Even after a reported offer of 4.5 million dollars, Deontay Wilder has still declined to fight Dillian Whyte. Eddie Hearn and Whyte are trying to get Wilder to bite and organise a fight in London for the WBC championship.
â€śWe have offered him five times more money than he made for his last fight, but he doesnâ€™t want the fight. So whatâ€™s the problem?” pondered Whyte in an interview with Sky Sports.
Whyte believes that Wilder is purposely ducking him and that’s why the American is ‘an embarrassment.’
“Whyâ€™s he avoiding? Because he knows Iâ€™m dangerous and he knows that heâ€™ll lose the fight. Guys like Deontay Wilder are an embarrassment to heavyweight boxing. All the great champions have losses on their record because they fought other great fighters. And thatâ€™s the problem with Deontay Wilder â€“ his last 10 fights have been with nobody,” explained Whyte.
