Dillian Whyte has shared the rumour regarding Anthony Joshua's next fight, and it doesn't look good for the Brixton-boxer.
It appeared Dillian Whyte was next in line to fight Anthony Joshua after destroying Dereck Chisora with a massive left-hook.
Whyte and Joshua exchanged words in the ring with the unified heavyweight king non-committal on giving him a rematch.
Joshua said he'd fight Whyte if a bout against Deontay Wilder fails to materialise. The WBC heavyweight champion looks set to take on Tyson Fury.
So that paves the way for Whyte, right?!
Not quite. It appears Joshua will now swerve Whyte by taking a fight in the States vs. Jarrell Miller.
"I walked up on him, and whispered behind him: 'you're a punk, let's make it happen'."

That rumour is doing the rounds with that talk catching the attention of Whyte.
"I have no idea [if I'm fighting Joshua]. I don't know what's going on. I expected him and his team to have at least contacted me," he said.
"I'm not meeting Eddie until another two weeks. That's not enough time to prepare for a fight like that.
"You need to know what's going on so you start preparing from now. I need to know what I'm doing now, why at the end of the month? I'm meant to be meeting him, I think the 14th or 15th.
"Rumour has it that Joshua's gonna fight Miller in Madison Square Garden, so let's see. It's a small world and a lot of things you hear in boxing there's usually a massive amount of truth to it," he added.
Joshua was set to return to the ring on April 13th at Wembley Stadium. However, a bout at Madison Square Garden in New York is now in the pipeline with Miller set to be the opponent.
Miller, who's a New York native, is under Eddie Hearn's Matchroom banner and is undefeated in 24 professional fights.
