Dillian Whyte Wants AJ Next, Can’t Wait For Winner Of Fury-Wilder Trilogy

By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Dillian Whyte has seemingly called out Anthony Joshua, insisting he wants to take on the heavyweight champion now rather than wait for the winner of Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder.

Joshua and Fury looked likely to compete in a blockbuster British unification fight in Saudi Arabia this summer after months of drawn out negotiations.

However, an arbitration hearing ruled earlier this month that Wilder had a right to a third fight with Fury after he lost their second clash in February 2020.

They will now go toe-to-toe in Las Vegas on July 24 while Joshua appears poised to fight Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk instead.

Whyte’s victory over Alexander Povetkin in March secured him the WBC’s interim-world title, but a shot at challenging current WBC champion Fury is unlikely to occur this calendar year. 

Instead, Whyte has now thrown his name into the list of possible opponents for Joshua. 

The Body Snatcher’s trainer Xavier Miller posted on Instagram on Monday: ‘We want Wilder v Fury 3 winner.’

But Whyte quickly commented on the post saying that was not his intention, writing: ‘I want AJ now next.’
