Dillian Whyte called out Anthony Joshua as he eyes a world title fight after knocking out Dereck Chisora on Saturday. In a repeat of their 2016 bout, Chisora seemed to have the upper hand but tired as the fight went on and was twice deducted a point.
However, Del Boy was still up on two of the three cards before Whyte unleashed a fierce left hook to the jaw which knocked his opponent out in the 11th round.

It was the second time Whyte has beaten his rival and the fight has been praised as one of the best heavyweight clashes of recent years.
At 30, Whyte now wants more and feels he deserves a second shot at Joshua having lost to AJ in 2015, the only defeat in his 25-1 professional career.
The pair exchanged words on Saturday at the O2 Arena and the Body Snatcher believes the fact he delivered on his pre-fight promises demonstrates that he deserves another go at the champ. “I said it wasn’t going the distance,” said Whyte.
“I was trying to box disciplined and take my time. I hurt him in the first round and thought ‘you have 12 rounds to do this’. I knew it would come. “It was 23 rounds of carnage. This is my time now. Joshua is talking rubbish, my career needs to progress. Time is ticking.”
However, despite Whyte’s wish, AJ says he is third on his list of targets, with the IBF, WBO and WBA champion eyeing either WBC holder Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
