Dillian Whyte: Joshua Fight is DEAD, I Want Breazeale Next!

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte appeared on Sky Sports, during a televised event on the network, and said the rematch with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua is dead.

Now Whyte is looking to have a showdown with WBC mandatory challenger Dominic Breazeale.

According to Whyte, his next fight is taking place at the O2 Arena, in London, on April 20th.

Whyte's new statements would surely indicate that Joshua is going to face Jarrell Miller on a date in June, in what is going to be the British star's American debut at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

If Whyte is unable to get his hands on Breazeale, then he wants to fight either former champion Alexander Povetkin or once-beaten puncher Luis Ortiz.

"The Joshua fight is dead. It is not happening at the minute so we move on," Whyte told Sky Sports.

"The good thing is I am in a position where I have got options. We wanted the fight, I think they wanted the fight as well but sometimes negotiations break down. I believe I have a certain value, bring a certain value to the fight. I need belief that this is what he wants to give me.

"Negotiations in business are very difficult. The fans don't really see the ins and outs of that. We move on. I fight April 20 here [The O2] hopefully against Dominic Breazeale, Alexander Povetkin, Luiz Ortiz or one of those guys. Let's see what Eddie can deliver in the next couple of days.

"I would fight Dominic Breazeale because he is a big guy, only lost once and he is WBC mandatory challenger," he added. Even though I am number one for almost two years he is number three and the mandatory - I don't understand. We want to get to the bottom of that situation once and for all."

[QUOTE=Bonduu;19484228][B]Whyte clearly ducked AJ[/B], he knows he would get beat with a brutal KO if he steps up to fight AJ. Going the route of the WBC to eventually face who gets crowned after the Fury-Wilder fight is a move…
