Joshua insists rematch with Whyte won't end well for old rival

‘It won’t be that good, it will be one-sided’: Anthony Joshua ready to fight Dillian Whyte once he’s ‘beaten Tyson Fury’ but insists long-awaited rematch won’t end well for his old rival

  • Anthony Joshua insists a rematch between rival Dillian Whyte will be ‘one-sided’
  • The world heavyweight champion is set to fight White if he bears Tyson Fury 
  • The pair last fought in a feisty 2015 British title seventh round victory for Joshua

Anthony Joshua claims he will not have any problems in once-again defeating old rival Dillian Whyte should a long-awaited rematch between the two take place.

There is no love lost between the London-born pair who first fought as amateurs in 2009 before a feisty first professional encounter in 2015 in which Joshua claimed the British title in round seven.

Promoter Eddie Hearn is desperate for Joshua, who now holds three of the four world heavyweight titles, to face off against Tyson Fury, leaving White with a chance to face the winner for the title.

Joshua has now revealed he would relish the chance to face off against old nemesis White in a future world title bout.

‘I know he’s been chasing a world title shot. I offered him a world title shot last year in April, he refused it’, AJ told The Sun.

‘Maybe he wants his hand on the WBC, but if me and Tyson Fury fight, then I know he didn’t want to fight me last year, but he’ll definitely have to fight me this time, if he wants his hands on the WBC belt.

‘Once I’ve beaten Tyson Fury, Dillian Whyte can come and get this work as well. It won’t be that good, it will be one-sided.’

After White’s crushing defeat to AJ in 2015, the Brixton Body Snatcher has rebuilt and is on an 11-match winning streak and is long overdue a world title shot, but rejected a short-notice offer from AJ in April 2019 after failing to lure Deontay Wilder to Wembley.

Joshua’s much anticipated opponent Fury claimed the WBC title in February after a thrilling defeat of Deontay Wilder and the pair were set for a third clash in June before the coronavirus outbreak, with October now mooted as the earliest date the fight will take place. 

The Watford-born was set to fight Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in June before it being scuppered by the Covid-19 outbreak.
