Lennox Lewis believes Joshua does not want to fight Wilder or Fury


New Twist In Joshua vs Wilder – Fight Now Looks Likely

According to UK Metro report citing FightHype, the Nigerian-born pugilist, who now holds three of the four major championships belts-IBF, WBA, and WBO titles was booed by fans at London's 02 Arena, moments after Dillian Whyte knocked out Dereck Chisora that he was looking forward to face either Wilder or Fury not Whyte.

From Olympic gold medallist in 2012 to going 22 fights undefeated and claiming three of the world title belts, Joshua has barely put a fist or foot wrong, yet there is a growing restlessness to see him face World Boxing Council champion Deontay Wilder, Tyson Fury and Whyte sooner, not later. "If there's anyone that deserves a shot, if it isn't them it's you".

Whyte (25-1, 18 KOs) dropped Chisora (29-9, 21 KOs) with a fearsome left hook, leaving his fellow Brit unconscious on the canvas.

"I want that lanky piece of s*** over there [Joshua]".

Wilder drew with Tyson Fury earlier this month and has the option of a rematch.

Whyte wasn't happy with that arrangement and walked away while Joshua was still talking.

Whyte will regardless remain at world-level as one of the division's leading contenders and a likely future challenger to Joshua, but if he is forced to wait could struggle to maintain the impressive momentum he has built.

"When he saw that fight, he was like "Wow, these guys can box" and now they're going to do it again - he's at one place in his career and in boxing".

And yet Whyte is not at all convinced he will get his chance at a third Joshua fight, having beaten him in the amateurs before losing when they met as relative novice professionals in 2015.

The crowd made their feelings crystal clear by cheering.

In the end though, Whyte's fitness proved to be the deciding factor, landing a decisive blow in the 11th to give him another victory over Chisora. There's a victor and a loser - you know what I'm saying? I'm quite respectful, but if Dillian steps in the ring with me, trust me, you best believe me, none of these heavyweights are on my level. I do that business in the ring and if Dillian's serious he can come and get his work as well.
