William Hill Vegas has signed a deal with Matchroom Boxing to sponsor the highly anticipated match between Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte on December 12 at London’s O2 arena.
Tickets for the British and Commonwealth title showdown between Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte sold out within hours of going on sale in September.
The heavyweights have been trading verbals for some time and Whyte (16-0) is determined to upset the odds and derail the rise of Olympic champion Joshua (14-0) when they finally meet again.
Whyte holds an amateur win over Joshua and has made no secret of his determination to repeat the dose in the professional ranks.
Chief support on a bumper night comes from Chris Eubank Jr’s WBA World Middleweight title eliminator with fiery Irishman Spike O’Sullivan, while Joshua’s fellow gold medallist Luke Campbell MBE, Liverpool Cruiserweight Tony Bellew and London’s Kevin Mitchell all feature in big fights on the bill.
“We are delighted to have William Hill Vegas backing ‘Bad Intentions’ on December 12 at The O2,” said Eddie Hearn, managing director of Matchroom Sport.
“The main event between Joshua and Whyte is the biggest fight of the year in Britain, with two young, hungry and unbeaten Heavyweights with no love lost looking to prove they are the best of British – it’s going to be a fantastic night.”
