Dillian Whyte eyes Anthony Joshua rematch after Joseph Parker bout

‘Let’s get it on’

The Brixton man wants to fight Joshua again, despite a dramatic KO loss for the British title in 2015

British heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte has told talkSPORT he intends to rematch Anthony Joshua, providing he comes through his next bout.

Whyte will face New Zealander Joseph Parker on July 28 at the London’s O2 Arena, but is already looking ahead to possible future fights.

“I want all of those guys,” Whyte said to the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.

“I want to fight Wilder, Joshua… If Wilder and Joshua don’t fight, then me and AJ can get it on.

“That’s a fight that people want to see so I’m looking forward to that.”

The Parker fight has been billed as ‘the people’s eliminator’ with many seeing it as an opportunity for both men to firmly stake their claim for a world title shot in the very near future.

“Obviously it’s a massive carrot dangling,” the 30-year-old continued, “but I’m completely focussed on Joseph Parker.

“I think the Joseph Parker fight is as big as any one of those fights and as dangerous as well.”

Since suffering a seventh-round knockout loss to Joshua in 2015, Whyte claims to have changed his attitude completely, turning his career, and life, around.

“I’ve come on a lot more, I wasn’t training properly or living right at all at that time.

“I was just a street brawler, that got in to boxing. That’s what carried me all the way through, sheer power, sheer aggression and sheer determination.

“But now, after that fight I employed professional people. Now I understand to get to that level I need to do things properly and that’s what I’ve done.”
