Ben Whittaker's Bold Promise: Five Fights, One Year!

British light heavyweight prospect Ben Whittaker has vowed to increase his activity in 2024, with plans to fight at least five times this year and potentially contend for a title. Whittaker, known for his flamboyant style, is set to return to the ring on March 31 in a supporting role to the Fabio Wardley-Frazer Clarke British heavyweight title fight at The O2 in London. His opponent for the upcoming bout has not yet been confirmed.

Whittaker's decision to fight more frequently comes after his recent fifth-round knockout victory over Khalid Graidia earlier this month. Despite hoping for a higher-profile fight and a ten-rounder, Whittaker is eager to stay active and build his profile in the boxing world.

The 26-year-old's return to the ring will be his second fight of the year and his third in just sixteen weeks, signaling a significant increase in activity compared to previous years.


Whittaker, who won a Silver medal for Great Britain at the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics, has dealt with injuries earlier in his career but is now focused on making a name for himself in the boxing world.


Whittaker's unique style and personality have garnered attention both inside and outside the ring, with his recent performance against Graidia going viral on social media. While some traditionalists in the sport have criticized his showboating and antics, others have embraced the entertainment value he brings to boxing.
