Anthony Joshua: “Forget Deontay Wilder.” The British fighter was focused on a repeat with Dillian Whyte.

The two Brits last fought in December 2015, and Joshua won by knockout in a fight that was very close.

At a press conference on Monday, Joshua, who is 33 years old, tried to calm down his rivalry with Whyte, which has often been very heated.

He said, “I don’t really see Dillian as a rival.” “Another dead body. Many people don’t like me.

“I don’t see Dillian as a competitor. I only look at myself.”

Whyte, who is 35 years old, told the media before the fight that he had “no hate” for Joshua.

It was a big change from the time before their first professional fight, when Joshua was angry at Whyte for beating him in the amateurs six years before.

After a late blow from Whyte, the fighters were pulled apart by their teams. Joshua teased his opponent the whole time as he took control of the fight, which was very rough.

But there were no fireworks at the Hilton Syon Park Hotel in London when both guys flew in from training camps in the United States.

Whyte took a shot at Joshua’s manager Eddie Hearn for the way he handled the talks, which were already complicated by the fact that Joshua plans to fight American Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia in December.

Joshua turned down the idea of meeting former WBC champion Wilder, even though Hearn said the fight will happen if Joshua wins.

The former undisputed heavyweight king said that he was not going to wait for Wilder or anyone else.

“Forget Wilder, those people have been driving me crazy for years. He said, “Even with [Tyson] Fury.”

“I don’t waste time waiting around for other people. Dillian is a strong and trustworthy rival.”

Whyte said, “I just get ready for the best version of him.”

“I have the ability to kill anyone. I’m thinking about winning. Knockout comes, it comes. I’m a dog, and I’m always looking to bite.”
