Watford’s unbeaten Commonwealth heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will take on fellow unbeaten Londoner Dillian Whyte on Saturday December 12 at the 02 Arena in London.

Joshua (14-0-KO14) and Whyte (16-0-KO13) clash for the British and Commonwealth heavyweight titles, six years after their first meeting in the amateur ranks and there is no love lost between them as witnessed recently in the pre fight build up.

WATCH: The Amateur Fight above

There rivalry goes back six years to 2009, when in Joshua’s 3rd fight, he took on Whyte who was making his amateur boxing debut. Both were mere novices that night and unrecognisable from the professionals they are today. Joshua was dropped in the second round of that fight by the aggressor Whyte who caught him flush with a left hook, right hand combination and went on to take a unanimous decision.

Will this have any bearing on a fight now? Does Whyte have the mental edge after already beating Joshua? The answers will be revealed next Saturday!

If you cant wait until then, then you can watch the full amateur fight between Joshua fight above.

PREDICTION?
