Wrote Znayu, Dillian white refused a rematch with the world champion in the heavyweight WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KO’s), according to World Boxing News.
According to the publication, white was offered 3 million pounds per match, and later increased the fee to five, but the boxer still refused the offer.
Fight white vs Joshua took place in December 2015, and ended with the defeat of Dillian knockout in the seventh round. After the fight, Joshua said he was willing to give a rematch to white.
As previously reported Znayu Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KO) may hold the next fight on June 1 in new York (USA) against Jarrell Miller.
This was reported by journalist Mike Coppinger on Twitter.
Miller immediately reacted on this information, noting that the team of Joshua prefer another rival of Dillian white. But confirmed that the negotiations really began.
“I think it is not so, as they say. Do you think Joshua prefers the easier opponents than me. For Example, Dillian White. It is likely that they have begun negotiations (with me) to make a guy (white) is a little more compliant.
Like I said, no specifics. It’s one thing when I have finished a contract and I have a pen in your hand. Quite another when the parties only just started negotiations, just talking to each other.
When we will see their offer on paper, then enter into the negotiation process for real. And yet-these are just conversations,” said Miller.
As reported by the portal Znayu Joshua will meet with Oleksandr Usyk.
