Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte have been exchanging fiery words on Twitter. Now, either all of this is a verbal brawl before the fight to hype it up, or it could be just two grown men exchanging heat with no actual intent for confrontation.
AJ yesterday refused to comment on the possibilities of that rumored showdown by saying, “I don’t know about any talks to fight Dillian Whyte. Everyday. AJ this AJ that AJ’s hairlines going way back. But I’ll still f**k your girl go retweet that.”
Today, The Body Snatcher decided to counterattack his former ring opponent by saying, “How’s about you stop being a b*tch. Let’s make the fight you f**king weird guy. Always talking sh*t tweeting stuff then deleting be a man you little b*tch.”

Anthony and Whyte squared off in a fight at London’s O2 Arena on December 12, 2015, eight years ago, when both of them were still unbeaten. The Body Snatcher’s string of victories came to an end when AJ defeated him in the seventh round.

AJ in his most recent Instagram story insisted on keeping his knowledge of the fight to himself, leaving it in a precarious position right now.
Whyte believes Joshua is terrified of him despite the fact that he was the one who lost their previous meeting. The Jamaican boxer currently has no fights set, while AJ is hoping to finalize a deal against Deontay Wilder in December.
