DILLIAN WHYTE has a “very, very good” chance of being Anthony Joshua’s next challenger, according to their promoter Eddie Hearn.

In the event of victory over Dereck Chisora it was considered a near-formality that Whyte would fight the IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion at Wembley on April 13.

Whyte produced a chilling, 11th-round stoppage of Chisora at The O2 Arena in London, but Joshua’s reputation has been somewhat undermined by the success of Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury, meaning the champion is considering further options.
