Dillian Whyte is craving another clash with Anthony Joshua, so much so that he’s ready to take less money.
The pair first met in the amateurs when Whyte beat Joshua, meaning when they met in the professional ranks in 2015 it was a much fiercer affair.
The buildup was heated and it spilled into the ring on fight night, as a mass brawl nearly broke out at the end of the first round when punches were landed after the bell and the entourage of the two men jumped into the ring.
The action eventually resumed and Joshua picked up a knockout victory with a brutal seventh-round uppercut that saw Whyte sprawled against the ropes.
Since then, both men have enjoyed mixed levels of success, beating some of the top fighters in the heavyweight divisions and Joshua even becoming a two-time world champion.
More recently, however, Joshua suffered back-to-back defeats to Oleksandr Usyk, while Whyte was knocked out by Tyson Fury in his last outing in April.
With no belt to their name, a rematch between the two could be the perfect opportunity for Joshua and Whyte to catapult themselves to the top of the heavyweight division once again and ‘The Bodysnatcher’ is genuinely excited.
“I will fight Joshua tomorrow. I will fight him for less money,” Whyte told DAZN.

“Every time me and him fight, sparks fly. We just want to fight each other.
“I will fight Joshua even when I am 60. This is a fight that will make me faster, improve my diet and get me to bed at 7 a.m. every day.”
Before any clash with Joshua, Whyte will first have to get past Jermaine Franklin (22-0), whom he will face on November 26 at Wembley Arena.
After that, Whyte might finally get his chance to get revenge on Joshua, as promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed the winner of ‘The Bodysnatcher’ against Franklin will be the favorite to face ‘AJ’ in 2023.
