    Dillian Whyte has turned down an offer put to him by Eddie Hearn to fight AJ next saying that the offer wasn`t big enough, is he deluded?

    He is deluded as surely the chance to become 3 belt champion is the incentive, or the chance to avenge his previous loss

    Good for Whyte he took the first fight injured. AJ is a hype job all of his fights have strange circumstances surrounding.
    The fans are starting to see AJ was a hype job Hearn Created. Hearn was smart making AJ turn down 50 million dollars. DAMN 50 Million. Ortiz would father AJ, Hearn would've thrown in the towel

    Got to agree with the video Whyte is now worth more,the fights he had of late makes him worth the right money.

    “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"

    No, he is not deluded.

    Then surely the chance to hold all the belts is incentive enough for Joshua to make the Wilder fight, but that never happened.

    If they really offered him less than what he made vs Chisora then obviously they don't want the fight that much and the rumours about Miller being next seems to have some truth behind them.

    If it's true that they offered him less than the Chisora fight then I'm all on board with him. Fighters can't fight for glory alone. There have to be sound financial reasons for taking any risk. I wish more fans would understand this.

    Is that a BFV video? Yes he does some great videos.

    I havnt actually come across any interview where he says how much he has been offered only that its not good enough and lower than what he got against Chisora. If its true then Dillian has a point. Hearn has been pushing him as a PPV player now and a star in his own right and so Whyte cant then be expected to be told by the very same person that hes now just worth such an amount as nothing more than a contender to Joshuas belts. Its not a good time for Hearn to be lowballing people.

    I suppose its Dillian "i like to blow things out of proportion" Whyte so who knows, maybe the offer from Hearn is decent and Dillian is just making a meal out of it to get more, Dillian had no problem accusing Povetkin of being a coward the other day for no reason so hes guna say stuff for the sake of saying it.

    Also ive gotta say as a fellow Brit it should be a good scrap while it lasts but i know id rather see Joshua go the MSG and take on Miller just cuz i dont see the AJ Whyte having a different outcome and Miller and NY are both something new and ive heard others saying it so maybe Eddie is more focused on making that one after already giving Dillian alot of hope of getting his Joshua rematch so now maybe hes trying to put him off the idea but doing it the wrong way by not making a deal so attractive.

    Lowball offer, because the bodybuilder don't want the fight. Eddie Hearn telling this guy who he should or should not fight. Maybe Joshua isn't having it, and wants a real challenge. I do know there's a big briefcase of cash waiting in Alabama, and a contract waiting to be signed in Haymon's office. Guess it will all have to go to the incredible juggernaught Joe Joyce. Now that guy, knows how to make good business decisions,lol.

    I think 70/30 is fine for Dillian even that's probably a lot for Dillian. But he's absolutely right, being paid less than the chisora fight is terrible the risk is far greater fighting Joshua.
