It has emerged this afternoon that Dillian Whyte has now received an official offer to fight Anthony Joshua at Wembley stadium on April 13th.
No details on what he’s been offered have been forthcoming as of yet but Talk Sport have now confirmed the following reaction from Whyte:
Whyte recently defeated Dereck Chisora in their rematch just gone last month in emphatic fashion inside the distance.
Previously to that he had also built up a strong run of competition, as has Joshua to be fair.
All in all, the above would seem strange that he’d be offered less than what he made for the Chisora fight.
Particularly considering the fight is at Wembley against a global star in the sport in Joshua will generate an awful lot more revenue than the Chisora rematch did.
If Joshua were not to land an opponent soon for April 13th time could be running out on the slot for Wembley with some suggesting as a back up plan he could even scrap the date entirely and face American Jarrell Miller in the US alternatively in May if he doesn’t land a credible opponent soon for the April 13th date.
