Whyte: After Fans Booed Joshua, He Went Home and Cried!

There is still nothing confirmed regarding the next opponent for IBF, WBO, WBA, IBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Joshua is still scheduled to return on April 13th at Wembley Stadium in London.

The next probable opponent has been pushed as Dillian Whyte, but now there are some doubts regarding that rematch scenario.

Joshua was ringside last month at The O2, and watched Whyte score a sensational eleventh round knockout of Dereck Chisora.

After the fight, Joshua and Whyte exchanged heated words.

Eddie Hearn, who promotes both Whyte and Joshua, said Whyte was the frontrunner to face AJ on the April date.

But according to Whyte's statements in a recent interview, there has been no movement on the rematch - and there haven't been any negotiations on the matter.

BoxingScene.com reported a few weeks ago, that industry sources were suggesting the possibility that Joshua would change the entire layout for his next fight - by making his American debut in May with a voluntary defense against Jarrell Miller at Madison Square Garden in New York City

Whyte himself is well aware of the circulating rumors that Joshua may pass him over in favor of Miller.

While Joshua was sitting ringside last month at The O2, he conducted a brief interview and was unexpectedly booed by the live crowd.

 Whyte found it amusing, stating that Joshua was angered by the crowd's reaction.

"The Golden Goose got angry because fans booed him," Whyte said to IFL TV.

"He's like: 'Why's my fans booing me?' 'I'm a legend, why are they booing me?' He went home and cried."

Whyte and Joshua collided back in December of 2015. There were plenty of fireworks, with Whyte rocking Joshua badly in the second round. But Joshua recovered and eventually knocked Whyte out in the seventh. Whyte injured his shoulder during the fight and underwent surgery for the injury.

[QUOTE=_Rexy_;19416896]Vacant titles don’t get thrown in though, regardless of if you think Joshua would have beat the guys on the list. That’s not how it works. It should have been Klit vs Ortiz like every other vacant title is done.…

[QUOTE=SeGoodland;19416850]Toffee has a point there, Joshua was already a current champ at the time. Looking at that list, Joshua would have beaten all off them anyway he would have been ranked up there.[/QUOTE] Vacant titles don’t get thrown in though,…

[QUOTE=_Rexy_;19416664]So you throw a vacant title into the mix for the hell of it? Mandatories be damned? We have 3 WBA heavyweight champions. It’s a problem.[/QUOTE] Toffee has a point there, Joshua was already a current champ at the time.…
