ANTHONY JOSHUA broke his silence after his ‘enemy’ Dillian Whyte agreed a world-title bout with Tyson Fury.
And the former world champ even admitted he was ‘low-key happy’ for the Body Snatcher.
Fury, 33, and Whyte, 33, have finally secured a deal to step into the ring this year.
The Gypsy King’s WBC heavyweight world title will be on the line when they face off.
And Joshua took to his Snapchat story to share his brief views on the showdown.
AJ said: “Even though Dillian Whyte is an enemy of mine, I’m low key happy for him.”
A step-aside deal for Joshua to forgo his rematch with unified heavyweight champ Oleksandr Usyk fell through.
Now the Watford ace, 32, is expected to take on the Ukrainian champion in the spring.

But his and Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn suffered a blow when they lost the purse bid to stage the Brixton boxer’s first world-title shot against Fury.
Hearn bid £24million but was outdone by Frank Warren’s £30.6m.
The split is 80-20 in Fury’s favour, meaning he is guaranteed £24.5m and Whyte £6.1m.
And 33-year-old Fury hinted it could take place in the UK with a post on his Instagram immediately after the purse bids.
Alongside a smiling snap of himself, Fury said: “Big GK is coming home. UK baby.”
