Dillian Whyte will look to boost his hopes of challenging for a world title when he takes on Lucas Browne in a heavyweight grudge match on March 24.

Whyte defends his nominal WBC silver heavyweight title at London's O2 Arena but a standout performance could put him in the shop window to challenge for world honours.

WBC titlist Deontay Wilder and old rival Anthony Joshua, the IBF and WBA champion, are the obvious targets, but Whyte is not underestimating his Australian foe with whom he has traded online barbs.

The 29-year-old Briton, who will be putting his number one ranking with the WBC on the line, said: "I can't wait, I hate Lucas Browne and I want to hurt him. He's said some nasty things and he's going to have to pay for them.

Jennifer Hudson's ex accuses her of violating court order protecting son's privacy - report

  Jennifer Hudson's ex accuses her of violating court order protecting son's privacy - report Jennifer Hudson's ex-fiance has accused the singer of being in contempt of a court order preventing her from making comments about their child. David Otunga, the father of Jennifer's eight-year-old son, is accusing the singer of failing to stick to the terms of a court order prohibiting either of the pair from disseminating photos or making comments about their child. On 11 December 17, David filed an emergency petition accusing Hudson of being in contempt of court and seeking sanctions. In November, the Dreamgirls singer obtained an emergency restraining order against her ex. She subsequently filed court papers accusing her former fiance of displaying "aggressive, threatening and harassing behaviour" towards the Oscar winner - allegations he vehemently denied. Now the former wrestler has claimed that, as he was being forcibly removed from their family home in front of their son by police - while The Voice UK judge was on stage in Chicago - she issued an exclusive statement to People at the same time regarding their split which said her actions “are solely taken in the best interest of their son.” Jennifer later agreed to drop the restraining order and name David as the primary caregiver of their son as part of a temporary custody deal. He alleges the People statement was damaging to his reputation, and that her main priority was to create negative press about him - not the protection of their child.

Browne appeared to be unconscious from the left hand that the 29-year-old Whyte had hit him with. I hope Whyte ’s promoter Eddie Hearn thinks carefully before he tries to make the Wilder- Whyte fight. I proved I’m world class. I’ve been working so hard, training away and it’s paid off.

Dillian Whyte will look to boost his hopes of challenging for a world title when he takes on Lucas Browne in a heavyweight grudge match on March 24. He's said some nasty things and he's going to have to pay for them.

"I'm not overlooking Browne, I'm focused on going to town on him. If I don't knock him out, I will not be happy. The plan is to beat Browne and move closer to a world title shot.

"Beating him should make me a mandatory challenger for a world title – I'm highly ranked across the board, I'll be a more than credible world title challenger. I've been building my way up so we're set for a big year."

Whyte improved his professional record to 22 wins from 23 fights, with 16KOs, in a humdrum points victory over Robert Helenius in Cardiff in October.

Both Whyte and Browne have served suspensions for doping offences in the past, the latter stripped of his WBA title after he tested positive for a banned substance in his victory over Ruslan Chagaev in March 2016.

The 38-year-old was most recently in action last June as he stopped the unheralded Matthew Greer and spoke dismissively of Whyte as he aims to bolster his own world title ambitions.

Browne (25-0, 22KOs) said: "I don't like anything about him. He's a loud mouth and I want to take his head off. I know if I stop Whyte impressively I'll be getting another world title shot."
