“I’ve never been this excited for a fight before in my life. I was excited for the first fight. Now, it’s like turning pro all over again. I’m buzzing. I want to go to training now. I’m forcing myself to take the two weeks’ rest,” Whyte told Sky Sports.
“It’s all good. I learn quick. I just can’t wait to get back in there. I want to go now. I have been hounding Eddie every day to hear what they are saying about this rematch. There’s certain moments in your career that does something to you. The loss to Anthony Joshua done something to me. This time, this has done something else to me again. It’s crazy, I feel young and youthful. I feel good. It’s probably going to be the end of November, early December, so let’s see.
“People forget, I’m still improving. I never proclaimed to be the complete article. My style of fighting is also different from the traditional boxing style of fighting, because of my background, where I come from, and what happened to me in life. I need to approach it in a way where I take everything on board that has been said, and all the advice I’m getting, and mix it into a way that works for me, into my style. I’m not all of a sudden going to become a Klitschko and fight Povetkin like a Klitschko. I’m not going to become a Joshua, or whatever. I have to do what I do, how I do it, and make adjustments and that’s the key word, adjustments.”
