Californian heavyweight Dominic Breazeale nicknamed 'Trouble' is keen to come to the UK and cause just that for British hope Dillian Whyte.

Breazeale is interested in challenging Whyte, who has been making quite a splash on the heavyweight scene in recent times.

The 32-year-old American had been waiting for a chance to tackle WBC champ Deontay Wilder having been installed as the number one contender after his victory over Eric Molina last December but with Wilder on the cusp of signing on to fight Tyson Fury, Breazeale has started eyeing up other potential opponents.

Whyte, coming off an epic victory over former champion Joseph Parker, is currently one of the most feared stars in the heavyweight division at present. His powerful punching has lifted him to a series of notable wins and will certainly pose a dangerous opponent for Breazeale.

Both fighters have only tasted defeat once in their professional careers, both downed by the unified champ, Anthony Joshua.

Breazeale and Whyte also share a frustration at being unable to clinch a deal to fight Wilder and 'Trouble' is open to coming to the UK and challenging the Brixton-based Whyte if that is what the fans want to see.

"You know, I thought the Dillian Whyte fight and myself was actually going to happen this year," Breazeale told Sky Sports.

"He's bound with the situation with the WBC and his silver belt, and I have the WBC mandatory. I only thought it was right for him and myself to get in the ring and square it off as the fans would love to see, so hopefully that fight does come here in the near future.

"It's definitely up to Dillian Whyte, but I'm a fan pleaser, and if the fans want to see it, I'm going to be the guy to give it.

"I'm in a situation where the belts are beautiful and I want to hold all the belts by all means, but at the same time, I want to please the fans. If they want to see it, I'm going to make it happen.

"I was looking to be in the ring earlier this spring in about April, and here we are at the end of the year, so it's definitely time," he said.

"We're looking at October, maybe even November. As far as an opponent, we're still searching.

"The UK did a phenomenal job of having me there. The hospitality was phenomenal.

"I gained a ton of fans. I can't wait to come back."

Whyte is yet to respond, but watch this space...
