WE’RE used to seeing victims of Anthony Joshua join forces to lick their wounds, but now it seems entirely feasible two of Dillian Whyte’s victims could be about to fight.

Joseph Parker, 26-2 (18), and Lucas Browne, 25-1 (22), both beaten by Whyte this year, are exploring a potential fight in New Zealand, according to Parker’s promoter, David Higgins.

“Lucas Browne’s people are talking to us about a big trans-Tasman affair,” Higgins told RadioLIVE. “It would probably make sense in Auckland or New Zealand, because Joe has a better fan base in New Zealand than Browne has in Australia, so you could mount a big trans-Tasman clash.”
