Dillian Whyte reveals how much he was offered to fight Anthony Joshua

Dillian Whyte has revealed he has been offered four times less than Tyson Fury to fight Anthony Joshua.

Whyte was offered £4million for a rematch with Joshua at Wembley next Saturday but a deal has not been reached.

“If they want a serious fight, they need to make a serious offer. But clearly he’s not serious about fighting me, he’s trying to just talk and tick the box. I know my value, I know what value I bring. What people have got to understand is what’s a large chunk of money to them and that’s a large chunk of money to me? It’s two different things. I’m not trying to sound arrogant, but four million pounds? I’m one of the top four fighters in the world, and really you can’t offer Tyson Fury £15m and offer me four.”

Speaking in the BBC documentary Fighting to be Champ, Whyte added: “Of course I believe I can become a world champion, anything could happen, of course, I believe I can beat [Joshua]. They wanted to pay me rubbish money in the first fight [and if] I beat him, they wanted the lion’s share of the rematch, which I didn’t think was right.

Joshua will defend his three world titles against Jarell Miller in New York on June 1.

“Jarrell Miller is an easier fight for him,” Whyte added.

“He beats Miller; Miller is cheaper, Miller has got no real profile. I’m way more dangerous for him than Miller is. Miller is just garbage, isn’t he?”
