Dillian Whyte Wants to Fight Anthony Joshua Next
It’s pretty obvious interesting, Dillian Whyte wants to face Anthony Joshua next, but he has questioned whether the world champion’s team will take the risk of a rematch.
Recently, Dillian Whyte knocked out Derek Chisora recently to stake his claim for a second fight against Joshua
Who is due to defend his WBA ‘super’, IBF and WBO belts at Wembley on April 13.
But Anthony Joshua’s priority of agreeing an undisputed heavyweight title fight against WBC champion Deontay Wilder remains a barrier for Whyte, and was the cause of a post-fight dispute between the old rivals.
Whyte again spoke of his desire for another battle with Joshua, but suggested the unified champion’s team recognise he is a much-improved fighter since his seventh-round stoppage loss three years ago.
Asked if he was frustrated at not being mentioned in the same breath as the three, Whyte said: “I’m not bothered
Asked why it is not happening, Whyte replied: “I don’t know, this is a business, and he’s thinking Dillian is a potential problem, there’s other easier paydays out there, so let’s see.
“It will happen eventually but I think it should happen now, because I’m in a good place now. Last time we fought I had a lot of issues, injuries and stuff, and I almost nailed him last time.
I think he’s seen my power is returning, I’m getting in better physical shape, I’m much more composed, as crazy as I was a couple years ago!
“He might want to fight, I want to fight, but I think his team is looking at it thinking: ‘You know what, we don’t need this Dillian Whyte smoke right now’.
Dillian Whyte said “I want to fight Joshua, we’ve got history, this would be the third time. He’s won one, I’ve won one. This would be the decider.”
And meanwhile, Dillian Whyte also inferred that Joshua, Tyson Fury and Wilder’s route to a world-title fight was simpler than his own.
According to Dillian Whyte, I just keep fighting and doing my thing
And of course, I don’t get caught up in all of this, but if you look at my string of opponents, last five or six, and I haven’t fought for a world title.
