A rematch with IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua could be on the cards next year.
Dillian Whyte has moved into contention for a rematch with Anthony Joshua after winning his grudge match with Dereck Chisora by devastatingly stopping his rival in the 11th round.
Two years after narrowly outpointing his opponent, Whyte demonstrated his improvement and furthered Chisora’s decline by leaving him unconscious for a worryingly long time at London’s 02 Arena.
He was expected to be confirmed as the next challenger to Joshua at Wembley on April 13, but potentially faces an anxious wait while the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion considers instead fighting in the US for the first time.
Whyte will regardless remain at world-level as one of the division’s leading contenders and a likely future challenger to Joshua, but if he is forced to wait could struggle to maintain the impressive momentum he has built.
The way Chisora’s head heavily hit the canvas after Whyte’s powerful left hook landed secured the latest damaging defeat of what has already been a difficult career, meaning that at 34 and with fewer options he should consider retirement.
Fighting for the first time since curiously appointing David Haye as his manager and at a lighter 247lbs, the same as his opponent, he had perhaps undermined his punch resistance for a contest that was expected to be exceptionally physical.
