    He does seem to have found maneuvered himself out of a title shot. Miller took the fight instead for Joshua, Breazeale now been mandated to fight Wilder. While he's still in the WBO mandatory spot if it goes to purse bids and he's still a Matchroom fighter then there's no way he can win the purse bid and get favourable terms, I mean Hearn isn't going to bid against himself and Joshua with Whyte is he. So the WBO route doesn't give him the payday he wanted he'll probably get a similar deal to what was offered before. Whyte would need to tie himself to another promoter to make a purse bid and hope that promoter can win the bid, which is a huge risk. A promoter could sign Whyte up and lose the bid on purpose and then he has Whyte on contract.

    Whyte like the rest of the division now that he's making decent money is choosing his career path based on money. He wouldn't take the Joshua fight because of money and he's now looking elsewhere other than Matchroom. If he does sign with ESPN then it pretty much locks him out of a title shot anytime soon. He could fight Fury but he only has a lineal belt, it would bring him money but no real title. So question is does Whyte actually want to win the title more than anything else or is he just trying to make the most money he can?

    most of the division isn't that spectacular. they start goofing around holding out for bigger money they can easily lose in the meantime and blow any kind of payday.

    It was all going to plan till Fury threw a spanner in the work's by pulling out after getting a final v Breazele - He turned down AJ due to a 10 week camp when he clearly stated he'd fight him back in September last year but that wasn't gonna happen as Eddie was chasing Fury or Wilder and Dillian was at the back of the que, He still has AJ as a mando WBA and it could go to an eliminator v Usyk to challenge AJ yet. WBC currently see $ signs so that route will be made as tough as possible especially if Wilder signs with Dazn - So WBA best hope for crack at AJ for now as politics take over yet again.

    Damn, I love Whyte (my fav fighter) but when you put it like that, it really is his and his ego's fault

    Whyte should have faced Wilder but we all know what the WBC is like.

    I haven't got a clue what you're on about but maybe if you read my post again and the post which I was replying to, so you have some context maybe you'd understand?

    Is that the exact figure which was definitely offered to him?

    From what I've read, the WBC have messed up. I believe that Eddie has contacted them as Whyte should have been fighting Breazeale next. So if Wilder-Brazeale does go ahead, Whyte will definitely be named the mandatory to the winner. So if that's the case, he's still in a good position. If Wilder wins, I don't actually think he'll face Joshua next. I think there's much more chance of seeing the Fury rematch. But whatever happens, within the next year, Whyte should get a fight between any of: Wilder, Fury or Joshua, unless Breazeale was to beat Wilder, which I think's unlikely. So overall, I still think Whyte's in a strong position.

    Yes that's the figure offered. Whyte and uncle Eddie have fallen out so I doubt he'll be putting his neck on the line for Whyte. Also him ringing the WBC will not make any difference. It's likely Wilder will sign with DAZN next week, if he does that all but confirms the Joshua fight and as per the rules of (all) the governing bodies, a title unification would put any mandatory fights on hold, and again it's almost certain a rematch would happen if Joshua vs Wilder happens.

    It's interesting.

    We don't know what he's thinking.

    What if he'd taken the rematch with Joshua, but Joshua had've knocked him out again, which would probably be likely?

    Then he'd really be out of the picture.

    At least at this stage he knows he can have a few fights before having another title shot.
