Heavy weight Boxer Dillian Whyte is determined to settle the score with Anthony Joshua and is ready to take a pay cut to face the former heavyweight champion.
A rematch between the British rivals, who first fought amateurs in 2009, has been proposed for early 2023.
Revenge has been on his mind since losing Whyte’s home pro fight seven years ago, so much so that he would forgive his usual demands to get his hands on the British-Nigerian again.
Whyte told DAZN: “I’m going to fight Joshua tomorrow. I will fight for less money. Whenever me and him fight, sparks fly. We just want to beat each other.”
Whyte doesn’t see his rivalry with the former two-time unified heavyweight champion dying, having offered to fight even in his old age.
“I will fight Joshua even when I’m 60 years old. It’s a fight that will make you and me faster, diet better and put me to bed at 7 every day,” he said.
Before Whyte can even think about leveling his streak with Joshua, he will have to overcome a difficult match with Jermaine Franklin next weekend.
He said about the American: “He is the best opponent at the moment. It’s 22-0. It is very difficult to defeat someone who is undefeated. He doesn’t know how to lose. It will be an exciting fight for me.”
