Joshua Backs Chisora To ‘Whup’ Whyte


WBA/IBF and WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is backing Dereck Chisora to extract revenge on Dillian Whyte when the pair rematch at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday night.


Whyte grinded out a 12 round split decision win over Chisora in a Fight of The Year thriller two years ago but this time Joshua is backing Chisora to gain revenge


Speaking to Sky Sports, the world heavyweight champ said: "I think Derek is going to whup Dillian. I want him to.


"I want Chisora to win. I don’t want too much good for Dillian because he’s an enemy of mine. But I want Dillian to win as well, so we can have our rematch."


Whyte and Chisora waged a serious war for 12 action packed rounds in their first encounter but Joshua expects a more technical battle on Saturday.


"Can it be as good, this time around? Yes," added: Joshua . I think they will be a little more cautious - they know what each other can do. They gave a lot and it took a lot of out them last time.


"They learned from the first one. They put a lot on the line. In this second one, they will refine their skills. It will be a lot more technical.
