Dillian Whyte jokes he will ‘break Anthony Joshua’s leg’ and fight Tyson Fury in his place for WBC title

DILLIAN WHYTE has jokingly claimed he will break Anthony Joshua’s legs so that he can get the next shot at WBC champion Tyson Fury.

The Brit returned to the heavyweight division title picture with a brilliant rematch victory over Alexander Povetkin.

He knocked out the Russian in Gibraltar in the fourth to gain revenge for his brutal defeat in August.

Despite him regaining the WBC interim belt, it looks like the 32-year-old Body Snatcher may still face a lengthy wait for his first world-title shot.

Champs Joshua and Fury have already agreed a whopping £200m two-fight deal to unify the division.

Whyte has been in this position before and it appears he is sick of waiting around.

After delivering a brutal KO to Povetkin, he tongue-in-cheekily said: “I’ve waited long enough, there’s no way I should wait anymore…

“I’ll just break Joshua’s leg so they can’t make the fight, then I’ll just turn up and fight Fury.”

Whyte’s Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn has already confirmed he wants the star to get back into the ring this summer.

And he hinted at a huge showdown with Deontay Wilder.


Hearn said: “I’d like to see him box quickly again in the summer, maybe go over to the States and have a fight over there.

“We know there’s a logjam. For me, we called for the Deontay Wilder fight for a long, long time.

“Now, he got knocked out and he’s calling for the fight with Dillian Whyte. So for me that’s a stadium fight, that’s a colossal fight.

“The ultimate aim has always been for Dillian Whyte to challenge for the world heavyweight title.”
