Ben Whittaker Vows Activity-Packed 2024 with Upcoming Bout

Light heavyweight prospect Ben Whittaker, known for his flamboyant style, is determined to stay busy in 2024. He's confirmed to fight on March 31st as part of the undercard for the Fabio Wardley-Frazer Clarke British heavyweight title fight.

This news follows his impressive fifth-round knockout of Khalid Graidia earlier this month. "Activity is key for me," declared Whittaker. "I want to build my profile and become a household name."

His goal? At least five fights in 2024, possibly even a title shot before year's end. The March 31st fight, airing live on Sky Sports and Peacock+, marks his second bout this year and third in just four months.

Whittaker's recent antics have drawn mixed reactions. His showboating and entertainment value have made him a social media sensation, garnering millions of views online. Traditionalists might disapprove, but he undoubtedly brings excitement to the sport.

BOXXER's Ben Shalom sees Whittaker as a "superstar" with the potential to be the biggest boxing star globally. Whittaker, who faced earlier career injuries, is eager to make up for lost time, continuing his climb after earning a Silver medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

With four confirmed undercard slots, anticipation builds for the March 31st event. Stay tuned as Whittaker adds another chapter to his boxing journey!
