Olympic super-heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will fight Dillian Whyte for the British heavyweight title in November or December.

Since wining gold at London 2012, Joshua has won all 13 of his fights as a professional inside three rounds.

The Watford fighter, 25, beat Kevin Johnson in his last bout in May but lost to Whyte, 27, as an amateur.

Londoner Whyte, unbeaten in 14 paid contests, served a two-year suspension after failing a drugs test in 2012.
