Dillian Whyte says he will target revenge matches against Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua in addition to a showdown with Deontay Wilder.

Whyte suffered the third defeat of his professional career at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, with Fury ending his WBC title challenge with a devastating uppercut in the sixth round.

The Brixton heavyweight waited over 1000 days for his first title shot and insists he will still fight the best in the division with Wilder in the binoculars.

‘The Bronze Bomber’ has not struggled since his back-to-back defeat to Fury, but is expected to return to the ring this year.

Whyte has already called for a rematch against Fury, whose future in the sport is uncertain after insisting he will now retire from boxing.

‘The Body Snatcher’ may not get its chance to avenge that defeat, but could target a rematch against Joshua, who also scored a knockout victory against him in 2015.

“I still want to fight the best,” Whyte said Sky Sports.

‘Listen, win, lose or draw on Saturday, I would have a few more fights against the best guys and then pull myself out. I still want to do the same. Nothing has changed.

‘I do not know what Wilder is doing. I just need to get back and I will fight against everyone I lost to again and try to avenge my losses.

‘One hundred percent [I can win a world title]. Even he [Fury] even said it, I’ll be world champion one day, so let’s see. ‘

Whyte will have to wait and see how the dust settles in the heavyweight division, where Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk will meet again in their IBF, WBO and WBA championship showdowns in July.

“We have to wait and see,” Whyte said.

‘The opportunities are still there. I’m still one of the best fighters.

‘Okay, I’ve had a loss, I need a fight to get back, but that’s not the end of the world for me. My team are realists and they will tell me you’re done. They would have said to me, ‘Yes, that’s what you’re out for.’

‘It’s obviously a hard pill to swallow. Back then I felt disappointed because I felt I disappointed everyone, but now we have calmed down and we have thought about it, I need to take a little break with my family and stuff like that, and so I’m ready to walk again.

‘We do not stop, we just keep going.’
