Dillian Whyte slams Anthony Joshua after 'ridiculous' offer

Whyte and Joshua have fought twice before once in the pros and once in the amateurs

But according to Whyte, he received the very first offer and it was very low - even less than what Whyte earned for last month's rematch with Dereck Chisora.

"I don't think he wants the fight, there are easier paydays out there for him and he knows I'll bring problems to his Mum's house".

But Steve Bunce claims AJ is likely to fight in America - meaning another event would have to be put on in his place.

With Joshua pondering a move from his April 13th fight at Wembley Stadium, to a fight at Madison Square Garden against Jarrell Miller, and Amir Khan choosing to fight Terrence Crawford instead of Kell Brook, Hearn has a gaping hole in his schedule.

The heavyweight contender from Brixton has emerged as the front runner to be AJ's next opponent despite fans calling for the unification fight with WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

"There's been the first offer, but it's utterly ridiculous, it's way less than what I made to fight Chisora", Whyte told talkSPORT.

But the Jamaican-born boxer insists AJ must get serious if they are to make the fight, reiterating the opening offer can not be taken seriously, he said, "He needs to take that into consideration". It's ridiculous, the offer comes with other options as well.


"It's just silly, I'm a pay-per-view fighter now in the United Kingdom which I've built by myself against all the odds". It's way less than what I made against Chisora basically.

"It's not like I'm a journeyman".

"Apart from me, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder you can't sell out Wembley", Whyte continued, "So let's be realistic".

"It's an easy fight to make".

Fury returned after nearly three years outside the boxing game to fight the American Deontay Wilder at the start of December, sharing the spoils after recovering from being knocked down twice during the fight. Big Baby, who is his stablemate at Matchroom, could land a fight with Joshua later in the year as the champion looks to make it in the US. "I trained alongside him, I sparred him for years and I know what he's like, I'd knock him out". "Nobody will complain about the fight".

Bunce told the BBC 5 Live Boxing Podcast‏: "I still fancy Joshua fights Miller in America".
