Former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker (24-1, 18 KOs) and his team are ready to get right back in the mix and they have their eyes set on a potential fight with the top rated boxer under the WBC, Dillian Whyte.

Both Parker and Whyte have suffered their sole career defeats to the same man - current IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs).

Back in 2015, Joshua stopped Whyte in the seventh round of their grudge match. Last month, Parker became the first man to take Joshua the full twelve round distance, but lost a twelve round decision. 

Whyte (23-1, 17 KOs) has been out of the ring since a crushing knockout win over former champion Lucas Browne last month in London.

He is scheduled to return in July, and that fight may come against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, ranked No 2 by the IBF.

Whyte has called out Parker in the past, and now the New Zealand fighter has no issue with heading back to the UK to fight him.

"He has repeatedly called out Joe for a long time," Parker's promoter David Higgins told the Herald on Sunday of Whyte.

"Given he is waiting for another shot at AJ, which may take a long time to come, we are ready, willing and available to fight him - we're saying put your money where your mouth is.

"We're not calling him out, we're just saying Joe is keen to fight him. Joe's reputation and profile in the UK have increased significantly following the Joshua fight and a fight between Joe and Whyte would easily sell out the O2 Arena, so it would make financial sense for Whyte to take this fight, too."

Parker has also been called out by Tony Bellew in recent months. Bellew is going to return on May 5th in London in a rematch with David Haye.
