Dillian Whyte has two targets in mind for next fight after beating Joseph Parker

Saturday night’s clash between Dillian Whyte and Joseph Parker witnessed the WBC Silver heavyweight claim the biggest victory of his career so far.

Whyte became the first man to knock Parker down to the canvas of the ring on his way to a unanimous decision win.

Well all eyes have now turned to who ‘The Body Snatcher’s’ next opponent will be, as Whyte now looks for who to face next.

With a world title shot still a priority and Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder not on the cards for the time being, it appears his attention has turned to Manuell Charr and Tyson Fury.

“I want either Fury or Charr next,” Whyte told Sky Sports.

“Charr has the WBA belt so why not, it’s a good fight, he’s a great fighter and will come to fight. Whether he wants it is a different story, I know I do and it can be made.

“It’s time I got a shot.”

With Fury recently revealing he is close to agreeing a deal to face Deontay Wilder in December, Whyte has jumped straight to the point with why he would like to face the Gypsy King first.

He added: “Then there’s Fury. The guy’s a joker and a mess, mentally and physically, he’s irrelevant right now.

“He’s saying he wants to fight Wilder, but he’s talking rubbish, that won’t happen and it makes no sense right now.

“Fury-Whyte is a great fight, let’s get it done. It’s more realistic him fighting me. If he wants a real fight, we can get it on in December, it’ll have the money and hype, and it’ll be massive.

“It’s a proper British dust-up and will be a better fight than him against Wilder.”

It would appear that the two Brits have history too, as Whyte revealed that the pair ‘have a sparring history’, although he wouldn’t say what happened, despite it giving him an added boost of confidence ahead of a matchup.

“Fury knows what happened the last time we shared the ring. I’m not going to talk about sparring stories but he knows.

“I’d fight Tyson Fury tomorrow at a drop of a hat.”

Beyond that, Whyte is eyeing up a rematch against Anthony Joshua, with Wembley already provisionally booked to host Joshua’s first fight in 2019.

“Let’s face Fury in December, then Joshua at Wembley and then Deontay Wilder to become the undisputed king.

“I could go in as a world champion for the AJ rematch if I beat Charr first which would make it huge.

“I will always want to fight Joshua, we have that rivalry. I know I will beat him when the time comes.”
