Anthony Joshua: Facing Dillian Whyte is a strong possibility

Anthony Joshua

Anthony Joshua has said today that there is a strong possibility that he could face Dillian Whyte in a rematch come April 13th.

Dillian Whyte looks likely to be facing British rival Derek Chrisora in another rematch, should Whyte come through that fight and a fight against Deontay Wilder fails to materialise, he could find himself in the driving seat to face Anthony Joshua on April 13th at Wembley Stadium.

Anthony Joshua has said he will be ringside when Whyte and Chisora face each other, he is split on who he would like to win the fight. A win for Whyte could see Joshua face him again, but he’d also like to see Chisora win as the both fighters from Finchley ABC which produced talents such as Anthony Joshua, Derek Chisora and Spencer Oliver.

Deontay Wilder has a December fight with Tyson Fury and the American has said that he would like to renew negotiations with Anthony Joshua and his team after this fight. Should the two parties fail to agree to terms, Dillian Whyte is waiting in the wings to step up and face Anthony Joshua once again.

“I am not out again until next year, April 13. You know we’re ready Wilder. Whatever, we are ready,” he said.

“Just be realistic on the negotiations because that’s your issue not mine.

“But this isn’t about me, this is about Chisora-Whyte. I am looking forward to that fight, I will be there.

“It’s a blessing to take myself out of training and go and watch these guys go and perform and see it from a different point of view.

“If I was a betting man? I want Chisora to win because he’s my guy, north-west London. I respect him. He’s a Finchley ABC ambassador and he was a role model when I was coming through.

“And Dillian, I want him to win because I want to box him again. Come April 13, if Wilder doesn’t step up, they’re my two options.

“Good luck to Chisora, good luck to Whyte, they’re both relevant wins for me.”
