After Anthony Joshua had flattened Kevin Johnson inside two rounds, at the O2 Arena, the speculation started immediately as to who the unbeaten heavyweight would fight next.

Eddie Hearn, in the post-fight verbal exchanges, suggested Joshua would box again in July and then meet an opponent, in September that would fill the O2 Arena.

Now the speculation is increasing that Joshua could well meet an old foe, from his amateur days, somebody who put him on the canvas and is, now as a professional, willing to stand toe-to-toe with the golden boy of British heavyweight boxing.

The fighter in question is, as you?ve probably guessed by now, is Dillian Whyte, who has a professional record of 14-0 with 11 coming by way of knockout.

Whyte has previously called out Joshua and a bout between the two would have all the elements needed for a good guy bad guy bout.

It also seems that Joshua is keen to meet Whyte, remarking about a possible contest,

?It?s an offer we?re really looking into,?

?If he [Whyte] is patient, I?m sure he?ll get his opportunity. I?m not worried about Dillian. He?s got power, he?s undefeated and he?s very hungry. Anyone that thinks they?re going to test me, I?ll put them in their place.?

So how about it Eddie, if Joshua is going all the way then guys like Whyte are going to have to be dealt with and brushed aside.
