Whyte and Joshua have fought twice before once in the pros and once in the amateurs

Dillian Whyte (25-1) revealed that he has now received an offer to fight Anthony Joshua on April 13 at Wembley Stadium, but he's branded the proposal as, "utterly ridiculous", and claims it's less than what he made to fight Dereck Chisora in their recent rematch last December.

In an interview with United Kingdom radio station talkSPORT, Whyte claimed he had been offered "way less" for a rematch with Joshua than he had made for his last outing against compatriot Dereck Chisora in December, which he won by 1th round knockout.

"There's been the first offer, but it's utterly ridiculous, it's way less than what I made to fight Chisora", Whyte told talkSPORT.

'It is a childish offer, they know what I bring to the table, if he doesn't get Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury then I am the only one who sells Wembley out.' The Body Snatcher has fought his way back into contention with nine uninterrupted wins since he was stopped by AJ back in 2015. "The offer is silly, I am a pay-per-view fighter now, I have worked my way up with nine wins since I boxed him, all won in spectacular fashion".

"It's not like I'm a journeyman".

"Wladimir Klitschko's coming back, he's gonna fight again and I'm hearing him linked with a big British heavyweight". They share the same promoter in Matchroom boss Eddie Hearn, so in theory it should be an easy fight to make. Now Whyte has poured more cold water on a potential meeting.

The former two-time heavyweight champion Klitschko hasn't fought since his loss to Joshua in April 2017, but reports claim he could come out of retirement at the age of 42 and Whyte could be his comeback fight.

"It looks like Tyson Fury's gonna fight Deontay Wilder, so if he's serious he needs to stop messing about. I'll knock him out", Whyte said.

"Anthony Joshua can wait", Lewis told CompuBox. Though there is no word on whether or not Klitschko is in fact un-retiring, Whyte is intrigued by the concept of a potential fight against him.

"This is an easy fight to make, it's not a hard fight, I have the rankings, we have history".

"[It's] way off, how can I make more to fight Dereck Chisora?" I'll definitely knock him out.

"I know exactly what to do".
