Joshua admitted he was interested in a rematch with Whyte, even before he defeated Browne, and their second fight suddenly seems even more enticing.

The Jamaica-born Londoner defended his No. 1 position in the WBC rankings after separating Browne from his senses with a ideal left hook at the O2 Arena, London.

Browne was rushed to hospital last night after receiving treatment in the ring, but he was understood to be in a good condition despite the nasty knockout.

"For now it is a case of congratulating Dillian Whyte on his performance and wishing Lucas a speedy recovery".

Whyte, who is ranked number one by the WBC, remains the prime contender for a potentially lucrative contest against that organisation's high-profile champion Wilder.

He is a big enough puncher to trouble London's Whyte who is a fitter, more disciplined technician since he lost a 2015 brawl with Joshua (his only defeat). I'm a good fighter.

Whyte, 29, remains first in line to fight the WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs), but the American is also being linked with a title unification fight with the victor of Anthony Joshua versus Joseph Parker, who meet for the three other versions of the title next Saturday.

Spanish judge says will try 13 Catalan separatist…
Five other Catalan politicians, including Mr Puigdemont, fled to Brussels following the failed secession attempt in late October. Defiance still reigns in Catalonia , where the parliament has just suspended a vote to elect Jordi Turull as its new president.

"It proved to everyone I'm world class".

That left him struggling to defend himself and he spent the next few rounds walking into shots from Whyte, who looked was impressive in dismantling his opponent and could take his time in getting to work.

For Browne this fight with Whyte is a way to redeem his name after the failed tests.

The Australian was brutally knocked out by Britain's Dillian Whyte in their WBA intercontinental heavyweight title fight in London on Sunday (NZT). I'm No. 1 baby, let's go! "Let's do this, June, live at the O2, let's get it!"

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn recently revealed that "The fight with Anthony Joshua is unquestionably the biggest fight in world boxing and anyone that knows me knows how much I would love to stage a fight like that".

Whyte's emphatic victory over the previously unbeaten Browne took his record to 23 wins from 24 fights.
