Rivas is undefeated for a reason, he had an accomplished career as an amateur, beating current WBA, IBF &amp; WBO Heavyweight champion <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/andy-ruiz-jr-beats-anthony-joshua-in-a-massive-upset/90450/" target="_blank">Andy Ruiz Jr.</a> and top contender Kubrat Pulev and he is coming off the best win of his career, a TKO victory over former title challenger Bryant Jennings.</p><p>Dillian Whyte is already a true top contender on the verge of getting a title shot. His only loss was in a close bout against recently-deposed champion Anthony Joshua on December 12, 2015 and he holds big wins over Dereck Chisora (twice), Robert Helenius, Lucas Browne and Joseph Parker.</p><p>This could be Whyte's last test before he gets a title shot, he is on a nine-fight winning streak and he is a former kickboxer and MMA fighter so he clearly knows what he is doing in the ring.</p><div>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"es\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;.&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/DillianWhyte?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@DillianWhyte&lt;/a&gt; 🤜🤛 Oscar Rivas&lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/WhyteRivas?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#WhyteRivas&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/GdjAogpUWR\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/GdjAogpUWR&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— DAZN USA (@DAZN_USA) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/DAZN_USA/status/1152338355797073922?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;July 19, 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt; &lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</div><div> </div><p>Most of Rivas' fights have taken place in Quebec and this will be his first trip to the United Kingdom while Whyte will be at home. Whyte has had high-level fights before while Rivas is just tasting that level for the first time.</p><p>Rivas may be outsized by a more experienced and explosive fighter, who will be in his hometown but he has skills. Beating a respected fighter in his home country is never easy, the playing field isn't always even in a scenario like this but if Rivas is patient this can be a close fight that lasts at least 10 rounds.</p></div>
