Dillian Whyte: Ill Knock Out Wladimir Klitschko If He Comes Back

Joshua, who admitted recently he would rather take on WBC champion Deontay Wilder in April over a bout with Whyte, defeated the 30-year-old in December 2015.

On the eve of the British journalist Steve Bansi said that 42-year-old Klitschko plans to resume his career, and his first fight will take place in April 2019 in London at Wembley stadium.

Joshua is due to defend his world heavyweight titles at Wembley on April 13 and Whyte moved into pole position by knocking out Dereck Chisora last month. Speaking to talkSPORT, Whyte said: "I've been trying to fight Tyson Fury for ages, I would love to fight Tyson Fury".

But the Jamaican-born boxer insists AJ must get serious if they are to make the fight, reiterating the opening offer can not be taken seriously, he said, "He needs to take that into consideration".

"It's just silly, I'm a pay-per-view fighter now in the United Kingdom which I've built by myself against all the odds". It's not like I'm a journeyman, I worked my way up to No 1 with two governing bodies.

"Yeah, I'll fight anyone and I'll fight Wladimir Klitschko and knock him out if he comes out, I'll definitely knock him out". They share the same promoter in Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn, so in theory it should be an easy fight to make. But assuming that fight can't be made, Whyte and American Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller - also promoted by Hearn - loom as the most likely options.

He even used former foe Parker's name to make his case, telling talkSPORT that he "brings more to the table than what even Joseph Parker brings, who was a world champion [when he fought Joshua]". Me, Tyson Fury and Wilder, you can't sell out Wembley with anybody else.

Fury returned after nearly three years outside the boxing game to fight the American Deontay Wilder at the start of December, sharing the spoils after recovering from being knocked down twice during the fight.

"It's not Fury and it's not Joshua, and I'm hearing that could be the fight that we see there. I'll knock him out", Whyte said.

"We fought twice already, no-one's gonna complain about the fight, so what's the problem?" It's way less than I made against Chisora.

Bunce told the BBC 5 Live Boxing Podcast‏: "I still fancy Joshua fights Miller in America". I know exactly how to do it, because I've trained with him, I know all about Klitschko.
