Anthony Joshua Reveals The Bet He Played On Dillian Whyte Last Night

Lucas Browne was taken to hospital immediately after his loss to Dillian Whyte on Saturday

The updates are encouraging given how bad Browne looked in the ring following the knockout.

Browne was gracious enough to give Whyte a shout-out on social media, on a day where Australian sport has made the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

The only blemish on his 24-fight professional record is a knockout defeat to Joshua three years ago, and the 29-year-old, fighting on an event televised in the United States, has worked his way back to become a very relevant part of the heavyweight equation.

A high-stakes battle could be an exciting prospect, although Whyte will argue he has already done enough to earn a crack at Wilder.

The two boxers may come face to face in the coming days, as Wilder and Whyte are both scheduled to be ringside when IBF/IBO/WBA champion Anthony Joshua collides with WBO champion Joseph Parker in a unification on March 31 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

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. "I am not world champion but I packed out the O2", Whyte told Sky Sports.

As for Whyte, he identified WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder as a potential opponent this summer.

The WBC Silver Heavyweight title was claimed by Whyte after his impressive, career-best, performance.

"Let's go, I'm ready, let's get it on".

"If Wilder fights anyone else I'm going to go to America and kick off". I'm No. 1 baby, let's go!

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 connected on Browne with a huge right hand, which turned out the lights for the previously unbeaten challenger, leaving him face first and motionless on the canvas.
