Dillian Whyte has stated his desire to fight Lucas Browne, following his capture of the British heavyweight title from Ian Lewison. 

The 28-year-old is eager to take part in one more fight before the end of the year, and is looking to Browne as a possible opponent. 

However, it is on social media that the two boxers have been making the headlines, after exchanging some heated words.

On being asked about a potential fight with Browne, Whyte commented: "Yeah I definitely want to fight Lucas Browne."

"Lucas Browne is a big baby. All he does is whine and cry about everything," pointing to the Australian athlete's relentless desire to win back his world title.

Whyte added: "He keeps talking about he's a world champion, he wants his world title back. He needs to fight some contenders. He says I'm not ranked, but clearly I'm ranked 13 in WBC. Lucas Browne is not even ranked in the top 40 of WBC.

"Me and him would be a good fight on Sky Sports. That would be a fight that everyone would tune into."

Another possible opponent for Whyte could be British compatriot Dereck Chisora, the fight expected by many to take place in December.

However, the IBF international heavyweight champion believes that 32-year-old might not be up for the fight. 

Whyte said: "That's a fight that I want and it's one that I've been trying to get for a while, but Dereck hasn't been playing ball.

"He hasn't been doing what he needs to do to build the fight, to make it a big fight. Dereck is really silly, because you should be building the fight. 

"He's not doing the right things to build the fight, which suggests he doesn't want the fight. He's doing a lot of talking and not a lot of fighting. Let's hope in between now and the new year, the fight can be agreed."
