Dillian Whyte talks up Anthony Joshua rematches

It has become very clear Dillian Whyte still has a lot of unsettled business with Anthony Joshua.

Last time the two British heavyweights fought, Joshua came out on top. He took down Whyte with an uppercut in round seven.

It was a very different matchup compared to the time they faced off at amateur level, when Whyte was actually able to stop AJ.

Nevertheless, the Joshua defeat is Whyte’s only blemish in 23-bout professional career and the ‘Body Snatcher’ is eager to set the record straight.

In fact, Whyte has bizarrely suggested a series of fights against his bitter rival.

“He [Joshua] knows whenever me and him are in the ring, it’s going to be war. I expect to fight him probably another three or four times in my career,” Whyte told Sky Sports.

“It’s one of those fights that, if I fight him next and beat him, I’ll still fight him again.

“It’s a good fight and there is so much emotion and anger and rage in that fight.

“I just enjoy fighting, whether it’s in front of one person, 10,000 or 100,000. A fight’s a fight to me. Everybody has got something they are good at doing.

“I’ve always been a fighter since I was a child and thank god I managed to make it work for me, and I’m actually fighting regularly now and doing it the right way.”

Although seeing three or four matches between the same boxers was an all-too-common occurrence in the past, only rarely do more than one or two rematches take place in the modern day.

If Whyte would lose to AJ for a second time, it would appear extremely unlikely Joshua’s team would grant him a third bite of the cherry.

In the meantime, Whyte’s next scheduled fight is against the undefeated Lucas Browne on March 24th.

He currently holds the WBC’s silver belt and, should he defeat Browne, is hoping to face the current WBC champion, Deontay Wilder next up.

However, if a match between him and the American proves too difficult to arrange, Whyte may decide to make his next target Joshua. 

“Wilder or Joshua, whoever ends up making sense,” Whyte continued.

“Ideally we would like to fight Wilder next. Win that and go into the Joshua fight as the champion.

“But if AJ is sensible about a good deal, we could get it on next.”
