Whyte, an Englishman originally from the Caribbean and brought up in Brixton, south London, looked ordinary in his last fight in October, but here the man who goes by the nickname of The Bodysnatcher, was devastating. "He doesn't have a really good chin and he can be hit", Whyte said.

Whyte, 29, remains first in line to fight the WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), but the American is also being linked with a title unification fight with the victor of Anthony Joshua versus Joseph Parker, who meet for the three other versions of the title next Saturday. "I wouldn't be here today if I didn't believe [I can be a major world champion]".

Wilder remains the No 1 target for Whyte, although a fellow contender and some other big name Brits might be on the agenda...

Browne started bleeding from his left eye from the end of the first round and it got worse through the second as Whyte found little difficulty in landing punches. It wasn't my night and massive respect to @DillianWhyte for his performance. In boxing's marquee division any fight can be transformed by one punch and Joshua will be wary of Wilder walking on to a big shot from someone else before he gets his lucrative chance of taking America by storm. If I have to have one more fight at intermediate I will do it, but I am ready now and I am willing to go. When [we] step in the ring, there is something that just sparks between me and him.

"I hope the WBC makes [Whyte] the mandatory challenger [to Wilder]", Eddie Hearn, Whyte's promoter, said.
