Boxing news – Anthony Joshua slammed
Unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has been slammed by his former opponent Dillian Whyte, who has accused ‘AJ’ of “fooling the public with fake excuses” about why their rematch fell through.
“Don’t just do what Joshua did, saying I refused to fight when we already knew – and had told everyone in December 2018 – that he had arranged to fight Jarrell Miller on June 1 at MSG before his fake negotiations with me.
“I’ve spent more time haggling over the price of tyres for one of my cars than they spent negotiating with me on the Wembley fight.
“A couple of texts and a five minute meeting. AJ was trying to use me to make it look like he wanted the fight and that he wanted to fight in the UK.
“If he wanted to fight at Wembley why didn’t he fight Miller there or Ruiz?
“It’s just b*******! I’ve wanted to fight AJ again for years and they know that. He had an immediate rematch with Ruiz, but won’t give me a rematch.
“That’s why I want the WBC belt so he can’t continue to avoid me and fool the public with fake excuses.”

Boxing news – Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder rumour address
Tyson Fury’s promoter Frank Warren has insisted they haven’t made Deontay Wilder a lucrative offer to get out of their contractual obligation to give ‘The Bronze Bomber’ a trilogy fight.
“No (step-aside) offers have been made,” Warren told Punching.tv. “As far as Tyson’s concerned no offers whatsoever have been made to Wilder or his team.
“At the moment, there is a contract in place that has to be honoured. I don’t think it will happen until October or November.”
Boxing news – Deontay Wilder reveals changes for Tyson Fury trilogy fight
Former WBC heavyweight king Wilder has revealed he plans to make two additions to his team ahead of his third meeting with Fury later this year.
“We’ve had a lot of people reach out but you have to be careful because some people just want publicity,” Wilder said.
“Boxing is very crooked, it’s a dirty business and you’ve got to be careful, it’s a corrupt sport as well.
“You’ve got to be careful with the people and their intentions especially when they weren’t around before.
“Boxing is a business like no other, you’ve got to be able to trust people and that’s the hard part.
“I am looking to bring someone in, we don’t have it down yet but I’ve got two people I’m bringing in.
“One of them always comes to camp on some basis anyway and we’ve got a great team that will be formed when everything gets back to normal.”
