After his one-round knockout of Bermane Stiverne, Deontay Wilder is clearly looking toward a huge unification fight, with Anthony Joshua, down the line.

However, if / when it could happen will no doubt be the subject of much debate.

But one British fighter who is still very much interested in mixing it with the big-punching American who has knocked 38 of his 39 opponents out, is Dillian Whyte.

The Brixton heavyweight, with the backing of Eddie Hearn, wants the opportunity to shine against the ?Bronze Bomber? and following the sensational win over an over-matched Stiverne, Whyte tweeted,

‘Well done @BronzeBomber but let’s do this work Feb 3 at the O2. I ain’t never scared, fact. Will fight anyone anytime.’

But Wilder seems to have no interest in fighting Whyte, remarking after his latest defence of his WBC crown,

‘They are trying to give me a peasant in Whyte. A king doesn’t chase the peasants. A king takes kings. I want Joshua. If he doesn’t give me the fight we have other plans.?

However, Wilder could be lured to the UK by a prospect of being paid a huge purse to fight Whyte with the promise of a fight with Anthony Joshua, in front of 90,000 spectators and millions across the globe at Wembley Stadium in the summer, if he beats Whyte!
