Dillian Whyte has confirmed talks have taken place with his longtime rival Anthony Joshua about a possible rematch.

Whyte is recovering from a KO loss to Tyson Fury last month at Wembley Stadium.

While Joshua prepares for a rematch this summer Oleksandr Usykwho clinched his world heavyweight title in a points decision at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last year.

But Whyte has now revealed the pair both want to get back in the ring after their grudge match in 2015.

Joshua prevailed that night at the O2 Arena, delivering a vicious knockout in the seventh round.

But after the successful rebuild culminating in his failed bid to win Fury’s WBC belt, Whyte is determined to get back on the winning track before exacting revenge on Joshua.

Whyte said: “Run to my old nemesis Anthony Joshua who is talking about the rematch in the future and finally settling the score once and for all but first we need to get back on winning ways.”

Joshua’s rematch against Usyk is set for July 23, with a number of venues still struggling to host the competition before an official announcement is made.

Although Eddie Hearn previously stated that the fight is now set to take place in the UK or the Middle East.

The Matchroom promoter told DAZN: “We are in final negotiations with locations in the Middle East and the UK.

“We’ve looked at America, but I don’t think it’s going to happen there. I would love to be able to fight for Canelo for a week where we have news.”
