Dillian Whyte scores Knockout of the Year contender over Dereck Chisora

Dillian Whyte scores Knockout of the Year contender over Dereck Chisora

Afterwards, Whyte called out Joshua, who stepped up to the ring and said Whyte was third on his list of targets.

British heavyweight Dillian Whyte has claimed a stunning win over compatriot Dereck Chisora, taking victory with an 11th round knockout at London's O2 Arena.

Despite the WBC-ordered rematch between its champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury, Higgins believed a Joshua v Fury fight was a possibility, given the enormous paycheck that would be warranted.

Anthony Joshua could be set for an April date with Dillian Whyte, according to Eddie Hearn.

Joshua told Whyte after Saturday's fight that he will defend against him next if he can not tempt Wilder to abandon plans to fight Fury in a rematch, but there regardless remains the possibility of him fighting in America for the first time and Hearn said he is "80 per cent" certain to honour the date at Wembley. "Because I showed him some respect", said a clearly-annoyed Joshua. "If there's anyone that deserves a shot, if it isn't them it's you".

A breakdown in negotiations ultimately derailed a potential fight between Wilder and Joshua earlier this year with the former subsequently fighting Tyson Fury as a result of that fight falling through. I think he (Whyte) is about 80 per cent likely to fight at Wembley. We've got to sit down with Dillian and his team and see if there's a deal to be done for April.

"It would be dumb to fight somebody else while you've already got a fight people are talking about". There's a very, very good chance that will be next. Joshua wants to be undisputed; if he can't get that, then he looks at Fury and Dillian.

If Parker wants to return to the United Kingdom he could be forced to pick up the crumbs for now, even if they come in the rather large form of Chisora. I was in great shape. You just keep going. It's not like I had a awful loss or it was a c****y fight.

"The money out of a [Junior Fa] fight is pocket change compared to what we could make in the United States or the UK".
