Dillian Whyte Looking To Return In The Fall
Dillian Whyte is prepared to return to the ring this fall, but this time against Anthony Joshua.
This Saturday, Anthony Joshua will have a fight of his own against Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia.
Whyte hopes to have a rematch with the British fighter, after Joshua won by seventh round knockout in 2015.
“I’m looking to come back in November in a big fight,” Whyte told Sky Sports.
“We have a lot of offers on the table at the minute. Obviously there’s lots of fights there. There’s Joshua-Usyk, I’d love to fight [Deontay] Wilder, I’d love to have another go at Tyson Fury again.
“Joe Joyce and Parker is there, there’s Daniel Dubois, but my main focus is to get back at Anthony Joshua. I’d love to have another fight with him and settle the score. Hopefully he gets the job done against Usyk and I get another chance to fight him again.”
Although November is still a few months away, the gap between Joshua’s fight on Saturday and a potential fight with Whyte in November might not be possible.
If the Joshua vs. Whyte fight does not come into fruition, Whyte may turn his attention to Tyson Fury, who recently announced his retirement.
Back in April, the two fighters met in the ring, Fury winning in the sixth round.
Whyte believes thar the fight was waved off prematurely.
“I’m very frustrated about the [first] fight because I was up against it from the start.
“I got caught with a good shot, I was definitely dazed, and he pushed me over and I fell over, and tore a ligament in my ankle.
“I’m not a moaner, I’m a warrior. And the bell went after the knockdown, they shouldn’t have stopped the fight. They should give you a chance to go to your corner. I want another go again,’ he added.
Even with controversies in place, Whyte questioned his performance in the fight as well and hopes to get a second chance fighting Fury.
“I’d be a lot more aggressive. Sometimes in life you make the wrong decisions at the wrong time. I was trying to box, I spent a lot of time over-thinking instead of being my usual raw aggression, bullish self,” he said.
