Whyte Accuses Joshua Pretending to Make a Rematch

Joshua Pretending to Make a Rematch

WBC interim heavyweight champion Dillian Whyte has accused that world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua was pretending to have a rematch with him in last June.

Joshua defeated his old rival via seventh-round KO back in 2015, and Whyte, was frustrated to have not landed the rematch after WBO, WBA, IBO decided to fight Jarrell Miller and later replaced by Andy Ruiz Jr.

“I’ve been saying I want the rematch since the fight. I know they were going to fight Miller in June in America, which I said months before the fight.” Whyte said.

“Just using me as a scapegoat, pretending they wanted to make the fight. If he wants to fight, I’m here, he knows where I’m at. They know where my value is, I know the game inside out. If they want the fight, we can make the fight happen.” Whyte added.

Whyte is going to fight Russian Alexander Povetkin on May 2, but the fight is likely to be banned due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The last fight of Whyte took place on December 7, 2019 in Saudi Arabia against Mariusz Wach. The Briton won by unanimous decision over the Polish.

“It is very hard and very challenging, because obviously you have to take it in good spirit. I’m a big guy. Training and running and sparring take a lot of me.” Whyte said.

“I’ve got a new strength and conditioning programme now. We’re working on my technique, working on building my strength and other things.

“My boxing coach is working on things getting the game plan in place. The more time I have, the better it is for me, doing a lot of new things.

“At this stage of my career, I’m still learning and improving. It’s frustrating, but it’s time for me to keep building layers, keep practising what I’ve been taught.by the time the fight comes. I’ll be flying.” he added.
