172 (21 percent).
Whyte opened up a bad cut over Browne's left eye in the first round, and it was a savage beatdown from there.
The loss marked the first of Browne's professional career, dropping him to 25-1 with 22 knockouts.
