He has been one of the most avoided heavyweight fighters in the last few years. His KO victory over Bryant Jennings sent shockwaves through the division. He has a great amateur and professional record, including a win over Kubrat Pulev. I am more than happy to carry on fighting top 10 fighters like Rivas until I get my well-earned shot at Deontay Wilder or Anthony Joshua. I can’t wait until July 20 to fight again at The O2 which is one of the best venues in the world for boxing.”Rivas (26-0 18 KOs) is a dangerous opponent as the unbeaten Colombian heads into the bout coming off of the biggest win of his career when he stopped former title challenger Bryant Jennings back in January. That victory underlined his potential to be a future contender. ‘Kaboom’ is ranked at number ten with the WBC, seven in the IBF and a fifth with both the WBA and WBO. ‘‘I have waited for this opportunity for a very long time,” said Rivas. “Dillian Whyte is an excellent boxer, a world class fighter, and the number one contender. He deserves all my respect for his accomplishments, and I am grateful for the opportunity he is giving me.“This is exactly the kind of challenge I was hoping to get. I am undefeated, I am planning to keep my perfect record after July 20 in my quest to get the ultimate opportunity to become World champion.”“This is a great fight with both men coming off explosive late knockouts,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “Rivas is undefeated and looking to take Dillian’s number one spot but as we know, The O2 has become a fortress for him of late and this is set to be another war. We are planning a huge night of boxing on July 20 with a monster card topped by the brilliant heavyweight headliner.”  When is the Dillian Whyte vs. Oscar Rivas fight?The Dillian Whyte vs. Oscar Rivas fight will take place on July 20 live an exclusively on DAZN Where is the Dillian Whyte vs. Oscar Rivas fight?The Dillian Whyte vs. Oscar Rivas fight will take place at the O2 Arena in London, England.
