Dillian Whyte has claimed Anthony Joshua is avoiding a fight with him, because he knows he would receive “major damage” in a heavyweight rematch.
Whyte also claimed Oleksandr Usyk who Joshua fights next is not a “true heavyweight contender” and believes Anthony Joshua
Joshua has been ordered to face Usyk, his WBO mandatory challenger, after plans collapsed for an undisputed world title fight against Tyson Fury.
But Whyte has raised doubts about whether Usyk can pose a serious threat to the WBA, WBO and IBF champion.
“It’s a dead fight. Usyk hasn’t looked good,” Whyte told Sky Sports.
“Who has he fought at heavyweight? Chazz Witherspoon, Derek Chisora. He looked terrible in the fights. He has no punch power.”
He added: “These guys know. You can say what you want about me, but there are two things that they cannot deny. I always come to fight and anyone that fights me, you will know that you’ve been in a fight, regardless, win, lose or draw.
“The two fights I lost, the guys took major damage.
“Anthony Joshua almost got knocked out when I fought him. If you watch the clips back you hear him saying, ‘If I took one more body shot from him, I would have folded in half’.
“These guys know regardless, win, lose or draw. I come to give work.”
