Breazeale, who has fought just twice since 2017, hasn’t been on a fight card since his first round knockout loss to Deontay Wilder. However, he believes he holds all the advantages going into a fight with Whyte.
“I think it’s a pressure style fight,” Breazeale told Sky Sports.
“He’s going to bring it for a little bit, I’m going to bring it for a bit. In the end, the fans are going to be very pleased with what they get out of a fight between myself and Dillian Whyte.
“He’s a knockout artist, he loves to throw leather with bad intentions and I like to do the same. I think I have the upper hand on him as far as strength and athletic ability, of course with size. In the end, I think I come out with the knockout win for sure.”
Whyte, no doubt has a better resume than Breazeale, owning victories over former WBO world champion Joseph Parker
, Derek Chisora
, Oscar Rivas
, to name a few but the American believes, he has a skill set to match what Whyte brings to the table.
My ability to have been in the ring with some of the best in the heavyweight division so far, will be way too much for him,” Breazeale said.
“I think he has problems making adjustments as far as fighting guys who can box as well as fighting guys who can throw leather. I studied him for a little while. We were in some heavy contract negotiations. I think at this point, he’s a top-class heavyweight fighter from the UK, I’m a top-class heavyweight fighter from America – it makes for a great fight.”
