Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte 2: Fight date, ring walk time, undercard & betting odds

Everything you need to know as two-time champion of the world Anthony Joshua gets set to lock horns with old foe Dillian Whyte for a second time within the professional ranks in August.

The pair had failed to agree terms after Joshua's representatives inserted a one-way rematch clause into the negotiations, something Whyte was unwilling to accept.

However, the two camps reconvened negotiations and agreed terms for a summer blockbuster at London's O2 Arena.

When is Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte?

The two British heavyweights will face each other for the second time on Saturday, August 12th.

What time is Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte?

Due to the magnitude of this fight, it will headline the card, so both fighters will be expected to make their ringwalks after 6 PM ET.

Where is Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte?

Both camps have agreed to fight at The 02 in August, the stage for their first contest back in 2015. 

The two London rivals went toe-to-toe for seven grueling rounds before Joshua stopped Whyte thanks to a vicious uppercut in the seventh round.

Can I watch Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte on TV?

The bout will be shown live on DAZN PPV, with Joshua signing a multi-year contract with the streaming provider in 2022.

Are there any belts on the line for Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte?

Neither Joshua nor Whyte currently hold any belts, with Joshua losing his world titles to Oleksandr Usyk in 2021 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

The Brit then lost the rematch in Saudi Arabia in August 2022, but he did improve his world ranking by beating Jermaine Franklin last time out.

Whyte has never held a world title, and he lost his last attempt to win one in April 2022, losing by knockout to WBC champion Tyson Fury.

What is Anthony Joshua's record?

Joshua's record is an impressive 25-3, having turned professional in 2013 against Emanuele Leo. 

Joshua won his first 20 fights by stoppage, stopping the likes of Wladimir Klitschko, Carlis Takam, Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina.

Joseph Parker was the first man to take Joshua the distance, but he still lost, and Joshua racked up 22 straight wins before he lost to Andy Ruiz in New York. 

The Watford man avenged that defeat immediately, but he has now lost three of his last fight bouts.

Joshua has only been stopped once, though, and at 33, he will feel he still has plenty left to give at the top of the heavyweight division.

What is Dillian Whyte's record?

Whyte's record stands at 29-3, and he has been slightly busier than Joshua in recent years.

The 36-year-old started his career two years earlier, in 2011, winning his first 16 contests before losing to Joshua.

Whyte responded brilliantly to that defeat, winning another 11 contests before losing by knockout to Alexander Povetkin.

Only the very best heavyweights of the last decade have beaten Whyte, and with 19 of his 29 victories coming via stoppage, he will be a dangerous opponent for Joshua.

Who is the betting favourite for Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte?

Anthony Joshua is the pre-fight -600 favourite, which shouldn't come as too much of a surprise given his greater boxing pedigree.

Whyte, whose one and only world title opportunity ended in defeat against Tyson Fury, can be backed at +400 to pull off a shock and edge himself back into heavyweight title contention.

Who is on the undercard for Anthony Joshua v Dillian Whyte?

Details of the full undercard have yet to be announced.
