Eddie Hearn exposes Dillian Whyte, former champ slows pride to accept low-ball offer to fight Anthony Joshua

The prospective match between Dillian Whyte and Anthony Joshua has generated a lot of opposing views. In regards to the fight’s progress, Dillian is asserting something entirely different from what Eddie Hearn indicated.

Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn, recently talked about the subject and gave details about the fight. The clash between the two heavyweights, however, has yet to have a set date. 

Whyte and Joshua have been exchanging jabs lately which seemed as though is just a pre-fight verbal altercation to spice things up. At first, it appeared that it might just be two boxers kidding around, however as time went by it became more serious!

Is Dillian Whyte vs Anthony Joshua confirmed?

As time is running out, now it seems the possibility of the fight is less likely to happen. In an interview with talkSports, Whyte said, “The fight’s just collapsed, there’s been no communication on the fight.” 

Even though Eddie Hearn earlier confidently said that this is the fight Joshua wants. AJ is set to square off against Deontay Wilder in December. In preparation for the December fight, Joshua is looking forward to getting into the ring in August and Dillian is his first choice. 

“We’ve had one three-line email about the fight, no conversations at all. We’ve been trying to contact Eddie Hearn for one month, multiple phone calls and emails, they’ve just gone missing.” Whyte said. 

Meanwhile, Eddie Hearn shared something that might make boxing fans sad. According to the British boxing promoter, even though no contact has been made but Dillian’s side was initially happy to accept the offer. 

“We made an offer to Dillian Whyte four or five weeks ago and they came back and the exact wording was ‘absolutely not, this is unacceptably low’ and basically nowhere near a number that they’d accept,” Hearn said. 

Anthony Joshua to compete in the Saudi tournament?

A huge boxing event that might take place in Saudi Arabia at the end of this year was also brought up by the head of Matchroom Boxing. The boxing competition featuring Oleksandr Usyk, Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, and Deontay Wilder, according to Hearn, still has a shot.

“There’s a lot going on with the whole Saudi Arabian set up. They want to do AJ against Deontay Wilder. They want to do Tyson Fury against Usyk, and they want to do that on the same night, which is a huge ask.” Eddie said.

Anthony Joshua defeated Jermaine Franklin in April to go back on the winning track after losing back-to-back fights to Oleksandr Usyk. Following his convincing victory, Eddie declared that they still have larger matches planned for this summer.
