Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte are set to rekindle their long-standing and bitter rivalry on December 12th, after both winning in impressive fashion at the O2 Arena on Saturday night.
Whyte kicked off the heavyweight proceedings, and looked promising against an experienced Brian Minto, halting him inside three rounds. The Brixton man started well, landing clean shots which led to an overhand-right dropping Minto at the end of the first round.
The Pennsylvanian regained composure however, and looked settled in the second, landing successful right hands of his own. Even if a huge weight difference meant that they were largely ineffective.
Whyte looked awkward at times, but eventually found the punch to end the contest at the start of round number three – a burgeoning right hand delivered to the ear. After a delayed reaction, Minto took a knee and couldn’t make the count.
Post fight, the Brixton man complained about an injury to his left shoulder, which he had sustained during camp. “I did my shoulder so I wasn’t throwing my left hook or jab a lot. I don’t make excuses out of injuries. I show up and fight”. The win moved Whyte to 16-0.
Bill-topper Antony Joshua then followed suit, by cruising to a first round stoppage over Gary Cornish. The fight lasted 97 seconds, and saw the previously unbeaten Cornish visit the canvas twice.
Joshua, who has yet to be taken past three rounds, explained post fight “I wasn’t trying to dish it all out in round one, but I managed to find shots to get the job done”.
Now 14-0, with a 100% knockout ratio, AJ expressed his satisfaction in facing Dillian come December. “He is 1-0. This is my chance to settle the score”.
The two heavyweights will return to London’s O2 for their Commonwealth and British title showdown.
