British heavyweight Dillian Whyte has promised to take down his domestic rival, Anthony Joshua, should the two of them collide in a rematch next year.
Whyte is going to collide in a rematch with Derek Chisora on December 22 at the O2 Arena in London.
The pair collided back in December of 2016, where Whyte was lucky to walk away with a close twelve round split decision victory. Their contest was one of the best fights of the year.
Whyte fought with Joshua in December 2015.
He hurt Joshua early, but AJ recovered, rallied down the stretch and then stopped Whyte in the seventh round.
The two of them have a storied past, with Whyte holding a win over Joshua in the amateurs.
The winner of the Whyte vs. Chisora rematch will become a frontrunner to challenge Joshua for the IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight world titles.
Unless he secures a unification with WBC champion Deontay Wilder, then Joshua is going to place his focus on the Whyte-Chisora winner.
"He's living his life but I'm here training. I'm not bothered by what he's doing. He can do what he wants," Whyte said to Sky Sports.
"He's doing what all the big stars do. When his time comes to get his whooping, I will give it to him. But for now, I will focus on Derek. It's Derek's time now."
Joshua, who back in September knocked out WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin, is scheduled to fight again on April 13th at Wembley Stadium in London.
Back in July, Whyte survived severe danger when he came close to getting knocked out by Joseph Parker. He was able to survive and won a twelve round unanimous decision. Joshua won a twelve round decision over Parker earlier in the year in a unification encounter.
