The British duo clashed in 2015, with ‘AJ’ knocking out his fierce rival in a pulsating performance
Anthony Joshua admits a 2019 rematch with Dillian Whyte at Wembley is a real possibility, if Deontay Wilder does not ‘step up’ to face him.
The world heavyweight champion is currently waiting to officially confirm his next opponent after knocking out Alexander Povetkin at Wembley last month.
Promoter Eddie Hearn has already confirmed there is an April date already booked in for the England national football stadium, but the opponent is as of yet unknown.
Whyte and Joshua famously squared off in 2015, with ‘AJ’ emerging victorious thanks to a seventh-round knockout.
And the 29-year-old has admitted a rematch with the Londoner is a real possibility.
“I am not out again until next year, April 13. You know we’re ready Wilder. Whatever, we are ready,” he told Sky Sports.
“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.”
