Dillian Whyte has informed talkSPORT that he hopes Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury’s proposed blockbuster heavyweight showdown falls by so he will get his shot at a world title.
Whyte has put himself again into the heavyweight title image after reclaiming the WBC interim belt on Saturday evening in Gibraltar with an excellent victory over Alexander Povetkin to avenge his devastating defeat to the Russian final 12 months.
And ‘The Physique Snatcher’ has admitted he desires that two-fight mega deal to fall by, with no affirmation on a date or a venue but.
“I’d like to combat Fury and Joshua. Everybody’s saying the combat is made, however there’s not a certainty,” he stated on Monday’s Drive.
“It’s not achieved and dusted. Often when a combat is confirmed you get a date, the venue… there’s nothing like on the market.
“All that’s out there’s Joshua and Fury have signed [an agreement] to combat one another, that doesn’t imply to say the combat will occur.
“Let’s hope it falls by and I can combat one in all them for the world title.”
The British heavyweight admitted he was craving for a first-round knockout over veteran Povetkin, who surprised the Brixton-born fighter with a brutal uppercut in August 2020.
“I solely made minor changes [from the first fight], as I understand how robust and the way highly effective I’m,” Whyte defined.
“Pay attention, I believed in myself. I knew I may do this [to Povetkin]. I used to be dissatisfied to not do it earlier.
“I used to be attempting to knock him out within the first spherical, however clearly he’s a giant, robust man and really skilled.
“I set about him within the first spherical as I used to be dissatisfied I didn’t end him within the first spherical, however as a result of he’s so harmful and difficult I needed to calm myself down, chill out and take a backwards step. I needed to be good and persist with the sport plan.”
