    Is "Stay Humble" pricing himself out of fights or does he think 80,000 people will pay to watch him shadow box?

    That PPV money can change a fighters perception of their value.

    Clearly Hearn thinks Miller is the easier fight for Joshua at Wembley.

    Whyte really should have faced Wilder by now- I don’t think he fights Fury as although it’s a good fight there isn’t anything to gain for either man in winning.

    Charr is always an option I guess but that really isn’t a PPV which Hearn craves now.

    If he's only offering crumbs to Whyte, will "Stay Humble" ever be generous enough to offer a slice to Wilder or Fury?

    Harsh on Whyte if he doesn’t get the fight though I think the outcome would be the same as the first fight. Isn’t he going to be mandatory soon enough anyway?

    I’d like to see AJ conquer America next...Miller at MSG would be a nice entrance...

    If Whyte is telling the truth, and the offer is less than what he made against Chisora, then that's nothing short of disgraceful. Would love to hear Hearn try and justify that one. His next IFL interview should be interesting.

    Wembley is booked. It would be a shame not to take all that money off the darts fans.

    Two fights Joshua shouod win with ease. Needs to fight Fury or at least Wilder.

    Was Whyte given 24 hours to accept? Or can he negotiate?

    I remember hearing that as well, that Whyte wasn't contracted to Matchroom but that was a while ago. My guess is he'll be signed up with them now. His stock has risen drastically in the last 2-3 years and is now one of the main players in the heavyweight mix. I think Hearn will have got him signed up to eliminate the risk of losing him to another promoter. I think he's too valuable to Hearn for him not to be signed up. He's one of his PPV cash cows now.

    What's the big deal here? How many fights are actually agreed after the first offer?

    Parker's team rejected multiple offers before eventually agreeing to the AJ fight.

    Chisora rejected multiple offers before eventually agreeing to the Whyte fight.

    Whyte will reject multiple offers before eventually agreeing to the AJ fight.
