While Dillian Whyte has been pretty busy calling out some of the heavyweight champions, some other heavyweights have been calling him out, including former foe Joseph Parker. So when Whyte learned that Parker was interested in a rematch of their summer 2018 fight, Whyte says Parker will just get more of the same treatment he got last time.

“I’ve beat him up already, and I’ll beat him up again,” Whyte told Sky Sports. “Joseph Parker shouldn’t be struggling with guys like Shawndell Winters. Who the hell is that guy? No one has even heard of him.

“I fight Joseph Parker again I will knock him out. I went into the fight with a broken hand and a broken rib and I still destroyed him. I didn’t outbox him, I beat him and dominated him. Imagine if I go in when I’m 100 per cent, no injury, what’s going to happen? The left hand was broken - it was the hand that I knocked him down with.”

Whyte would continue by saying Parker has had a lot of opportunities on the table only to waste them, saying Parker fought like a coward when he faced Anthony Joshua. Of course Parker isn’t the only one calling Whyte’s name. There’s also Dominic Breazeale, whom Whyte calls a ‘time waster’ since he agreed to fight him only for Breazeale to bypass it for a title shot at Deontay Wilder. Breazeale would suffer a highlight reel knockout in the first round of that fight.

But for now Whyte says he’s putting his focus into Alexander Povetkin, who he’s currently scheduled to have a July 4th fight against at Manchester Arena. There’s of course a chance that gets pushed back depending on how this pandemic develops, but it is currently on the docket.
