Dillian Whyte accuses Anthony Joshua of cashing in on ‘easy and mediocre fights’ while fearing his chance of a showdown has gone

DILLIAN WHYTE accused Anthony Joshua of cashing in on "easy and mediocre fights" as he fears their potential heavyweight showdown is dead.

Whyte challenged the WBA, IBF and WBO champion to a second bout – having been beaten three years ago – after a brutal knockout of Dereck Chisora last month at the O2 Arena.

But 30-year-old heavyweight believes his opportunity to face AJ again is gone and slammed his rival for his choice of opponents.

Whyte told iFL TV: "Joshua is in the business of fighting easy and mediocre fights and making loads of money.

"Why wouldn't he fight [Deontay] Wilder for £50million? I'd fight Wilder tomorrow."

Whyte insisted he hadn't heard from promoter Eddie Hearn about the possibility of facing Joshua at Wembley Stadium on the proposed date of April 13.

He said he won't be speaking with Hearn until mid-January and fears American heavyweight Jarrell Miller will be the chosen opponent for Joshua.

Whyte added: "I don't know what's going on. I expected him and his team to have at least contacted me.

"I'm not meeting Eddie until another two weeks. That's not enough time to prepare for a fight like that.

"You need to know what’s going on so you start preparing from now. I need to know what I’m doing now, why at the end of the month?"

On rumours of Joshua facing Miller at Madison Square Garden, Whyte said: "It’s a small world and a lot of things you hear in boxing there’s usually a massive amount of truth to it."
