DILLIAN WHYTE is now the front-runner to face Anthony Joshua in April, according to Matchroom promoter Eddie Hearn. “Our priorities have not changed to make the Deontay Wilder fight,” he added. “I can’t exactly say it looks like they want the fight. We’re ready to fight Wilder. "But maybe they can’t do a deal with Fury in the rematch. "If you look at the polls. I saw a poll the other day. It said, ‘who do you see as the best heavyweight in the world?’ It was 44 percent Joshua, 40 percent Tyson Fury, and 6 percent Deontay Wilder. "Although his [Wilder] profile has risen out of the Tyson Fury fight, if you’re Tyson Fury now, what deal do you accept to fight Deontay Wilder? "He [Fury] feels like he won the first fight. He should have won the first fight. Then you think, should we just make Joshua against Fury? "But also Joshua against Whyte is a really, really good fight."
