IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has clarified that Deontay Wilder is his “primary objective” so Dillian Whyte should sit tight for a rematch.
Joshua will guard his belts against Andy Ruiz Jr on June 1 however is as of now peering toward an undisputed title battle against WBC holder Wilder.
“I’m not taking a gander at Dillian any longer, I’m taking a gander at Wilder, since he has the belt.
“Ruiz Jr? If I move beyond him, Wilder, that is my fundamental target. Basic as that,” Joshua disclosed to Sky Sports.
Whyte was in the racing to turn into Joshua’s next rival and retaliate for the main loss of his profession, supported in late 2015 with the British title on hold.
In the wake of thumping out Derek Chisora last December, Whyte was considered as a challenger for Joshua’s reality titles, yet couldn’t consent to an arrangement.
Whyte will rather battle the unbeaten Oscar Rivas on July 12.
