Dillian Whyte wins comeback clash against Christian Hammer with quick KO as full fight footage emerges


Dillian Whyte stopped Christian Hammer in just three rounds of his quickfire comeback win.

The ‘Body Snatcher’ returned for the first time since missing out on his rematch with Anthony Joshua after failing a drugs test last year.

He travelled to Castlebar, Ireland to face German heavyweight Hammer, as he returned to the ring in a low-key fight on St Patrick’s Day.

Whyte hadn’t fought since November 2022, but rallied to a dominant stoppage win in just the third round of the encounter to make a successful comeback.

The fight wasn’t broadcast on TV, but full footage has now emerged of the event, which White headlined at an unfamiliar venue.

He began the contest vastly on top, working the body well as he took control of proceedings early on and worked away any ring rust.

His success continued as he began to switch from body to head in the second stanza, with Hammer clearly already feeling the pace after just six minutes on the night.

The demolition job continued from the Brixton native in the third stanza, as he used his vast advantages to open up and land more punishing shots on his rival.

As the bell sounded for the end of the round, Hammer sat on his stool and decided his night was over as he retired in his corner.

It was a statement win for Whyte, but he would have been no doubt disappointed not to receive more rounds having not fought for over a year.

Whyte extended his record to 30-3, and will be hoping to try and now put his name back into the world title mix.

After the fight had concluded, the 35-year-old voiced his frustration and revealed that he called his rival a ‘coward’ after he quit.

He said: “He was negative all the way through. As soon as I hit him he was negative. I told him afterwards he was a coward and I mean that.”

“I’m so frustrated. I’ve put so much work into preparing for this fight and to have him quit after just three rounds is so frustrating.

“I told him afterwards in the ring that I always respected him but tonight he was a coward.”

Whyte will be looking to force his way on to the Saudi mega-money boxing cards which are being staged, and could face Francis Ngannou or Deontay Wilder.

He could face a lengthy wait for a title shot given Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk first meet on May 18 for the undisputed titles.

The British heavyweight also challenged Fury by WBC route in 2022 and failed to capture the belt losing by stoppage at Wembley Stadium.
