DILLIAN WHYTE has told Joe Joyce and Oleksandr Usyk to get behind him in the queue for a world title shot — if he gets revenge on Alexander Povetkin.

Whyte had been the WBC’s No 1 contender for over 1,000 days before he faced the Russian for the interim title and mandatory position in August.

Despite scoring two impressive knockdowns, he was scorched in the fifth as his plans for an overdue crack at Tyson Fury went up in smoke.

Now the Gypsy King has signed a two-fight deal with Anthony Joshua, while Usyk and Joyce are thrashing out a fight to decide the WBO’s mandatory man.

But bullish Whyte has warned them all he has jetted out to Gibraltar to grab more than revenge.

When asked if the Mexican sanctioning body  should reinstate him instantly with a win on Saturday, he barked: “They better f****** acknowledge my position, I’ve waited long enough.

“The winner of this fight should be made the mandatory challenger.

“If you take into consideration how long I was ranked No 1 and how many top guys I beat, I should get the title shot in front of both of them.

“Who has Usyk beaten at heavyweight? Only Chazz Witherspoon and Derek Chisora and now Joe Joyce.”

Saturday’s rematch was delayed three times while Povetkin, 41, suffered and then recovered from Covid-19.

Whyte, 32, has claimed the illness was a hoax just to afford the former world champion more training time.

But Povetkin hit back and said: “Dillian Whyte can think and say whatever he wants but we have the medical papers.

“I had to recover from the virus properly to protect my family.”
