In an interview, it is clear that Deontay Wilder hasn’t really been keeping up with British heavyweight boxing.

The rematch between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora was the perfect fight to end what has been an incredible year for British heavyweight boxers.

But Wilder remained absolutely oblivious to Whyte’s incredible 11th-round knockout.

When asked about whether or not he had seen the fight, Wilder said very surely that he hadn’t watched or even looked out for the winner.

“I didn’t see that. Didn’t see it, didn’t see it. Did he? In the 11th?” Wilder asked, utterly unaware of the war that had just taken place at the O2 Arena.

After his entertaining, but equally impressive performance, Whyte made it very clear that he would like to fill the vacant spot at Wembley on April 13.

Many fighters have been linked to fight Joshua on that date - one of which has been Deontay Wilder.

He, though, dismissed the fight on as early as April 13 and has the small matter of a rematch himself to refer to.

“The heavyweight division is so lit, everything is going on.

"You see I have my mandatory. There is a lot of side things going on. This is an exciting time for boxing, so we will see what happens,” he continued.

“I’m going with Tyson Fury. For sure. We have to do the rematch It was a controversial fight, and when it’s like that you have to,” affirmed the Bronze Bomber, who clearly has the Gypsy King as his priority over Joshua.

Paving the way, it would seem, for Whyte to take part in successive rematch fights.

Joshua claimed on the night that if Wilder wanted to rematch Fury, he would just have to whoop Whyte instead.

Only a fight with Joshua could Whyte be assured that Wilder might actually watch his fight.
