There’s loads on the line tonight at the O2 in London as Britain’s Dillian Whyte takes on Colombia’s Oscar Rivas. Both the WBC interim heavyweight title and a future crack at champion Deontay Wilder as mandatory challenger are the spoils for the victor in what looks set to be an explosive showdown. You can live stream the Whyte vs Rivas fight and its undercard using our guide below.
Dillian Whyte vs Oscar Rivas – where and when
Whyte vs Rivas will take place today (Saturday, July 20) at the O2 Arena in London.
The undercard is set to start at 6pm BST local time, with the main event expected to start at around 10.30pm BST (so 5.30pm ET, 2.30pm PT).
Whyte has had a frustrating wait to get his dream title fight, having been ranked as the top contender by the WBC since November 2017. A win tonight will earn him the big money bout he’s been craving for so long. Whyte comes into tonight’s tear up with nine straight wins under his belt – the most recent coming against his fellow Brit rival Dereck Chisora in December.
He certainly hasn’t taken the easy option with his opponent tonight – Oscar ‘Kaboom’ Rivas, a 32-year-old Colombian who usually fights out of Canada, has an impeccable 26-0 (18 KOs) professional record. His past conquests include Andy Ruiz Jr, the recent shock victor over Anthony Joshua.
There’s a pretty strong undercard to get things nicely warmed up as well, with veteran Brit heavyweight Dereck Chisora taking on the equally unpredictable Artur Szpilka from Poland.
