Whyte: Tyson Fury is Easy Work, I'd KO Chisora in Rematch

British heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte is clamoring to secure a major fight in the next few months.

In recent interview, promoter Eddie Hearn tabbed Whyte as the frontrunner to face IBO, WBA, IBF, WBO world champion Anthony Joshua in April of next year.

Joshua will first defend his world title on September 22nd at Wembley in London, when he faces WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetikin.


Joshua and Whyte clashed in December of 2015, and the Olympic gold medal winner won by knockout in the seventh round.

Whyte has placed himself back in line for a rematch, after winning a tough twelve round decision over Joseph Parker in July.

"It's the fight I think everyone wants - and I want it as well. Me and him are like a married couple. There's lots of mutual respect but we don't like each other. But I'm a risky fight for anyone. These guys know it. There is easier work out there," Whyte told Soccer AM.

And some of the other options for Whyte - include former unified champion Tyson Fury, who is heading to a future showdown with WBC world champion Deontay Wilder later this year.

"Why would I fight Tyson Fury? It's easy work. He's thinking: 'If I fight Dillian and I beat him, I'm going to be hurt, and have a hard time in and out of the ring.' Tyson Fury is a big awkward guy but he can't punch - he's got no punch power. I'd take that fight tomorrow, at the drop of the hat," Whyte said.

One of the more lucrative options would be a rematch with Dereck Chisora, who fought Whyte in a Fight of The Year showdown in December 2016. Whyte would win a twelve round split decision.

"Everybody loves a good donkey, don't they? Donkeys are very loyal creatures. I'd love to fight Derek Chisora, as this time I'd stop him. That fight was funny - it was my first 12 rounder and Derek was already British champion. I remember from sparring that he'd come on late in the later rounds," Whyte said.

"I was inexperienced. I tried to fight him and leave a bit of energy for the later rounds and, even then, I was fitter than him in the later rounds. This time it would be a piece of cake."

[QUOTE=landotter;19066878]I do find it funny Whyte says he gets ducked because he is too dangerous, but Ortiz has no dance partner, is still really respected, and completely ignored. I have grown to respect Whyte. He has taken some risks and…
