Joshua Labels Whyte An 'Idiot' After Post-Fight Exchange

Dillian Whyte delivered an 11th round knockout to win his rematch against Dereck Chisora on Saturday night. Standing in the ring afterwards, he called for another rematch, one against Anthony Joshua.

The two fought three years ago with Joshua winning via a seventh round knockout.

Conveniently, Joshua was ringside to answer Whyte's call. If Deontay Wilder isn't interested, Joshua told his fellow Brit, then the fight Whyte wants will likely happen.

Whyte wasn't happy with that arrangement and walked away while Joshua was still talking.

"Dillian's an idiot, you know. You know why?" Joshua told Sky Sports later on.

Cos I showed him some respect, I just told him out straight, 'I knocked you out clean when we fought' but I said, 'Let's forget about that cos we've both developed and let's prove who's the better fighter now. If Deontay Wilder ain't serious and he wants to fight Tyson Fury and doesn't want to become undisputed, you'll get a shot.'

He starts piping up and I was, 'Alright, cool.' I was quite respectful but if Dillian steps in the ring with me, trust me, none of these heavyweights are on my level. I keep my lid on because I don't want to explode on any of them. I do that business in the ring and if Dillian's serious he can come and get his work as well.

"When the crowd start cheering and saying that they want to see Dillian and if it does happen, I don't want to hear no talk, when I whoop him and knock him out, [people saying] 'Oh, he's had an easy touch, he should have fought Wilder.'

"Anyone of them is welcome to step in that ring with me."
