FightHype.com recently caught up with former heavyweight champion Joseph Parker , who is putting the finishing touches on training camp for his upcoming
Dillian Whyte has told Joseph Parker to forget about a rematch in the near future and gave a scathing assessment of the New Zealander's win over Alex Leapai.
The Brixton heavyweight is preparing for a high-stakes clash against Oscar Rivas at The O2 on July 20, live on Sky Sports Box Office, with the winner set to become mandatory challenger for WBC champion Deontay Wilder.
Parker suffered a points defeat in a brutal battle with Whyte last July and admitted he would take a second fight 'in a heartbeat', but his challenge received a dismissive response from 'The Body Snatcher'.

"Parker was never in my plans," Whyte told Sky Sports. "I beat him already, so why would he be in my plans? Someone I've beaten already.
"He wants me to be in his plans, but he's not in my plans.
"That's what I don't get. Him and David Higgins are talking rubbish. Why would I chase someone I've already beaten? It makes no sense."
The former WBO champion has signed for promoter Eddie Hearn, who also guides Whyte's career, and Parker returned to action with a 10th-round stoppage of Leapai last weekend.
But Whyte was far from impressed with his former opponent and questioned why the Kiwi did not produce a more ruthless victory.
Whyte: I laid out Fury!
Dillian Whyte says he "laid out" Tyson Fury in a sparring session as a war of words intensifies between the British heavyweight rivals. The Brixton man's status as the WBC No 1 challenger is at stake against Oscar Rivas at The O2 on July 20, live on Sky Sports Box Office, and victory could put Whyte on a collision course with Fury. WBC champion Deontay Wilder is set to face Fury in a rematch, with Whyte hoping to secure a shot at the winner, and 'The Body Snatcher' has reluctantly given his account of a spar with his fellow Brit after being angered by recent comments.

"It was terrible," said Whyte. "I don't understand what was going on and what [trainer] Kevin Barry was telling him. "Someone like Leapai, you smash their head in.
"I think a heavy bag is more dangerous than Leapai. A heavy bag will swing back, the heavy bag might hit you a couple of times."
