AS Anthony Joshua prepares to seek vengeance against old amateur rival Dillian Whyte on Saturday night, the Olympic champion feels the likes of Wladimir Klitschko and Tyson Fury would provide him with ‘real’ tests.

While Whyte is certainly the most confident of Joshua’s professional opponents to date – having beaten him in the unpaid ranks – few are giving much chance in their British and Commonwealth title fight.

The pair were originally slated to meet in September but an injury to Whyte’s hand pushed the fight back, and Joshua remains unperturbed by his opponent’s pre-fight jibes.
