DILLIAN WHYTE has dismissed Joseph Parker’s claims he intends to “go to war” when they fight on Saturday in London.

The rival heavyweights fight to secure a rematch with Anthony Joshua or a shot at Deontay Wilder, and former WBO champion Parker insists that to do that he will change his style.

When being outpointed by Joshua in March and defeating Hughie Fury last September, Parker used his speed and mobility to fight largely on the back foot, becoming the first to take Joshua the distance by negating his power.
