DILLIAN WHYTE has been shot, stabbed and beaten up — but starring in MasterChef was one of the hardest things he has faced.
The reformed Brixton bad boy, who lived in Jamaica until he was 12, swapped boxing gloves for oven mitts and an apron.
Ahead of his showdown at London’s O2, he said: “I could cook from my days in Jamaica.
“But there is cooking to survive and there is MasterChef when your stuff is getting judged by professionals.
“Why would I be worried about it harming my reputation? There’s nothing unmanly about being able to cook.
“Mum showed me a few things but I wanted to do this by myself and it’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.”

What have the fighters said?

"He's undefeated, a top amateur, and you can see he's got a certain spark in his eye. He's got that arrogance of never losing.
"He's thinking, 'I've been in the ring 26 times, I've defeated 26 opponents. He feels unstoppable right now."
Rivas: "I have been waiting for an opportunity like this for years, and now it is happening. I am looking forward to showing people what I can do.
"I don't care what Whyte is thinking. If he's not thinking about me, that's his problem."
