Dillian Whyte claims Anthony Joshua rematch is his ‘main focus’; five more potential opponents named

Dillian Whyte has revealed that he is eyeing a fight with Anthony Joshua next, as a rematch against his fellow Brit is his “main focus”.

'The Body Snatcher' has now been out of the ring for four months following his one-sided loss at the hands of Tyson Fury at Wembley Stadium in April.

The 34-year-old has no intention to retire just yet, though. He has confirmed that he wants a "big fight" in November.

A dustup with Daniel Dubois is reportedly the frontrunner, but Whyte has insisted that he would "love" to fight Joshua again.

"I'm looking to come back in late November in a big fight. We have a lot of offers on the table at the minute. Obviously, there's lots of fights there," Whyte told Sky Sports.

"There's Joshua-Usyk, I'd love to fight [Deontay] Wilder, I'd love to have another go at Tyson Fury again. Joe Joyce is there, there's Daniel Dubois.

"But my main focus is to get back at Anthony Joshua, I'd love to have another fight against him and settle the score so let's see. Hopefully, he gets the job done against Usyk and I get another chance to fight him again."

Whyte first fought Joshua back in December 2015 in a thriller at The O2 Arena when the rivals were still relative novices.

AJ was troubled for the first time in his career during this fight, but he came on strong to knockout Whyte in the seventh round.

Both men have improved a lot since their first meeting and there will be a lot of interest in the rematch whether titles are on the line or not.

While he may not see eye to eye with Joshua, Whyte has at least confirmed that he wants his countryman to beat Oleksandr Usyk on August 20 in Saudi Arabia:

"It's a massive fight, the biggest fight of [Joshua's] career," Whyte added.

"I do expect him to bounce back, he's a British fighter like me and I only support our own, so I do hope he gets the job done.

"It's good for me if he wins as well.

"I can understand that [rediscovering his aggressive side], because I'm of the same mindset as well. In my last fight [against Tyson Fury] I wasn't as aggressive as I normally am, I've said the same thing to myself, I need to rediscover that aggression.

"I think it's the right mindset he needs going into the fight, it's the only way he wins the fight."
