Promoter Eddie Hearn has urged Anthony Joshua to forget about world title talk and focus on dangerous rival Dillian Whyte.

Joshua is considered the hottest prospect in the heavyweight division and is just days away from an eagerly awaited grudge fight with Whyte at The O2, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

There has already been speculation about a future fight between Joshua and Tyson Fury, who holds the WBA and WBO titles after his points win over Wladimir Klitschko, while the returning David Haye has also expressed a desire to face the Olympic champion in another potentially huge domestic clash.
