Anthony Joshua's rematch with Dillian Whyte edges close after Whyte signs agreement

Dillian Whyte has signed and returned the requested agreement as the rematch with Anthony Joshua edges closer to an official announcement.

Joshua retracted a late request for a rematch clause in his favour earlier this week, removing a significant hurdle, and negotiations now appear complete ahead of a planned fight at The O2 on August 12.

Whyte had previously revealed how a late request for a one-way rematch clause in Joshua's favour had complicated talks for the fight after Whyte had agreed to their original terms.

Joshua already has been linked with a potential Deontay Wilder fight, eyed to take place in the Middle East later this year.

If he beat Joshua, Whyte would then look for a similar fight next himself. So this issue with a rematch clause could have been a major stumbling block.
