Dillian Whyte revealed Anthony Joshua brings the "anger and rage" out of him and suggests he could fight him up to four times in his career.

Whyte (22-1, 16 KOs), who is scheduled to fight undefeated Lucas Browne on March 24, previously lost to Joshua back in Dec. 2015 but remains keen to step inside the ropes with him again in the future.

"He [Joshua] knows whenever me and him are in the ring, it's going to be war," Whyte told Sky Sports. "I expect to fight him probably another three or four times in my career.

"It's one of those fights that, if I fight him next and beat him, I'll still fight him again.

"It's a good fight and there is so much emotion and anger and rage in that fight.

"I just enjoy fighting, whether it's in front of one person, 10,000 or 100,000. A fight's a fight to me. Everybody has got something they are good at doing.

"I've always been a fighter since I was a child and thank god I managed to make it work for me, and I'm actually fighting regularly now and doing it the right way."

Whyte is currently the WBC Silver champion and No.1 contender to challenge for Deontay Wilder's heavyweight belt. However, if he can't force a fight with the American, a world title shot vs. Joshua is the next best option.

"Wilder or Joshua, whoever ends up making sense," Whyte added. "Ideally we would like to fight Wilder next. Win that and go into the Joshua fight as the champion.

"But if AJ is sensible about a good deal, we could get it on next."
