Dillian Whyte has heard a rumour about Anthony Joshua's next fight

It's been quite some time since boxing's heavyweight division has been as interesting as it is now.

With Anthony Joshua, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder fighting it out for the honour of being the baddest man on the planet, 2019 promises to be a thrilling year for fight fans.


All signs point towards a rematch between Fury and Wilder after their incredible bout in Los Angeles last month, making Joshua's next career move all the more intriguing.

Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn has previously hinted that Dillian Whyte is leading the race to share the ring with 'AJ' next, after Whyte put together a nine-fight win streak since their first meeting in 2015.

Fresh from his devastating knockout victory over Dereck Chisora, Whyte has admitted that he is none the wiser about the much-discussed rematch with Joshua but he doesn't expect to get the fight.

"I have no idea. I don’t know what’s going on. I expected him and his team to have at least contacted me," Whyte told IFL TV.


"I’m not meeting Eddie until another two weeks. That’s not enough time to prepare for a fight like that.

"You need to know what’s going on so you start preparing from now. I need to know what I’m doing now, why at the end of the month?

"I’m meant to be meeting him, I think the 14th or 15th."


Hearn has had Wembley booked for April 13 since last year and had Fury vs. Wilder finished with a definitive winner, the plan was to have Joshua fight the victor to decide the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis.

But the draw in LA threw a spanner in the works and now it's been suggested that Joshua will no longer be competing in London three months from now.

Whyte has even heard a rumour that 'AJ' is set to make his American debut against New York's Jarrell Miller.


Whyte said: "Rumour has it that Joshua’s gonna fight Miller in Madison Square Garden, so let’s see.

"It’s a small world and a lot of things you hear in boxing there’s usually a massive amount of truth to it."
