Whyte calls out Joshua after 'thunder left hook' KO

Britain’s Dillian Whyte has taunted heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua after winning his rematch against Dereck Chisora with a “thunder left hook”.

Whyte stopped Chisora in the 11th round of an all-British heavyweight bout at the 02 Arena on Saturday to make a claim to be Joshua’s next challenger.

A largely competitive fight was instantly ended when Whyte threw a powerful left hook that left Chisora unconscious and down for worryingly long.

Whyte then sent fight fans into a spin after brutally calling out Joshua – who was ringside for the bout.






“I want that [Joshua] lanky piece of s*** over there next,” Whyte said.

“Let’s do this, rematch.”

Whyte’s only career loss coincidentally came at the hands of Joshua, who seized his moment to step into the ring after the fight to fire back at Whyte’s taunts.

“Dillian, let’s forget about what happened in the past,” Joshua said.

“We know how the list goes, No.1, No.2 (Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury), and if they’re not available, let’s see if we can get it on.”

“If there’s anyone that deserves a title shot it’s Dillian Whyte.”


Chisora landed heavily on his head but gradually recovered after attention from his team, potentially leaving him facing retirement at the end of a tough career.

Whyte beat Chisora on a split decision in 2016, but there was no disputing the result this time.

Chisora led on the cards of two of the three judges but left his jaw exposed and Whyte took advantage.

Whyte improved his record to 25-1 with 18 knockouts. The one loss was against Joshua in 2015 when both were on the rise.

Joshua has gone on to own the WBA, IBF and WBO titles, and his priority next year is lining up fights against WBC champion Deontay Wilder or former world champion Tyson Fury.
