Joshua Labels Whyte An 'Idiot' After Post-Fight Exchange

Whyte boxed patiently under pressure and found a late knockout

As for a victor for Sunday's clash, Higgins is leaning towards Whyte, but given the back-and-forth nature of their first encounter in 2016, Chisora is a chance at causing an upset.

Whyte would welcome either fight if the Joshua bout is not made, but for now he is ready to put his bad blood with Chisora to rest.

Former WBO champion Parker is desperate for revenge and has made that his priority for 2019 as he looks to get amongst the elite mix again.

But Whyte is unlikely to be handing out any presents to the Kiwi unless he has to.

That's no certainty though.

Higgins believed it could lead to the biggest pay-per-view number of either fighters' career and he wouldn't be surprised if Eddie Hearn pulled the rug out of a Wilder vs Fury rematch.

"You know why? I showed him some respect".

Whyte is now a clear front-runner to face Joshua on April 13th at Wembley Stadium.

Conveniently, Joshua was ringside to answer Whyte's call. It was a controversial fight and when it's like that you've got to come back.

Here's what was being spoken by the main players in the wake of Whyte's win.

Panthers sitting QB Newton; Heinicke to start vs. Falcons
Panthers general manager Marty Hurney confirmed Wednesday that Newton will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons . Three came at the end of either a first half or a game, when the Panthers attempted a Hail Mary.

Run-up to Flynn sentencing tinged with unexpected drama
Mr Mueller's office cited Flynn's "substantial" co-operation with the inquiry and career of military service. Flynn has been a central focus of the Mueller probe.

Harvey Weinstein's sexual assault case moves forward
He said he's confident Weinstein will be "completely exonerated", calling the judge's decision a " technical ruling on the law". Prosecutors said the material didn't pertain to Weinstein and the woman wound up not deleting anything.

"He starts piping up, I said "All right, cool".

That was met with groans from fans inside the O2 Arena.

Joshua has been criticized by some quarters for not facing undefeated WBC champion Deontay Wilder in a unification fight for the undisputed heavyweight title, with talks between the two camps breaking down earlier in the year.

"Dillian, let's forget about what happened in the past", Joshua said.

That's what I would predict anyway at this point in time - but anything can happen.

"I think he's about 80 per cent likely to fight at Wembley on April 13".

"(Wilder's team are) not showing a lot of willingness". "If there's potential, we need to move", Hearn said. "If there's anyone that deserves a shot, if it isn't them it's you".

Joshua was on commentary during the fight, and afterwards, the attention swung to him.

"Obviously he can make the decisions that he can make and his decision is not to fight any of them at this moment".

"I don't believe that Wilder will fight Joshua, so therefore we need to sit down immediately and see if there's a deal to be done". I can't do that, time's ticking.
