Dillian Whyte Furious at Severe Lowball Offer For Joshua Rematch

Heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte is viewed as the frontrunner to face IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua - on the superstar's reported return date of April 13 at Wembley Stadium.

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.

“There’s been a first offer but it is utterly ridiculous,” Whyte told Jim White on talkSPORT, “It’s way less than what I made against Chisora basically.

“It is a ridiculous offer, they’re not serious about the fight, I don’t think they want the fight, I think they just made an offer to cover ground. It’s just silly, I’m a pay-per-view fighter now in the UK which I’ve built by myself against all the odds. It’s not like I’m a journeyman. I’ve had nine fights since I fought him and won them all in spectacular fashion. I don’t think he wants to fight me, there’s easier paydays out there for him and he knows that I will bring problems to his mum’s house, so he don’t want it.”

Whyte believes he's the only opponent - besides Tyson Fury and WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder - with the capability to bring in a record crowd to Wembley.

Joshua stopped Whyte in seven rounds in a fire-fight clash back in December of 2015.

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

“It looks like Tyson Fury’s gonna fight Deontay Wilder, so if he’s serious he needs to stop messing about. This is an easy fight to make, it’s not a hard fight, I have the rankings, we have history. We fought twice already, no-one’s gonna complain about the fight, so what’s the problem?”

“[It’s] way off, how can I make more to fight Dereck Chisora? There’s middle ground, there’s okay ground and there’s way, way, way off. It’s arrogance."
