Whyte On Wanting To Be The One Who Beat AJ

Dillian Whyte may have hungered for a chance to be the first fighter to blemish Anthony Joshua’s record, he does not regret their rematch talks breaking down earlier this year.

Preparing for a July 20th fight against Oscar Rivas, Whyte showed his support to Joshua, but was disappointed he did not get his chance to change the game.

“Listen, he’s a fellow competitor,” Whyte told Sky Sports. “He’s a British fighter, so any British fighter in my book that fights against anyone in the world, I will support them, even if I don’t like them.

“I don’t regret it, I was sad to see him lose, because him losing changed the game.

“I wanted to fight him and beat him for the first time as a pro, as he beat me for the first time, and I beat him for the first time (as an amateur,” Whyte continued.

One person earning Whyte’s scorn is WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, who has been laughing it up at the expense of Joshua, who fell to Andy Ruiz Jr inside Madison Square Garden last month.

“Deontay Wilder was laughing, he’s stupid because that’s the big money fight for him,” Whyte added.

“Where else is he going to get £100m? He’ll probably have another 50 fights and not even make nowhere close to that.”
