    Anthony Joshua's next opponent appears to be narrowed down to two

    Anthony Joshua's next opponent appears to be narrowed down to two


    The British heavyweight boxing champion has spoken to media ringside as fellow countryman Dillian Whyte knocked out compatriot Dereck Chisora.

    Following the fight Whyte called out Joshua, hoping to avenge his 2015 defeat to the champion.

    Despite this Joshua re-iterated that American WBC champion Deontay Wilder is his preferred opponent for an April bout, but Whyte is now next in line.

    With Wilder currently seeking a rematch with Tyson Fury, the Whyte-Joshua fight appears likely.

    It's a blow to Kiwi Joseph Parker who is hoping for a rematch with Whyte, after the Brit beat him earlier this year.
