Joshua vows Whyte rematch following win over Chisora

Joshua vows Whyte rematch following win over Chisora

The pair clashed in the ring just after Whyte's win, with Joshua branding Whyte an "idiot", after the WBC Silver heavyweight title holder reacted badly to suggestions he was third in line to fight Joshua, despite his brutal knockout of Chisora.

"I can't sit around and wait for him (Joshua)".

Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) beat Whyte by TKO in December 2015.

'F****** hell. we had two good wars bro, ' Whyte told his rival, who replied: 'It was good fun'.

"Right now, it's all about enjoying the holidays, going into the New Year, enjoying the New Year, then getting back at it", he added.

"I keep my lid on it, because I don't want to explode on none of them, but I do that business in the ring, and if Dillian's serious, he can come get this work as well". Joshua wanted Whyte to confront him man to man as their bitter rivalry only increases fight by fight.

Wilder maintained his unbeaten record but was given a stern test by Fury in what proved to be a classic contest which ended in a controversial split draw. The fight with Wilder was mooted for London and Lewis feels it's where Joshua is protected.

Whyte is now a clear front-runner to face Joshua on April 13th at Wembley Stadium.

'I think he's about 80% likely to fight at Wembley on April 13'. I wasn't exhausted once, I was just pacing myself and I knew the knockout was going to come. "If there's anyone that deserves a shot, if it isn't them it's you". "That is the time to strike and him against AJ is an unbelievable fight". We haven't got long (to make Joshua's next fight).

But Hearn admitted that time is running out to get any deal over the line, which could see Dillian Whyte stepping up to take on his compatriot in April.

"We're all fighters, we all talk a lot of smack that we're going to do this or that to each other but when someone goes down like that you worry for him". He's just come back. You can't do that many rounds with someone and not respect them.
