Dillian Whyte: Fighting To Be Champ - a Newsbeat documentary

What will it take for British heavyweight boxer Dillian Whyte to get a shot at a world title?

It's proving difficult to get a bout against a world champion - some say it's a "stitch-up".

In the tense build-up to his fight with Derek Chisora, we look at what it takes to be a top class fighter, and delve into the business of boxing.
