Dillian Whyte Says Joshua Has Peaked
Dillian Whyte, who was knocked out by Anthony Joshua in 2015, claims the IBF, IBO and WBA champion Joshua has reached his peak.
The two Britons have had a bitter feud that started when both were amateurs. In their only meeting prior to becoming pros, Whyte beat Joshua, and Joshua got his measure of revenge in their only pro meeting.
Whyte, 29, is aiming to get a rematch with his foe as he prepares to face Robert Helenius on Joshua’s undercard in Cardiff on Saturday night.
And Whyte, who has only lost one of 22 professional fights, claims he is the true challenger: “That’s a fight that people want to see. Everything is about timing.
“If I go fight him now, it doesn’t work in my favour. If I get a title or become mandatory challenger, it works out better for me. We will see. ”
“I’ve still got so much more experience to gain. The more time that passes before the fight the better I become and the worse he gets.”
“He peaked. He can’t get any better. I’ve got so much more to come. The only thing he can get is more experience. He can’t get anything else. He can’t get faster, he can’t get stronger.”
“I can get fitter, I can get faster, I can get stronger and I can get more experience. The more time the better it is for me.
“Look at the state he is in… How much more muscle can he build, how much fitter can he get, he’s like a racehorse, it’s impossible.”
Whyte is hoping to get a February clash with WBC champion Deontay Wilder with the winner then going on to face Joshua next summer.
Whyte added: “One of them has to fight me. Everyone is trying to protect their unbeaten record and thinks if they stay unbeaten it is better.”
