Former two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has responded to reports of a potential rematch with Dillian Whyte.

The 33-year-old posted to his social media on Friday evening, appearing frustrated with rumours linking him with a fight against Whyte this summer.

The first read: “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 stick f*** your girl go re tweet that.”

Joshua uploaded a second post shortly after alongside a video of British rapper Stormzy, reading: “AJ’s this AJ’s that – AJ says: F*** off.”

Promoter Eddie Hearn told iFL TV on Friday that talks had began for a second fight against Whyte following Joshua’s seventh-round victory over his rival in 2015.

Hearn says the fight was being targeted for August 12th on UK soil.

A potential fight with Tyson Fury was briefly mooted when the latter called out Joshua via social media last week.

Fury’s co-promoter Frank Warren however told talkSPORT that Joshua’s team had opted to focus on a fight in August before facing American Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia at the end of the year.
