After Anthony Joshua demolished Kevin Johnson at the O2 Arena, in London, his promoter Eddie Hearn promised that Joshua would be given an opponent that would, in September, fill the venue.

Now ranked #2 by the WBC, following his victory over Johnson; the gut feeling is there that the popular Watford heavyweight would like to settle a private score, given the chance.

Joshua must be getting sick to death of the verbal insults coming his way from someone who put him on the canvas in his amateur days, that certain someone being Dillian Whyte.

With almost identical professional record, Whyte has a record that reads 14-0 as opposed to Joshua?s 13-0, the fight would sell itself.

And Whyte hasn?t let off the verbal button trying once more to lure Joshua and his team to the ring, remarking to the media,

?He knows I?ve got something in both hands that can put him down.

?He knows that when he fights me, I?m not coming to lose and just pick up a pay cheque. A lot of people say he?s the next Lennox Lewis but I think he?ll be lucky if he?s as good as Frank Bruno.

September is good for me. I?ve been off for a while because I broke my hand in the middle of April,?

?I?m looking to fight a couple of times in July and if we can get the deal tied up, then why not??

Is Hearn ready to take a risk with his heavyweight star?

I reckon he just might be, how about you?
