Anthony Joshua Vs. Dillian Whyte II Maybe for January or February says Eddie Hearn


Via Jack Tiernan: Eddie Hearn said the next fight for Anthony Joshua will be in January or February, possibly against Dillian ‘The Body Snatcher’ Whyte.

Hearn said that Joshua (24-3, 22 KOs) said he wants a rematch with Whyte (28-3, 19 KOs) next. However, Whyte, 35, still needs a confident November 26 win over American Jamaine Franklin (21-0, 14 KOs) on DAZN at Wembley Arena in London.

According to Hearn, Whyte is “Probably the first” for Joshua’s next fight was that he passed the Franklin contest on November 26 without losing. Another option for Joshua is Otto Wallin.

Whyte was about to lose to Tyson Fury in the sixth round last April, and he needs a solid win over Franklin in November to make him a viable opponent for Joshua.

Maybe January or February is where we’re looking“Eddie Hearn said to DAZN Boxing Show about when Anthony Joshua will fight next.

“About the name, talking to him the other day, he wants to fight Dillian Whyte, really. Dillian Whyte fights November 26 against [Jamaine] Franklin, who’s talking about a great game, and we’ll see how it plays out.

“I think Dillian Whyte is the leader [for Joshua] if he passes. Otto Wallin is a guy who has reached out many times. It was a good fight for him.

“Then there was the Wilder situation. I’m not saying it’s going to be a fight for January or February, but it’s certainly one he’s looking at. Feeling for AJ is the value of, and by the way, none of them are easy fights, the value of harmony is that they are equally dangerous sometimes.

“I don’t think he [Joshua] want to start leaving the top 15 and top 10 of the governing bodies and just looking for an easy contact. I think he wants a real fight, and that’s all the real fights you can see.

“I’m not happy that it didn’t happen because I was largely at fault,” Hearn said when asked if he was happy that the Joshua vs. Tyson Fury doesn’t take place on December 3 or not. Maybe it’s not the right time. But once he took the bait, once he thought it was the fight he wanted, that was it. Hearn said.
