Revenge is better than any title, me and Joshua are like Ali Frazier – White


Former WBC heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte (28-3, 19 KOs), despite tomorrow’s fight against Jermain Franklin (21-0, 14 KOs), is eyeing a rematch with Anthony Joshua (24-3, 22 KO). But then he says that yes, it’s impossible, you must first beat the current opponent. And then he dreams again. And again he says – no, no, Franklin first.

Dillian claims that “no matter how much Joshua and I fight, it will always be like Ali vs Frazier.”

“Last time I almost finished him off, and there was an injury. Every time we put on gloves and go out against each other, it will be a war no matter what, even if we lose the next 10 fights in a row and then come out again. Because we have the same energy as Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier…,” White said.

Their rivalry traces from amateur (won by Dillian) to a heavyweight pro rivalry seven years ago, when White rocked Joshua hard but missed his chance and was beaten to a TKO in the 7th round.

AJ and his promoter Eddie Hearn have already assured that the winner of the White-Franklin fight will be a prime candidate to face Joshua.

“It doesn’t motivate me,” White said. “I’m just motivated to win. This is heavyweight. Never plan another fight while you have another one in your hands. In heavyweight boxing, anything can happen. Of course I want to fight Joshua. He’s one of the three I’ve lost to. I already avenged one defeat and I definitely want to avenge the other two [Фьюри и Джошуа]”.

“Yes, the rematch with Joshua is an amazing fight, but the most important thing for me is to avenge the defeat, man, this is my goal: avenging the defeat is more important to me than any world title,” White is excited.

There is a forecast and bets on the fight White – Franklin. Today they weighed in.
