Dillian Whyte is rumored to face Anthony Joshua early next year in a replay of a vengeful British bout.
Ever since ‘AJ’ was put on the market to find a rival back, Whyte’s name has been mentioned. There’s no doubt their rematch will be a hit, and it’s going to be a really exciting matchup at this stage in both of their careers.
Whyte returns this weekend against undefeated American heavyweight, Jermaine Franklin. This is his first fight since a sixth-round knockout loss to WBC champion Tyson Fury.
Despite hearing it old from media interviews, Whyte confirmed boxing society that there’s no real talk backstage going on about the fight against Joshua if he wins.
“No one has told me that yet. It was said in the media – no one told me that. But I don’t really care about that. It’s the heavy part and you can’t rely on it [what’s said], you must take is yes, man. A win doesn’t guarantee me anything.”
It is said to be like a man who, according to him, has been denied the chance to fight in the past. Whyte still claims that the former champion, Deontay Wilder, wants nothing to do with him.
He held the WBC mandatory position for a long time before being shot, although that was eventually halted when he lost to Alexander Povetkin.
Regardless of what lies on the other side, Whyte must win against Franklin to be present in the discussion of any significant fight. His last loss to Fury hurt himbut the competition is considered one of the best if not the best in the department to soften that a bit.
Franklin, on the other hand, is an underdog with a track record of no elite names. ‘The Bodysnatcher’ will have some serious questions to answer – and questions to ask yourself – whether he was in the fight for the wrong reason in London on Saturday night.
