Dillian Whyte delivers a brutal 11th-round knockout of Dereck Chisora and calls for a rematch with unified world champion Anthony Joshua

It was an intense rematch for the pair on Saturday night. Chisora brought constant pressure and was upย on two out of three judges’ scorecards at the time of the stoppage, despite having two points deducted. But the 34-year-old left himself exposed and was caught with a crushing left to the jaw.

Afterwards, Whyte issued a heated challenge to Joshua, calling for Joshua to join him in the ring.

Addressing Joshua, Whyte said: “Rematch, let’s go. Let’s do this.”

Much will depend on how negotiations play out for Joshua’s Wembley opponent on 13 April, with Hearn attempting to lure Wilder away from a rematch with Fury following their draw in early December.

Following being called out Joshua moved from his commented position and branded Whyte an “idiot”ย and asked the crowd if they wanted to see a rematch with Whyte, who he stopped in seven rounds in 2015.

“You know why?” Joshua carried on “I showed him some respect, I told him, look, I knocked you out clean when we fought but I said let’s forget about that because we’ve both developed, so let’s prove who’s the better fighter now.

“If Deontay Wilder isn’t serious and he’s going to fight Tyson Fury and he don’t want to become undisputed, Dillian will get a shot. He starts piping up so I said, cool. I’m quite respectful.

“But if Dillian steps in the ring with me, trust me you best believe none of these heavyweights are on my level.”
