Heavyweight kingpin Anthony Joshua has his eyes firmly focused on a grudge rematch with foe, Dillian Whyte after describing their first clash as a glorified 'street fight'
The IBF and WBA champion looks set to re-match Wladimir Klitschko later in the year, but the Mirror is reporting that he has told promoter Eddie Hearn that he wants to end his rivalry with Whyte once and for all.
The Jamaican-born Whyte beat Joshua in the amateurs and then sent the imposing champion stumbling in the second round of their 2015 contest that ended with a seventh-round knockout win to the Brit.
Joshua is still troubled by the ring invasion that occurred at the end of the first-round that almost saw the fight called-off, after he landed a punch after the bell.
Whyte, who has a key-match up with Poland's Mariusz Wach in June, called out Joseph Parker following the Kiwis recent unanimous points decision win over Razvan Cojanu.
Whyte said that nothing about what Parker offered as a fighter worried him, and proclaimed he would knock the New Zealander out.
Currently ranked eighth by the WBO, a win over Wach could see Whyte vault up the rankings and put himself in line for a future shot at the Kiwi.
All that could be put on hold though if Eddie Hearn comes to the table with a mega-fight against Joshua that would make the 29-year-old, Whyte, a millionaire overnight.
For his part, Joshua's options could be hamstrung by the rematch clause that Klitschko is likely to invoke, whilst the IBF have also indicated that their top-ranked contender, Kubrat Pulev will be offered a mandatory title fight.
The Times is reporting that Klitschko will make his decision in June, at which point the immediate future of the heavyweight division should become clearer.
